The Vegans were a race of satyr-like humanoids from Vega, physically characterised by reddish-gold skin, hairy legs, large eyes and long noses. (TV: The Monster of Peladon) They had infrared vision and a powerful build, ideally suiting them to mining. (PROSE: Legacy) Philosophically, they were a very practical race who eschewed superstition and were quite happy to use the latest technology, rather than their own formidable strength, to clear a mine. (TV: The Monster of Peladon)

The entire race may have been given over to mining, at least according to the Vegans who were brought in to help mine Trisilicate on Peladon. (TV: The Monster of Peladon) This notion was seemingly confirmed by a Vegan sent in to help excavate the Diadem on Pakha. (PROSE: Legacy)

Vegans were very attuned to the physical world, and some believed that connection to be on a spirital level too. They had a venerable tradition of honour and respect for proper names. Geology was one of the fundamental skills of the Vegans. Vegan geology relied on a combination of science, mysticism, and ESP. Their religion was the Vega Viniculum, which taught them to believe in the soil, the ground, and the womb of life. It was their custom to bury their dead. Vegans crossed their arms across their chests with their splayed hands over each shoulder and each finger hooked, as a sign to ward off evil. (PROSE: Fear of the Dark)

Bandraginus Five was a Vegan shipyard. (PROSE: First Frontier)
