Memory Beta, the wiki for licensed Star Trek content.

The Beta Promethean people come from the Beta Promethean system. They are short and pear shaped with four tentacle legs and two arms. As a people the are largely isolationist and have business ethics much like the Ferengi. They control all three planets in their system (Beta Prometheus 1, Beta Prometheus 2 and Beta Prometheus 3). They trade large amounts of dilithium with other species.

Around 2244 they were invited to join the United Federation of Planets, but they declined.

In 2294, a small group of Beta Promethean pirates kidnapped eleven officers from the USS Excelsior. Klingon interference with the local political process had created a large amount of ant-Federation rhetoric. Captain James T. Kirk and the former senior officers of the Enterprise were able to successfully rescue all but one of the hostages taken by the Prometheans - the remaining hostage - Spiros Focus - had been executed by the Klingons. (TOS novel: The Fearful Summons)

The book jacket text of the novel calls the Beta Prometheans "Thraxian", a name only included in that one mention, possibly deriving from an earlier draft of the story.
