The Tarkaleans are a humanoid species native to the planet Tarkalea.
They appear to have replicator technology - In the recreation facility of the alien repair station, T'pol
hand-scans "a matter-energy converter", which she concludes is "a molecular synthesizer of some
kind" (a replicator). She saw a similar device on a "Tarkalean" vessel prior to her assignment to Enterprise.
"Dead Stop" [ENT]
The Tarkaleans are well known for their special blend of Tarkalean
(DS9: "Past Prologue", "Cardassians", "The Wire", "Distant Voices",
"Hippocratic Oath", "Let He Who Is Without Sin...", "Trials and Tribble-ations",
"What You Leave Behind")
A Tarkalean freighter was attacked and boarded by the Borg. The Enterprise responded to the distress call,
discovering two Tarkaleans in the upper deck of the freighter. Dr. Phlox was able to initially assist the Tarkaleans;
however, he discovered that the Borg nanoprobes had infiltrated their autonomic systems and that their renal glands
were replaced with cybernetic devices. The Tarkaleans eventually succumbed to the Borg and one of the Tarkaleans
attacked and injected Phlox with nanoprobes. The Tarkaleans later escaped sickbay and attempted to modify the
systems of Enterprise, forcing Captain Archer to eject the two into space.
The Ferengi imposed an unfair six percent tariff on woolen goods they traded with the Karemma, claiming that
the tax was added to help offset the "lost income of Tarkalean sheep herders." (DS9: "Starship Down")
