The Xenexians are a humanoid non-player race native to the independent planet Xenex, located in vicinity to the Romulan Star Empire. Xenexians are similar to Humans but have purple eyes. Some of them choose Human names when entering Starfleet Academy, which are easier to pronounce for aliens. (Star Trek: New Frontier)
The Xenexians were occupied by the Danteri for centuries until the freedom fighter Mackenzie Calhoun secured independence for his people. Calhoun joined Starfleet and became captain of two starships, the Excalibur and the Excalibur-A. The latest iteration, U.S.S. Excalibur, is the lead ship of the Excalibur class.
