Tarchannen III

A Classs-M planet with non-sentient humanoid natives. The humanoids are visible only in ultraviolet light and reproduce with a parasitic DNA strand that transforms host bodies with genetic rewrites.

The planet is now quarantined with orbiting and surface warning beacons to prevent further humanoid loss of life after a UFP colony of 49 members was wiped out in 2362, along with three of the five-member away team from the U.S.S. Victory who investigated. The small settlement contained at least five modular buildings, some connected by enclosed walkways.
