Talaxians tended to be a whimsical race with a well developed sense of humor. They were usually very friendly, helpful and were willing to offer their services to anyone who required them.
The Talaxians were involved in a lengthy war with the Haakonian Order. The war was so costly to both sides that many Talaxians fled to other regions of the Delta Quadrant. The war between the Talaxians and the Haakonian’s ended in 2355 when the Metreon Cascade weapon was deployed on the Talaxian moon of Rinax, killing millions instantly. As a result the Talaxians declared an unconditional surrender.
