The Meriabiians are a bipedal, avian race and the inhabitants of the planet Meriabii, a member world of the United Federation of Planets. They stand taller than most humans, and have bright yellow feathers and blue eyes, but other colour variations may exist. Although resembling birds, the Meriabiians do have humanoid arms and legs, and are perfectly capable of using devices like a tricorder. They have wings, though it is unknown if they can be used for flight. They have a lifespan of more than a hundred Earth years.
