Saowin's species are a sapient humanoid species from the Milky Way's Delta Quadrant. They seem to have blue skin with black spotted patterns and purplish hair. At one point they contacted the multi-species affiliation of problem-solvers known as the Think Tank in order to clear their homeworld of the massive earthquakes that castigated it. The problem was solved, but for a very high price, as the species were forced to pay in large quantities of bernicium ore, a substance they themselves need to build replicators to provide food for their population. What became of them afterwards is not known.
