Neks are powerfully built predators from the planet Cyborrea. They are short, squat creatures, generally canine in appearance. Each of a Nek's four legs end in three sharp claws, and its mouth is huge, lined with remarkably long, sharp teeth that enable it to take massive bites. Neks typically hunt in packs of three to six, dominated by the largest and most aggressive Nek. A pack of Neks is powerful enough to take on the largest and most dangerous prey, such as the Kundana of Rutan.

Because of their ill temper and aggressiveness, Neks are used as living weapons by a variety of Species. These Neks are raised in special kennels where they are taught to obey the commands of trainers brave or foolish enough to get close to the aggressive beasts. Domesticated Neks are fitted with Advanced Cybernetics and Armor, making them both easier to control and considerably more difficult to take down. Most are also equipped with Comlinks that enable them to hear the commands of their owners. The Nek described below represents a trained and modified specimen.
