Humanoid civilization native to the planet Talax in the Delta Quadrant.  The Talaxians surrendered to the Haakonian Order in 2356 after a decade-long war was ended by the deployment of the metreon cascade, a deadly weapon that killed over 300,000 Talaxians on Rinax.  Talaxians who came in contact with the fallout from the metreon cascade suffered metrmia, a deadly blood disease (Jetrel -VGR).  The Talaxian respiratory system is directly linked to multiple points along the spinal column (Phage -VGR).  It is a tradition in Talaxian society to share the history of a meal before eating.  It was seen as a way of enhancing the culinary experience (Flashback -VGR).
