|Native Species:||Scalosians (extinct)|
When the USS Enterprise was charting this quadrant, the starship picked up a distress call coming from an unknown world. A landing party discovered that the world was barren. There were no apparent animal lifeforms and sparse vegetation. According to the distress call, there were 900,000 Scalosians who lived in a nation; 113,000 of them in one city. Their civilization was rated 7 on the industrial scale.
After the world was devastated by volcanic eruptions that contaminated the water with radiation, the Scalosians became sterile and their numbers began dropping. When the planet was visited by the Starfleet vessel USS Enterprise, only five hyperaccelerated individuals remained. (TOS: "Wink of an Eye")
