The Kovaalans are a humanoid species native to the planet Gromahk.
They are a mostly patriarchal society, with polygamy being the most acceptable form of marriage. This reason is because of the effects of biological weapons used by the Kovaalan in a civil war on their homeworld which all but sterilized their people. The Kovaalan are also known to have strong trade agreements with the Terran Federation as well as a contract passed by the Senate of the Terran Federation to attempt to cure their genetic sterility.
One of their most popular exports in a drink known as Peetcha.
