The Shatras were a race of bipedal reptilians native to the planet Trascor. These aliens were similar in size to tall humans, but were exceptionally strong. Their wide, flat heads were supported by a snake-like neck, and dominated by four bulbous eyes. This physiology allowed the Shatras to see in a 720-degree area. There were five distinct races of Shatras, including the Y'tras and the Hy'tras.
