The Penzatti are a sapient extraterrestrial species hailing from the eponymous planet. They are green colored and have mobile antennae and three digits on each hand. They are also polygamous and polytheists, and pride themselves for their sophisticated mastery of computer technology, which they considered far above that of the Federation species.
They have successfully repelled at least one large-scale Romulan invasion. Unfortunately, they have since been completely almost exterminated by the Borg Collective in an attempt to assimilate their technology which resulted in the destruction of more than 90% of their homeworld.
