Archer meets an alien named Garos on the Akaali homeworld who claims
to be a Malurian.
The following information is based on the assumption that he was and is a representative of the Malurian race:
Appearance - Archer stuns an
alien and peels off a mask to reveal bumpy grey reptilian skin.
Language - The alien GUIs have a
black background with yellow, grey-green, and blue graphics. The
of letters with a predominantly triangular form (horizontals, verticals, 60-degree diagonals, but no curves or diacritical
dots), and is written in horizontal lines. Three font sizes are visible. Archer does *not* intuitively understand the alien
symbology of the controls, and can't decide which button shuts off the "dampening field" around the shop: blue or
yellow? Yet Archer didn't seem to have a problem with the combinations on the Malurian remote control for the doors.
History - The Malurian planet of
4 billion inhabitants was destroyed in 2267 by the malfunctioning Nomad
The Malurians were being studied by a Federation Science team headed by Dr. Manway at the time.
