You may also be looking for a group of primitive humanoids who referred to themselves as the Takarians.

The Takarans are a humanoid species native to the planet Takara.

Takarans are characterized by an unusual anatomy, where their internal organs are not as distinct as those of most humanoids – their organ systems are much more evenly distributed around their bodies, resulting in Takarans having a very high resistance to injury. Takarans also have voluntary control over their own physiology down to a cellular level, and can place themselves in a form of stasis resembling death.

To Starfleet medical equipment, only the rate of cellular decay could verify whether a Takaran was dead or alive – a slow rate of cellular decay was indicative of a Takaran in voluntary stasis; the rate of cellular decay would be much faster if the Takaran were truly dead – this was unknown to Doctor Beverly Crusher until 2369.

Takarans are also able to put only a part of their body in stasis at a time, enabling them to slow injury in specific areas and thereby reduce the overall effects of the injury.


  • Internal organs are distributed evenly around the body
  • Tissue regeneration is highly elevated
  • Skin is thicker than the average humanoid's
    • (This thicker skin results in a high injury resistance)
  • Voluntary control over their own physiology
    • (This enables this species to put a part of their body in stasis)
    • Can put their whole body in stasis to a point that resembled death
