For the race of a similar name, please see Noophian.

The Nuvians were a race of humanoids with twelve fingers on each hand.

Nuvian hand

There were over two hundred registered Nuvian masseuses on Risa in the 2150s. (ENT: "Fallen Hero") Zjod, a merchant of female slave, had a Nuvian concubine for sale in his shop. (ENT: "Rajiin")

In the final draft script of "Rajiin", the appearance of a Nuvian was described as "particularly alien-looking".
Before the episode "Rajiin" established "Nuvians" to be a specific species, the reference to Nuvian masseuses on Risa in "Fallen Hero" was misinterpreted by the non-canon reference book Star Trek: Star Charts, which lists the city of "Nuvia" as the capital of Risa.
