Leoniders (леонидяне) are a fictional alien race from the Noon Universe created by the Strugatsky brothers. Their homeworld is Leonida (Леонида), a planet discovered in 2133 AD by Leonid Gorbovsky.

Leoniders are mentioned in "Noon: 22nd Century", "An Attempt to Escape" and "Beetle in an Anthill".

Appearance[edit]

Leoniders are humanoids like humans but somewhat smaller.

Technological advancement[edit]

The term "technological advancеment" is not very appropriate to Leoniders since their "technology" is very different from humanity's. It is known, for example, that they live in a perfect symbiosis with major forms of flora and fauna of Leonida.

Leoniders and Humans[edit]

No data available despite the continuous diplomatic contact between Leonida and Earth.
