The Iorathite were a humanoid species native to Iorath in the Gamma Quadrant. (Star Trek: The Farthest Star)

The Iorathites distinctive feature was had a hairless ridge on their heads. It started above their eyes and ran towards their ears and then vertical up along their hair line to their scalp. It then ran horizontally to encircle the back of their heads.

The Iorathites government was known as the National Assembly of Iorath. It was headed by a High Minister.

By 2369 the Iorathites were spacefaring, but had not expanded beyond their home system.

In the same year they made first contact with both the Dominion and the United Federation of Planets. ("To Seek and to Be Found")
