The Napeans were a partially empathic species from the Alpha or Beta Quadrant. Their physical appearance was similar to most humanoids except for their large, leaf-shaped forehead ridge.

Starfleet Lieutenant Daniel Kwan was a half-Human and half-Napean hybrid. (TNG: "Eye of the Beholder")

A crewmember serving on board the Nebula-class USS Lexington was also of Napean descent. (DS9: "Explorers")

Another Napean was part of Kasidy Yates' crew aboard the SS Xhosa. (DS9: "Family Business")

A Napean lieutenant was serving as a security officer on the USS Cerritos in 2380. (LD: "Envoys", "Temporal Edict", "Much Ado About Boimler")

According to Daniel Kwan's personnel file seen in the episode, Daniel Kwan was a native of Psi Upsilon IV.
Napeans have appeared in several novels and in the video game Star Trek: Elite Force II, where a Napean is the chief of security for Starfleet Academy.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts ("United Federation of Planets I"), there was a Federation member world named Napea, which might possibly be the planet of origin for this species.
