Planet: Chalna. A violent-natured, beast-like race with long fangs. The people live in anarchy and are carnivorous, even feasting on enemies. A native, Esoqq, is one of Captain Picard's two authentic fellow hostages abducted by aliens who want to study their styles of authority and leadership. Esoqq knows of the Mizarians but not the Bolians. The meal patty given the hostages is poisonous to Esoqq, who can go no more than 3 or 4 days without eating.
