The Shadow Surgeons were a sentient humanoid race that once served the Shadows.
Serving their masters as medical technicians, they were known to have prepared sentient beings with cyberweb implants in order to install them as living CPU's in Shadow Vessels, as well as examined potential hosts for Drakh Keepers.
In 2260, a group of 100 human telepaths were delivered to these aliens to be subjected to the procedure for piloting Shadow vessels. Another of this race piloted the transport to take them back to Earth, however, the alien killed itself when the transport was captured by John Sheridan in a White Star.Following the departure of the Shadows after the Shadow War, this species remained allied with the Drakh, another race that were allied with the Shadows. They followed them to Centauri Prime and hid inside the many forgotten secret passages within and beneath the Centauri Royal Palace.
- The name "Shadow Surgeons" is purely a descriptor as no official name for this race has ever been given in a canon source.
- This species looks similar to, but is distinct from, both the Streib and the Vree (members of the League of Non-Aligned Worlds/Interstellar Alliance).
