Technologically advanced humanoid civilization.  The J'naii culturally suppressed their sexual differentiation, having evolved beyond the need for separate secual genders, and reproduced by incubating their young in fibrous husks inseminated by both parents.  Sexual liaisons were strictly forbidden under J'naii law.  There were, however, some J'naii who retained the leanings toward gender, some male and some female.  These J'naii lived in fear of being discovered and  of being forced by the government to undergo psychotectic therapy.  The J'naii government requested Starfleet assistance in locating a shuttle vehicle lost in their star system, in 2368.  The Enterprise-D provided equipment and personnel for the successful rescue mission.  During the rescue, a diplomatic incident was narrowly averted when a J'naii individual named Soren became romantically involved with Commander William Riker (The Outcast -TNG).
