The Cairn are a telepathic humanoid race. They have no form of vocal language, instead preferring to communi-cate with others telepathically through the sending of images and thoughts, of which they are notably skilled. The Cairn are capable of spaceflight, and they have just recently achieved warp capability. Although they have a great desire to form relations with other races, this is complicated by their inability to understand and utilize vocal com-munication.
The Cairn Diplomatic Scholars are capable of communicating complex thoughts and ideas via telepathic thought-transference. If our own diplomats are willing to listen - and learn - they can be taught how to more productively conduct themselves in the diplomatic arena.
