The Semblance of Draxyx

Arcturans were a species of aliens which resembled a skull with tendrils spreading out. In order to survive outside their own planet, they require life support systems. The most vital system is the helium regenerator. (DW: The Curse of Peladon) These systems would range from simple boxes with a necessary equipment to advanced systems capable of travelling and surviving nearly anywhere. Though the Arcturans knew of the Doctor, records of him were scarce. (NSA: The Doctor Trap)

The Semblance of Draxyx was an Arcturan and a member of the Endangered Dangerous Species Society. He was one of the member who arrived and was killed on Planet 1. (NSA: The Doctor Trap) During Peladon's entry into the Galactic Federation, the Arcturan delegate, Arcturus, betrayed the other ambassadors. (DW: The Curse of Peladon)

An Arcturian in 2273

The Arcturan, or Arcturians were a humanoid species native to Arcturus IV in the Arcturus star system.

The Arcturans had translucent, chalk-white or reddish-gray skin, which formed heavy folds on their foreheads. They had large earlobes and small amounts of platinum hair. Arcturan native dress included a leather-and-fur tunic. (TOS reference: The Making of Star Trek: The Motion Picture; TOS novel: The Lost Years)

They were anarchical, lacking a government, though were also a militaristic race, with over 100 billion inhabitants spread across the system. Most Arcturans lacked a formal education, the majority spoke numerous languages, including Klingonese, Romulan language, and Standard, albeit with their own unique pidgin grammar. It was said that money was the language they understood best. (TOS novel: The Lost Years; TOS reference: The Making of Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

They regarded Klingons, Humans, and Romulans with equal contempt, though by the 23rd century the Arcturians were members of the United Federation of Planets. (TOS novel: The Lost Years; TOS reference: The Making of Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

In 2254 rogue Arcturans joined a Klingon backed brigand of Orion, Khodini and renegade Humans who attacked Starbase 13 in retaliation against Starfleet’s Project Pharos, a scheme to bring order to the Marrat Nebula region by building a giant galactic lighthouse. (EV comic: "The Fires of Pharos")

Arcturan hongua is a favoured ingredient in Sundowners. (EV comic: "Our Dearest Blood")
