Cygnans are a humanoid race with violet skin and golden hair, and a semi-prehensile tail. They are a matriarchal society – males are only semi-intelligent and are rarely ever seen off-world. Cygnan females are uncommon in Starfleet.

Cygnans are renowned as software engineers, especially in the field of artificial intelligence. They believe that computer systems should emulate humanoid personalities and regard standard interface systems are terribly impersonal. In 2267, the USS Enterprise computer was upgraded by a Cygnan team, who gave the computer a flirtatious female persona.

Cygnans were referred to by name in Classic Star Trek, but were not definitively shown – I have chosen to regard a race which appeared aboard the USS Enterprise in the episode Journey to Babel as being Cygnans (this species also closely resembles the character of Trance Gemini in the series Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda). This write-up is loosely based on the Prime Directive game statistics.
