A female Benzite.

Benzites were a humanoid species from the planet of Benzar in the Beta Quadrant.

Benzites are characterised by their blue skin and lack of body hair. Their skull has a thick protrusion extends down over the face, displaying a prominent nasal lobe and brow and two tendrils droop down from above the upper lip. Benzites evolved on a world that had a different atmosphere from the standard class M planet, which meant they required a respiration device when in a standard class M atmosphere. By the early 2370s the Benzites were able to overcome this and no longer required the respiration device. (TNG: "Coming of Age"; DS9: "The Ship")
