KelvansKelvans - Inhabitants of the planet Kelva located in the distant Andromeda Galaxy on episode No. 50 "By Any Other Name" on the sci-fi series STAR TREK/NBC/1966-69. While on a return trip to their home planet, a group of Kelvans were shipwrecked. When the USS Enterprise arrived on the scene, the Kelvans commandeered the Federation vessel and continued on their three hundred year journey home.

To take control of the starship, the hijackers had to adopt human form. This transformation was their downfall, since their own bodies (tentacled creatures) lacked a sophisticated nervous system which prevented them from enjoying physical stimulation. The crew of the Enterprise used this fact to their advantage to stimulate them (via sex and drugs) into submission.

The Kelvans had seized control of the Enterprise by dehydrating all unnecessary crew members to the size of a small cubes which contained all their component chemicals. The crew was restored to their original form after Captain Kirk regained control of his starship.
