The Nizhrak'a were a low density species native to the gas-giant Nizhara. In their natural state, Nizhrak'a are essentially living gas clouds.
Jiterica, who hoped that her membership in Starfleet would eventually lead to her people joining the Federation, was forced to spend her duty hours in an uncomfortable containment suit. The suit, which simulated human form and voice, enabled Jiterica to interact with the other members of the Stargazer's crew.
JIterica engaged in a not-quite romantic relationship with human, Ensign Cole Paris after he accidentally walked into her- literally; she had temporarily left her containment suit- while inside her quarters and felt an incredible feeling while inside her. He acknowledged from the beginning that such a relationship wouldn't be easy, but was interested in at least trying to make it work. In the novel Maker, Paris becomes jealous of the attention given to Jiterica by Stave, a powerful visitor, but after Stave's departure they renew their friendship.
