The Xarantine were a spacefaring species near Klingon space. The Klingons considered the Xarantine to be "no match" for them.

In 2151, the Klingon vessel IKS Somraw raided a Xarantine outpost and looted Xarantine ale to celebrate the victory. However, unknown to the Klingons, the ale was poisoned. Falling ill and being damaged by an attacking Xarantine ship, the captain of the Somraw eventually decided to retreat into a Q'tahL class gas giant's atmosphere. (ENT: "Sleeping Dogs")


Background informationEdit

The plural name for multiple members of this species was scripted to consistently be "Xarantines". However, this clearly was slightly modified, with a combination of them not only referenced by that collective noun but also without the letter "s".

The Xarantine might possibly have hailed from the system around the star Xarantine.

The Xarantine are also mentioned in the Star Trek: A Time to... and Star Trek: Destiny novels.

The novel A Choice of Futures reveals the Xarantine to be the yellow-skinned race seen in ENT: "Broken Bow".

In Star Trek Online, a "Xarantine system" within a "Xarantine sector" is located along the Federation-Klingon border next to the Archanis sector.
