List of Named Elaysians

Full ILI GalleryPermitted Species Gallery


Elaysians are mostly humanoid with two bizarre exceptions. The very low gravity of their homeworld has caused an atmosphere that is more akin to pre-terraform Mars than of a class M world. This has created difficulty in their assimilation into the galactic culture, since no other humanoid race is as accustomed to low gravity as them. Their physiology is very different also in that they require only .16% oxygen in a standard pressure environment, and the remainder of their energy comes from anaerobic reaction in their cells. Despite these unique biological differences, Elaysians eat the same types of food and look quite similar to humans. They require the use of a limited motor support exoskeleton for living in a standard class M environment. The Elaysians have been members of the Federation for almost a century, but few travel off world because of the need to use anti-grav wheelchairs whenever they leave. Ensign Melora Pazlar is the first native to be in Starfleet. They are familiar with mass transit concepts, including the old Terran "trolley car". They are not to be confused with the Elasians of the Tellun system in the UFP-Klingon-border area.

  • The Elaysian lowland is known for having a heavy rain season that affects the population. Typically the climate is an average of around 68F (Temperate rainforest) with mild humidity. However during this heavy rain season the Elaysian climate produces more rain, less mist, and an increased temperature of around 85F (Tropical Rainforest). With this increase, paired with the Elaysian's reduced sweat glands, a vast majority of the population is advised to stay inside during this time of the year.[1]

Flora and Fauna

  • See Culture section for information on Elaysian fruit.
  • Classic Elaysian dogs come up to somewhere between your waist and hips in height. Are known to be grey in color, thin yet strong, with ears pointed up. They are built similar to the evolutionary ancestor to horses; built to run. [2]
  • Garlanic trees
  • Giant Koi [3]




Defining feature is the V shaped forehead ridge and no eyebrow hair. What is unique is that each Elaysian has a slightly different shape to their ridge. Some are more U shaped and some are more V shaped. The shape can also depend on which holo-image you look at, the lighting, face presentation and the age of the Elaysian in question.


Their hominoid physiology makes them almost human. However if it wasn’t for the V shaped forehead ridge and lack of eyebrow hair they can be easily mistaken for a human. The lower gravity and environment on Elaysia ll also creates a few unique points in their physiology:

  • Their physiology is very different also in that they require only .16% oxygen in a standard pressure environment, and the remainder of their energy comes from anaerobic reaction in their cells.
  • Members of the Elaysian species have reduced sweat producing hormones making them sweat less therefore overheat quicker than other species.[4]
  • Average range of heart beat is 100-160 BPM
  • Average range of respiratory rate is 8-40 BPM
  • Muscles on the sides of the ribs include a highly flexible cartilage coating






Elaysia is known for it's delicious local fruit. When comparing the fruit from Earth one can consider the most common Elaysian fruit to be a massive hybrid of Earth fruits. Clòimh Mhilis Meas, or more commonly cotton candy fruit, is the size of a grapefruit but with the skin like an orange. This outer peel is great for jerky or making a candy out of. On the inside the fruit has a flesh that makes a bowl on the inside. This flesh is green, sweet, gummy like and shreds well like you see with coconut. This flesh is great to eat by itself or shaved on top of ice creams. Inside this bowl of fruit flesh you have the seeds. These seeds are the size of grapes but have the texture of tapioca balls. The flavor of these seeds are a mix of grapes and lime. Most make a wine out of these seeds.[5]

Zalvri Peninsula Culture

  • Tor zel Tay - A form of martial art that originated on the peninsula. Known for its jumps and aerial moves that take advantage of Elaysia's low gravity. [6]



  • In some parts of Elaysia visiting wildlife preserves and coastlines are off limits at night.[7]
