The Ankari are a sapient humanoid species observed in the Delta Quadrant of the Milky Way Galaxy. They look similar to the Tygarians, with bony structures on the head and lateral crest projecting horizontally above the eyes. The Ankari are a peaceful, spiritual culture, and possess artifacts which they use to summon nucleogenic lifeforms from a different dimensional realm. They consider these lifeforms as spirits of good fortune. Ankari spaceships use what is described as a unique form of propulsion, which makes them hard to be detected.
