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.

The Tarkaleans are well known for their special blend of Tarkalean tea.

    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")

    A Tarkalean was stabbed in Quark's by the older Molly O'Brien, because he got in her way as she was
    trying to escape after being forced out of the holosuite. He soon recovered, but wasn't interested in
    "excuses" and filed charges against her for assault with a deadly weapon. (The alien was actually a Markalian -
    Perhaps Sisko was mistaken when he called him a Tarkalean)
