New Playable Talaxian Species!

By LaughingTrendy | Thu 30 Oct 2014 09:35:00 AM PDT

As an additional benefit to our lifetime subscribers we’ve added Talaxians as a playable species for both Starfleet and Klingon factions. This new species has a unique species trait and optional trait. Below are the specifics on this new playable species!

Natives of the planet Talax in the Delta Quadrant, Talaxians are a jovial, friendly humanoid species who enjoy food and family and have a strong spiritual outlook on life. Talaxians have pale skin with areas of yellow to reddish spots on their heads, arms and bodies, and a plume of hair on the top of their heads. They are stocky and have dense musculature on their upper bodies and twin spinal columns. Most males have whiskers that develop in puberty.

In the mid-24th century, the Talaxians fought a violent and punishing war with the Haakonian Order, which ended after the Haakonians unleashed a metreon cascade on one of Talax's moons, killing more than 300,000 colonists and forcing the Talaxian government to surrender control of their world. As a result of the war, many Talaxians have left Talax. Some are wanderers and traders who range throughout the Delta Quadrant, but other Talaxians have gathered together in an attempt to settle a new world and found a new society.
