Noophians are a sapient extraterrestrial race which doesn't share Humans' appreciation of antiquities and historical heritage. To quote Dr. Soong, "If you brought a Noophian to Earth he'd look around and say, 'Tear that old village down. It's hanging in rags. Build me something new, something efficient.'". Another species that shares this same attitude are the Nasat.
- Noophians were mentioned in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Brothers". No known member of this race has ever made an appearance in the series and nothing else is known about them.
