- Not enough about this race is known to justify it as a player race.
- The fact that space travel is traumatic for them, makes them an undesirable race to play.
A civilization of fishlike humanoids from planet Antede III. Antedeans find spaceflight extremely traumatic and survive the ordeal by entering a self-induced catatonic state. Upon revival at the end of a voyage, Antedeans require large amounts of food to replenish their bodies. (Manhunt -TNG).
Star Trek: The Encyclopedia (1999 Edition).
Planet: Antide III.
Ichthyohumanoid species which are fish-like in appearance and have purplish-silver scales.
The natives of Antede III have been seen by very few humans. Their preferred method of
dealing with the trauma of space travel is a self-induced catatonic state, during which
they can rest standing up. Their half-shut eyes fully open upon awakening, a process that
takes several hours. They then proceed to eat large quantities of vermicula . On stardate
42859.2, several Antideans were revealed by Ambassador Lwaxana Troi to be conspiratory
assassins bent on sabotaging their planet's Federation membership conference on Pacifica.
