The Husnock are a humanoid species. Their distinguishing features are a series of delicate ridges over the eyebrows and down the bridge of the nose. The are organized in the Xenophobic Husnock Imperium. They especially harbor a deep mistrust of telepaths and every "gaharey" (outsider) starship that passes through their space is meticulously searched. Their relationships with the humans were strained when a human ship was transporting 10,000 "traitors" and 6,000 Telepaths.
