The Deltans are a fair race, typically bald, originating from the planet Delta IV. Deltans have healing abilities that manifest in the form of tactile contact. The Deltans are members of the United Federation of Planets. Starfleet activity is present on Delta IV, and Deltans must swear an oath of celibacy upon service in Starfleet. Deltans also have the ability to block pain in others by touch. However, this ability does not heal injuries.
In 2141, the ECS Horizon encountered a group of Deltans. Travis Mayweather, who was fifteen at the time, described them as very attractive and very open. His method of dealing with the feelings they engendered in him was exhaustive workouts in the gym, a method he returned to, and recommended to Lt. Malcolm Reed, while three Orion slave girls were "guests" aboard Enterprise NX-01.
One Deltan, Starfleet Lt. Ilia, made direct contact with the V'Ger entity when it approached Earth in 2271 and has been listed as missing ever since.

Deltan pheromones are a potent aphrodisiac to most humanoid races. The effect can be diminished by the use of chemical applications.
Deltan's have a natural empathy with other humanoid species, allowing them to easily sense their emotions. They are even powerful enough to use this ability to deliver medical assistance by absorbing and minimizing pain in humanoid life forms. Deltan can use this as a form of anesthesia as well, giving them a +2D on any First Aid or Medical rolls on humanoid species.
Deltans must swear an oath of celibacy before being allowed to serve on any facility or vessel that employs other humanoids.
History in the Kilb-iverse:
The Deltans are a force sensitive race that the Emperor all but committed genocide on. They are a peaceful, loving race and the power of the Empire was brought to bare on them. Few Deltans lived through the attacks and they are no scattered across the galaxy. Most of them have gone into some medical profession do to their innate abilities in that field.
