New earth primate

An alien primate

The New Earth primate was an intelligent but non-sentient primate species native to the planet called "New Earth."

Kathryn Janeway attempted to communicate with the primate during her brief stay on the planet in 2372. (VOY: "Resolutions")

Alan Sims was responsible for casting this primate. When the script called from an alien primate, Sims found a spider monkey which, on command, could walk on its hind legs with its tail erect. "At first Rick Berman just laughed. He couldn't believe that a spider monkey – which you could find in any zoo – would look convincingly alien. But when I showed him photographs of what the monkey could do, he said, 'That looks alien enough to me. Book him!'" (Star Trek 30 Years, pg. 46)
