MELKOT / MELKOTIANS


Planet of Origin: Melkot
Non-humanoid telepathic and xenophobic species. Melkotians appear as large brains covered by vital organs with two eyes in the front and short tentacles hanging from the bottom. They move and communicate with Psi abilities.
Their homeworld used to be surrounded by a series of warning buoys. Intruders were subjected to an elaborate telepathic execution involving illusion from the victims' own memory. Diplomatic relations were opened in 2268 and while they stay secluded, the Melkotians became members of the Federation of Planets.
