The Nikto (Second Human Empire: ?) were a reptilian humanoid species from the planet Kintan in the Si'Klaata Cluster with many subspecies. They were all reptilian humanoids that were noted for their leathery skin with an average adult standing 1.8 meters tall. Sometimes these were covered in spikes and horns. The species held a limited range of facial expressions that was because they lacked the necessary anatomical infrastructure. Most Nikto had cold black obsidian eyes. These were sometimes covered by a protective membrane. This took the form of a thin transparent pellicle that protected their eyes underwater and during windstorms. As a result, they were noted for their "staring" eyes and a seemingly blank expression which led to many underestimating Nikto intelligence. The Nikto joined the Axis of Empires and the Coalition of Independent States.
