Hi, a little busy today so just a quick post.
Star Trek month continues, voting still on for next month (see the “Polls” tab above). Last of the aliens (maybe).
Deltans from the planet Delta IV. Identified by their bald scalps, they have pain-relieving abilities that manifest during physical contact. This ability ease pain, but does not increase healing. Deltans believe most species, particularly Humans, to be a sexually immature and because of their high sexuality, Deltans, have to swear an oath of celibacy upon entering service in Starfleet.
Trivia- the Deltans were first to be a part of the failed Star Trek: Phase II series that was past in favor of making Star Trek: The Motion Picture; which feature Lt. Ilia, a Deltan, portrayed by actress/model Persis Khambatta. Persis actually shaved her head for the role of Ilia in the film (no poorly fitting skullcaps here). At first, she shed tears over the haircut, but smiled after the finishing powder was applied to her scalp and her facial features were more defined by makeup artist Fred Phillips.
