The Xarantine were a spacefaring species near Klingon space. The Klingons considered the Xarantines to be "no match" for them.

In 2151, the Klingon vessel IKS Somraw raided a Xarantine outpost and looted Xarantine ale to celebrate the victory. However, unknown to the Klingons, the ale was poisoned. Falling ill and attacked by Xarantine ships, the captain of the Somraw eventually decided to retreat into a Q'tahL class gas giant's atmosphere. (ENT: "Sleeping Dogs")


Background informationEdit

The plural name for multiple members of this species was scripted to consistently be "Xarantines". However, this clearly was slightly modified, with a combination of them not only referenced by that collective noun but also without the letter "s".

According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 56), the Xarantine were from the Xarantine (Zeta Leporis) star system. This system was located in the Beta Quadrant.


The Xarantine are also mentioned in the Star Trek: A Time to... and Star Trek: Destiny novels.

In Star Trek Online, a "Xarantine system" within a "Xarantine sector" is located along the Federation-Klingon border next to the Archanis sector.
