Haliians were a sentient, humanoid species. Several Haliians served in Federation Starfleet.

Physiology

Externally, Haliians were distinguished by a slight bulge and indentation above each eyebrow and a crevice between the brows, on the bridge of the nose.

The Haliians were a telepathic species, although they were limited to person to person empathy. A special crystal called a canar, when held by an Haliian, had the potential to greatly increase their telepathic abilities and allow them to "bond" with others and share their thoughts. (TNG: "Aquiel")

Culture

They also drank a type of beverage known as Muskan seed punch. (TNG: "Aquiel")
