The Sikarians were the humanoid inhabitants of the planet Sikaris in the Delta Quadrant.

They were remarkably pleasure-oriented people, who also found great pleasure in bringing pleasure to guests. This made them legendary for their hospitality.

In fact, they were mostly interested in the new and different, quickly growing bored with any particular person or activity.

Stories were an important part of their culture. More than entertainment, they seemed to be a measuring rod of values and beliefs. They believed stories to be an essential part of every person's being, and would not retell them without permission from those who told them to them.

The Sikarians were a technologically advanced race, having produced unusual technologies like their atmospheric sensor, and the spatial trajector, which could instantaneously transport a person up to forty thousand light years.

In 2371 the USS Voyager attempted to purchase this technology but was turned down. A secret exchange was made anyway but the trajector matrix turned out to be incompatible with Federation technology due to it emitting antineutrinos. (VOY: "Prime Factors")

Initially, the Sikarians were one of three alien species, along with the Kazon and the Vidiians, that the writing team of Star Trek: Voyager planned, in the series' first season, to feature as recurring, antagonistic aliens. However, only the latter two succeeded this expectation. (Captains' Logs Supplemental - The Unauthorized Guide to the New Trek Voyages, p. 127)
