The Kaelons were a humanoid race native to the planet Kaelon II.

In Kaelon society, individuals committed ritual suicide at the age of 60, in a ceremony called the Resolution attended by their friends and family. Kaelon scientist Doctor Timicin attempted to avoid this fate in 2367 at the urging of Lwaxana Troi, in order to continue his work to revitalize the Kaelon sun. However, he reversed his decision to avoid the social stigma that would have fallen on his family. (TNG episode: "Half a Life")
