Taluno was a male Bajoran and Kai of Bajor in the 22nd century.

Taluno's ship was "almost swallowed by the heavens" near the Denorios belt in the 22nd century. His story helped Benjamin Sisko and Jadzia Dax locate the Bajoran wormhole in 2369. (DS9: "Emissary")

The Star Trek Chronology (? ed., p. ?) states that this event took place in 2133. Excised dialogue established that one of the Dax hosts met Taluno. This Dax encountered Taluno at a peace conference when the host was an apprentice diplomat and Jadzia Dax recalled him as "dour and dogmatic" and thought that Taluno was not given to exaggeration. (Trek: The Unauthorized, Behind-the-Scenes Story of Deep Space Nine, p 111) The lines were retained in the novelization of Emissary.
According to the script, Taluno was pronounced as "tah-LOO-noh".
