Rasiinian, The Muse

Runepp, a Rasiinian ambassador.

The Rasiinians were a spacefaring humanoid species characterized by wrinkled blue skin and a bony exoskeleton covering their face.

In 2372, Ambassador Runepp traveled to Deep Space 9 aboard a Bajoran transport. The mysterious Onaya also came to the station aboard the vessel. (DS9: "The Muse")

The Borg had encountered and assimilated Rasiinians prior to 2373, as indicated by the image of one which would later appear during one of Seven of Nine's guilt-induced hallucinations. (VOY: "Infinite Regress")

Rasiinian sketch-contest winner

Winning sketch of a Rasiinian.

The Rasiinian in "The Muse" was played by John Paul Lona. He won a guest spot on DS9 for designing the make-up of the Rasiinian species in the Playmates Toys' "Design-an-Alien" contest.

According to Lonas' winning entry, he described the Rasiinian as having "a boney exo-skeleton which covers his soft, wrinkled skin. His glowing eyes often give away his mood, both varying in intensity and color." (Star Trek: Communicator Issue 105)

Two other aliens have shown with bone plating on the face; they are an inhabitant of Nimbus III and an an inhabitant of or visitor to DS9.
