Origin: unknown planet in the Gamma Quadrant. A humanoid race who live to pursue the Tosk in an endless life-and-death hunt, never contacted again after a single incident on DS9 in 2369 soon after the wormhole was discovered. They appeared to be reptiloid like the Tosk but with hair and a smoother face below the forehead. The Hunters breed and raise Tosk as a noble creature with but one purpose in life: to be hunted for sport. Ironically, the Hunters seemed much more dependent upon their high-tech weapons and body armor than the Tosk they have bred, who appeared to be endlessly resourceful.
