Campaign of the Month: January 2012
Star Trek Late Night
Gallamites are short, averaging only 1.6m in height, and slender, massing 50kg. They have a slightly greenish cast to their amber skin. The hand has four digits, three long slender fingers and an opposable thumb. The eyes are somewhat larger than Humans, and have an epicanthic fold similar to Eastern Asian Humans. The ears are small and pointed like those of a Vulcan. The most distinguishing feature, however, is the fact that the cranium is transparent, and the brain is twice the size of a Human brain. Some races feel a mild atavistic discomfort at seeing a living brain pulsing inside the cranium, and some Gallamites wear a close-fitting hood-like garment to avoid making others uncomfortable.
Gallamite culture is quiet and contemplative for the most part. Gallamites excel in the sciences, having a natural affinity for mathematics. Although not as well known as the Vulcan Science Academy or the Daystrom Institute, the Campus of Mathematical and Analytical Arts on Gallam II is widely respected in scientific circles.

Gallamites are only mentioned a couple of times in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Captain Boday was a friend of Jadzia Dax, an association continued by Ezri Dax. Some officers expressed a faint discomfort with his appearance. The only description we are given is that the Gallamite cranium is transparent and the brain is twice the size of a Human brain.
