Mizarians have more limited color vision than humans. They can =
green and blue, but not red. Purple appears blue, and yellow would be
classified as green or white.
Zireen and related species have four color receptors that are sensitive =
yellow, turquoise, indigo, and ultraviolet. They can't see red at all; it
appears black, but they can distinguish between colors that appear
identical to human eyes.
