The Selay were a reptilian species of humanoid that are native to the planet Selay, located in the Beta Renner star system. For centuries, the Selay have been rivals with another species from their system, the Anticans.
Contact between the Selay and the Federation had existed for many years prior to the 2360s. A lone Selay was a patron at the Bonestell Recreation Facility on Starbase Earhart in 2327. (TNG episode: "Tapestry")
In 2364, the USS Enterprise was assigned to carry delegations from both the Selay and Anticans races to a peace conference on Parliament, as part of the ongoing process to review both species' request for Federation membership. The effort was a disaster, as one of the Selay was killed by an Antican aboard the Enterprise. (TNG episode: "Lonely Among Us")
