The Othans were a species from a planet located near the Romulan Star Empire's and Klingon Empire's borders.

The Othans were known to be an aggressive and temperamental species. They did not hesitate to utilise suicide attacks during battle.

They developed warp technology during the 22nd century but by the late-24th century they had a small empire. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 5: Starships of the Romulan Star Empire)
