The Lexlar are a warp-capable humanoid species. They are humanoid, with a slight ridging on their forehead. They had an oppressive government and a system of justice that, by the standards of Earth, was cruel, draconian and inhumane. In this system, once a person was convicted of a crime, the conviction could not be overturned, even if conclusive evidence that proved his innocence was uncovered. He would be sentenced to life in a brutal prison. There the prisoners were induced to kill each other through synaptic manipulation. Four Million Lexlar managed to escape from the persecution and journeyed to Earth space.
