One of two quarreling races from the Beta Renna system, Anticans are marked by their canine-like faces, leathery skin and enlarged rear craniums. Although mostly bald, they have shaggy sideburns, mustaches and eyebrows that descend into long streams.
They are carnivorous, demanding fresh live meat for almost every meal. They went hunting for arch-enemy, the Selay, with looped weapons during their U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D trip. They call the humans' use of materialized meat barbaric and emit a continuous raspy, breathy sound.
Though not currently a Federation member, the species has been involved in interstellar travel for some time, at least since the 2320s.
