"Allow us to take care of it. We look after our own mistakes."
a Thasian saying.
The Thasian are a species of non-corporeal energy beings who evolved past their physical bodies and who prefer to be left alone. In their case they have the power to enforce their will but are benevolent enough to try diplomatic means first when expressing their will and desires.

History

The Thasians are a race of non-corporeal beings with extremely powerful psychokinetic abilities, native to the planet Thasus. At once believed to be only a myth, Thasians were finally encountered by the Starship Enterprise in 2266.

In 2249, a ship crashed on Thasus, with a young boy, Charles Evans, the only survivor. The Thasians found Charlie and granted him their psychokinetic powers so that he could survive. In 2266, Charlie was rescued from Thasus and transferred aboard the Enterprise from the survey vessel Antares, for transportation to Colony 5, where he could be reunited with his closest living relatives.

The Thasians did not realize Charlie was gone until it was too late, however. Charlie's great psychokinetic powers, combined with his immaturity and petulance, made him a great threat to others he encountered. He took control of the Enterprise and even destroyed the Antares before the Thasians could intervene. Eventually, the Thasians did arrive, and were able to reverse all of the changes Charlie made aboard the Enterprise, but were unable to save the Antares.

Taking on his form of centuries previous, before the Thasians had evolved beyond the need for physical bodies, a Thasian appeared on the Enterprise bridge as a translucent, floating humanoid head. He apologized to the crew of the Enterprise for the havoc Charlie had wrought onboard, and for the destruction of the Antares, explaining that they had arrived to retrieve Charlie.

When Captain Kirk asserted that Charlie should remain amongst his own kind, the Thasian countered by stating that Charlie was too much of a danger, and that he could never be taught to cease the use of his powers. Reluctantly agreeing, Captain Kirk allowed the Thasians to take Charlie back to Thasus, despite Charlie's protestations.

Government

Due to the Federation Quarantine and the ages long lack of contact between the Thasians and any and all other species nothing is known about them and this area of interest.

Description

They are a race of non-corporeal, psionically powerful beings. They can appear as a translucent, floating humanoid head when they want to but it is unknown if their physical bodies that they no longer possess ever even looked humanoid.

Physiology

Since it is known that they no longer have a physical form and are essentially some kind of energy being the various Medical and Scientific experts who have reviewed the limited data available have come to the conclusion that this field of knowledge may not apply to them any more.

Technology

At this time it is unknown just how advanced they are or if they even need to rely any technology. Even the extent and degree of power they can generate is unknown.

Economy

It is unknown what form of internal economy they may have. What is known is that they have no outside contact and no trade with any other species. It is even unknown if they ever did have any off world trade as no documentation can be found to support this possibility.

Military

The Thasian ship was a space-faring vessel utilized by the non-corporeal Thasians. Apparently energy-based, the ship took on the appearance of an indistinct, green mass of light.
