Prime Directive - Telemachus
Nausicaans were large aliens renowned for their lack of subtlety and surly, ill-tempered manner. In some ways physically similar to the Chalnoth, they were generally tall humanoids surpassing two meters in height, with great physical strength. Their faces were commonly ashen in color and were distinguished by a prominent bone structure with sharp tusks protruding at either side of their mouths. Some Nausicaans also had a line of four small horns that ran vertically down the forehead.
The Nausicaan speaking voice was deep, with a distinct accent, though they were commonly the silent, brooding type.
During Orion Conflicts of the middle and late 22nd Century, Nausicaans frequently acted as the front-line military for the Orion Syndicate.
