Intelligent humanoid life-forms.  Some Nausicaans have earned a reputation for being surly, ill-tempered, quick to violence, and very tall.  In 2327, just after his graduation from Starfleet Academy, Ensign Jean-Luc Picard was involved in a fight with three Nausicaans while on leave at Starbase Earhart.  One Nausicaan stabbed Picard through the heart, severely injuring the young ensign, who required cardiac replacement surgery (Samaritan Snare -TNG).  Many years later, Picard relived the incident through Q's intervention (Tapestry -TNG).  In 2371, a band of Nausicaan raiders used an ultrasonic generator to break into and rob the central museum on Remmil VI (heart of Stone -DS9).  Later that year, Garak said he misplaced the wedding suit of a Nausicaan, making the Nausicaan angry with Garak (Improbable Cause -DS9).  In 2372, two Nausicaan bodyguards accompanied FCA Liquidator Brunt to Deep Space 9 to investigate a Ferengi labor union that was striking against Quark's bar.  The bodyguards severely beat Quark in order to intimidate Rom into ending the strike (Bar Association -DS9).

Humanoid spacefaring society.  In late 2374, Quark made a profit of 200 bars of gold-pressed latinum when he sold Denevan crystals to a Nausicaan entrepreneur (The Sound of Her Voice -DS9).
