Elaan, Dohlman of Elas in 2268

The Dohlman of Elas was a royal title of great privilege and prerogative, held in high regard by the Elasians, however, the position did have to answer to the Elasian Council of Nobles. The proper honorific in addressing her was "Your Glory."

Elaan held the title of Dohlman in 2268. Her arranged marriage to the ruler of Troyius was hoped to foster peace between the two civilizations.

Petri, a Troyian ambassador, referred to the Dohlman as "The thing most feared and hated by my people. Our most deadly enemy." (TOS: "Elaan of Troyius")

Montgomery Scott mentioned the Dohlman when expressing his awe in face of the unexpected luxurious quarters aboard the USS Enterprise-D in 2369, recalling that particular Dohlman, Elaan, complaining about her quarters aboard the original USS Enterprise. (TNG: "Relics")

As evidenced by the first draft script of "Relics", this reference to the Dohlman was originally to have been a reference to "a group of delegates" who were traveling to the Babel Conference and about whom Scott remarked, "You never heard so much whining and complaining from grown men and women in your life." The Dohlman was instead referenced by the time the final draft of the script was issued. [1]
