Xaraxians are an hairless reptilian species with a humanoid stature. Like Saurians, their females possess mammalian features such as a pair of breasts. The lower portion of Xaraxian faces resemble the Saurian's, too. The nose bridge is wider compared to common humanoid, hence the eyes are positioned further away from each other. In addition, the irises are dark grey and cover the entire eyeballs. Coral like ears are attached to the side of the head and the forehead features vertical ridges running parallel from the front part of the head down to the pronounced eyebrows. The skin is pale green but as only one member of this species is known, Xaraxians may feature much more diversity in skin colors.
First contact between the Xaraxians and the United Federation of Planets was established in 2406 when they were visited by the USS Stargazer-A. The Xaraxians felt intrigued by the prospect of a political entity striving for peace instead of conquest.
Following the initiation of formal relations between the two governments, the Federation Science Council offered scientists work at Memory Alpha. The Xaraxian Congress chose Zara Dren as one of their envoys and she gladly accepted the position. (STO mission: "Scientific Mandate")
