The Axanarri are a humanoid species native to the planet Axanar, located in the Beta Quadrant. They are known to be androgynous, to prefer a nitrogen-methane atmosphere, and to produce triglobulin from their zymuth gland. A typical Axanarri lifespan exceeds 400 years.
- Conflict note: In materials developed by FASA for its RPG, the Axanarri were preindustrial humanoids with some genetic similarities to Klingons whose culture had been contaminated by an early (and inexperienced) first contact by the crew of the UNSS Bonaventure.
- Conflict note: In materials developed by LUG for its RPG, the Axanarri were tall humanoids with varying complexions; a fine whitish, dustlike secretion covers their skin and protects them from the high radiation levels of their homeworld. Axanari body and hair comes in an array of bright colors unknown to the Human head; violet electric blue, Kelly green, fire-engine red, and orange-peel orange. Head hair is long and thick, allowing Axanari to twist and braid it into tall, sculpted castles of hair. Perhaps by contrast, they wear long, plainly decorated robes.
First contact between humans and the Axanarri occured in 2151, when the crew of the Enterprise (NX-01) encountered an Axanarri vessel following an attack by an unknown species on an Axanarri vessel. The unidentified assailants were "harvesting" triglobulin from the ship's crew. The Axanarri originally suspected that the Enterprise crew were responsible for the attack, but Ensign Hoshi Sato was able to communicate the truth to them. (ENT episode: "Fight or Flight").
The year 2222 saw the Axanarri create a new propulsion system. This system was a "'single shot' interstellar drive." (ST roleplay module: All Our Yesterdays: The Time Travel Sourcebook))
In 2251, the Klingon Empire attempted to occupy Axanar and make the Axanarri into a subject race. Fortunately, Captain Garth of Izar led a Starfleet task force to defeat the Klingons at the Battle of Axanar. Shortly after, Captain Rollin Bannock led the Axanar Peace Mission to smooth over relations with the Axanarri and help them get back on their feet. (TOS novel: My Brother's Keeper: Republic).
- The LUG Star Trek roleplaying book All Our Yesterdays: The Time Travel Sourcebook gives the spelling of the species name as Axanari (with only one r).
