A humanoid species almost identical to Terrans, there is a genetic deficiency in the Kobliad protein deuridium causes short life spans on the order of 25-30 years. The Kobliad are known to have a major crime problem related to theft or fraud of deuridium. With proper dosage a Kobliad can live to be well over 100 years. They have applied for Federation medical assistance but are currently bogged down in Prime Directive restrictions since they are not a Federation member and have no major treaties. Hence, they have recently applied for membership.
