The Lurg are a hostile race that the New Alliance of Free Stars encountered in the mid-2160s.  Very little is known about them except for the fact that they are guarding an artifact or relic of some kind that was made by the Precursors in the Beta Naos system.


Their history is mostly a mystery, but it is known that they have known about the Mycon for about 1000 years. At some point about 1000 years ago (c. 1160s CE) they apparently convinced the Mycon not to attack and destroy the Earthlings when the Earthlings were less technologically advanced and had not yet begun exploring space. So had the Lurg let the Mycon destroy the Earth surely the Earthlings would have been destroyed in much the same way that the Syreen home-world of Syra that had been destroyed by the Mycon in the 21st Century. The Lurg also did not get slave shielded by the Ur-Quan Kzer-Za during the Great War. They were apparently ignored by them for some as yet unknown reason. Also the Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah did not destroy this species either. When the New Alliance of Free Stars encountered this alien they are also continuing to fight the Kohr-Ah as well in the mid-2160s decade.

Humanity meets the Lurg

It remains unclear if the Kohr-Ah are allied to the Lurg or if the two races are at war with each other. As it's widely known that the Kohr-Ah have always been solitary hunters like their ancestors in what would be Earth's prehistoric times, it would be very significant if it turns out that for the first time in the Kohr-Ah's history they actually have made an alliance of some kind. But regardless the Lurg and the Kohr-Ah both remain as potential threats to the Earthlings and their Alliance.



  • The name Lurg is also a name that some people of the Utwig species can have.
  • Given hints from the Lurg themselves, they may be another extension of the powerful Them or Eternal Ones.
