Xenex is a Class-M planet in sector 221-H, home to the very proud Xenexian people. The
planet was conquered and occupied by the Danteri, a neighbouring space-faring civilisation in
2053, this occupation was shattered in 2353, with Captain Picard and Commander Crusher of
the Federation Starship USS Stargazer acting as intermediaries. After their revolution, the
Xenexians were ruled by power-loving and self-serving men such as D'ndai, brother of
By 2373, Xenex was free in name only, the Danteri had made many political inroads with the
planets ruling citizens, and in-effect still kept a tight grip of control on the planet.
Xenexians are a bronze skinned, fiercely proud and independent people, the eyes are the
biggest difference between Humans and Xenexians, as a native Xenexian will have very
brightly coloured eyes. Mackenzie Calhoun himself has violet coloured eyes. Xenexians are
considered adults at the age of thirteen, when they undergo a vision-quest brought about by
wandering into a barren place and going without food or water, this is said to induce a vision
that will show the Xenexian youth what path their future holds. Any that wish are free to leave
the planet, although it is quite rare...
To date only one Xenexian has joined Starfleet. Captain Mackenzie Calhoun of the Starship
Excalibur (although Mackenzie Calhoun isn't his real name, merely a 'humanisation' his actual
name pronounciation is; M'k'n'zy of Calhoun).
Coming from the planet Xenex, a planet that, like Bajor, has been split by war, although their
planet was occupied for hundreds of years... M'k'n'zy was a rebel leader, who in his teenage
years led his people to freedom from their Danteri Oppressors. It is unknown what effect the
exploits of on of the planets most famous citizens will have on the population as a whole,
however diplomatic and trade ties have strengthened and it is hoped that Xenex will one day
make the transition from Ally to member world of the UFP
