Species of characteristically heavyset and technologically advanced humanoids. Although initial contact with the Enterprise-D in 2365 suggested the Pakleds had limited intellectual capacities, this was found to be untrue, and the Pakleds further demonstrated considerable cunning in attempting to capture Enterprise-D engineer Geordi La Forge (Samaritan Snare -TNG). Pakled interests owned a magnesite ore mine on planet Kalla III. In 2370, the Duras sisters illegally mined the deposit without the Pakleds' knowledge (Firstborn -TNG). A Pakled spacecraft rescued Lore after he was transported into space in 2364. Subsequently he adopted traditional Pakled clothing styles (Brothers -TNG).
