The Naxerans are a humanoid race native to the planet Naxera, distinguished by a set of frills extending horizontally on either side of their noses, their ebony-dark skin and gold-colored eyes. However, an off-shoot race, the Weyrie, have white skin and blue eyes. Naxerans do not sleep, nor do they dream.
Naxeran society is divided into castes: the G'Dok, or ruling class; the Leahru, or middle class; and the Efram, or working class. These caste names are incorporated into the individuals' names.
As of 2336, at least one Naxeran, Thule G'Dok Glemoor, serves in Starfleet.
