Betazoids are a race of telepathic humanoids native to the planet Betazed. Betazoids generally do not start developing their telepathic skills until puberty, when the rush of newly activated hormones serves to activate their previously latent telepathic talents. A very few Betazoids are born with the telepathic abilities, but they have to go through a very intensive psychological experience due to their inability to filter out the 'noise' created by 'normal' thought.

Because of their training in the schools of Betazed, Betazoids are rarely xenophobic, and can communicate with most any other race at their level.

With the exception of their telepathic abilities, the Betazoids are essentially similar to humans in all other respects.
