Ricar Liurai (pronounced /loo ri/) is a relative newcomer to the racing scene. With only two wins in eleven starts, Liurai is a long-shot in the Omicron/Dakkus Space Race.
Ricar Liurai is a joined Trill and a current Starfleet Marine officer. He took up racing against the wishes of the symbiosis commission, who argued that racing was a dangerous sport and and could lead to the death of the Liurai symbiont. He races part time, while maintaining his Starfleet career. Currently, Liurai holds the rank of Colonel, and commands the 23rd Fighter Group.
His racer, the Liu-rider, is equipped with a holographic co-pilot which is capable of both warp and impulse flight.
