The Rhaandarites are a long-lived, androgynous humanoid race native to Rhaandarel noted for their prominent forehead lobes, as well as being well-suited for taking orders -- more so than for giving them. Rhaandarites have a lifespan of several centuries and have a very complex social structure. While not well-known, most Rhaandarites in Starfleet service are considered "slow learners " or "problem cases" on their homeworld, and are thought to benefit from Starfleet's "simple" heirarchy. (TOS novel: Ex Machina, DTI novel: Watching the Clock)
- The race's name originates from backstage notes for Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The script mentions "high-domed Vegans", and the name "Vegan" was originally used on drawings of the Rhaandarite costuming and makeup designs before the new species name was confirmed.
