The Qieg language was spoken by the Qieg, an insectoid race native to the planet Lan Barell. It consisted of clicks and chirps, and included elements of body language such as mandible motions and the waving of antennae. When communicating with non-Qieg, they wore electronic masks that were capable of reproducing the vocal range of the Human voice box. In the Qieg language, "Qiemal" meant "First Nest."
