A Klingon protectorate, the Valtese and the Kriosians were once at war, a long-standing feud over a female empathic metamorph, and only recently resolved relations (metaphorically enough, involving the marriage of a female empathic metamorph to the leader of Valt).

Appearing similar to Trill, with slightly dissimilar spots, the Valtese have a pragmatic and straightforward approach to life, while the Kriosian way is one steeped in ancient ritual and rite.

The Valtese are the more pragmatic of the two ‘brother’ races. A culture that is strongly entwined in the Klingon mercantile and industrial matters, the Valtese pride themselves on their straightforward ‘aim at the goal and go there’ manner. As a result, they are often seen as somewhat stiff, colorless, humorless, and boring. While this is an unfair characterization, they do tend to come off as detached and short while speaking with other civilizations. However, among their own, they have a quiet depth when dealing with each other, and have truly loving families.
