In 2151, Humans made First Contact with the Axanar when an unnamed species had attacked one of their freighters. Enterprise under the command of Captain Jonathan Archer sent an away team over to investigate, and found the mutilated corpses of the crew. An examination of the bodies showed they had been drained of their triglobulin-rich bodily fluids.

When the Axanar returned, responding to a distress signal set by the Enterprise crew, a translator malfunction led them to believe that the Enterprise NX-01 itself was responsible. Fortunately, Hoshi Sato, having translated the Axanar language, was able to convey to the Axanar that the true attackers were the ones attacking Enterprise, to which the Axanar offered assistance. After helping the Axanar recover their dead crewmen and the Enterprise crew spent some time on the Axanar homeworld.

Sometime prior to 2152, an Axanar star ship stopped by the automated repair station. One of the Axanar crewmen was secretly added to the station's humanoid hosts whose brains had been tied to the computer of the station.

By the mid-23rd century, a conflict had broken out at the site of the Axanar's home world, involving the United Federation of Planets, Starfleet and Captain Garth of Izar. Izar was victorious in what became known as the Battle of Axanar and his exploits in the action would become required reading at Starfleet Academy. James T. Kirk would participate in the subsequent peace mission at Axanar, for which he was awarded the Palm Leaf of Axanar Peace Mission.


They have a central government with an elected council of 13. Each one of these individuals is responsible for a different aspect of the overall government. They each take turns as the head of the council. A full term as head of the government is 50 days. Each councillor holds this position 5 times during their stay on the council prior to new elections being called.


The Axanar were an androgynous humanoid species with an average life span of 400 years, native to the planet Axanar III. Their eyes were reptilian in appearance and their grayish skin was wrinkled. They had 2 narrow ridges that ran down the center of their heads to split at the nose and finish on both sides of their mouth.


The Axanar apparently prefer a nitrogen-methane atmosphere. The Axanar have green blood. Their body produces triglobulin from its zymuth gland. This substance has medical and aphrodisiac properties, and is used by a number of different species for those purposes. Some even forcefully "harvest" Axanar for their triglobulin.


The few records that are available seem to indicate that they have very few cases of mental instability. However due to their history and the danger that some alien species represent they have become rather xenophobic. In most cases they will avoid any physical contact with any other species. When they do agree to a meeting it is always on their terms.


The Axanar have explained in detail their belief in a universal entity that embodies the spirit and creative forces that resulted in the many species, worlds and stars. This being, or race of beings they call the Akamu. (ah-KAH-moo)

They have no images of this being but all of their temples have one wall that show's images of many different living things seemingly being created from nothing.


They have a unique set of myths that have to deal with their being the chosen of the Akamu. These myths explain the reasons behind their long lives, excellent health and stable mentality.


They have revealed to the Federation that they have a well balanced population with very few crimes and an excellent social assistance program. The cities are well maintained with modern support systems.


They have a well developed culture with a strong respect for artists.


Due to the limited physical contact very little is known about their customs.


While they have a healthy educational system and well funded labs they have fallen behind the Federation due to their refusal to enter into research agreements with any species. While they will trade for new technology it is usually a long hard process.


They have a strong internal economy and are fairly self sufficient. However they do have strong trade agreements with a number of Federation worlds that are close. They do not trade directly with any world that is over 25 light years away. For this they will either use outside sources or work through one of the closer trade partners that they have.


They have had to develop a rather strong military force as well as a strong alliance with the Federation in order to safe guard their people. While their fleet is not huge the ships are well armed and the crews very well trained.
