The Aldean’s homeworld of Aldea was considered only a legend for thousands of years.

The society was self-contained and self-sustaining with incredible technical sophistication. Having reached enlightenment, the Aldean society retreated from the rest of the galaxy. To facilitate this, their progenitors built an enormous and advanced planet-wide defense system. The system, run by the computer called the Custodian, maintained an immense cloaking device and defense shield, in addition to a repulsor beam powerful enough to push starships several hundred light years away.

This cloak caused sterility in the entire population. In the 2360s, the Aldeans revealed themselves to the USS Enterprise crew and abducted some of the Enterprise crew’s children in an effort to prevent their own extinction.

The beings known as the ancient humanoids were presumably the first humanoid species to evolve in the Milky Way galaxy, some four and a half billion years before the common era. Their true name lost since time immemorial, they have also come to be known as the Ancient Progenitors, and the Galenites, a name derived from the man whose work led to their discovery, Dr. Richard Galen.

they seeded the primeval seas of young planets, with DNA molecules “programmed” to direct evolution of life on these planets towards the emergence of organisms similar to those in the ancient humanoids’ homeworld; including of course, a sapient humanoid race.

Known planets seeded by the ancient humanoids include Earth, Indri VIII, Loren III, Ruah IV and Vilmor II, among others.
Other species to arise from this seeding program include the Cardassians, Klingon and Vulcans.

Encoded within certain DNA fragments were parts of a holographic message, meant for the ancient humanoids’ progeny. The message was discovered by Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise, along with representatives of the Klingon, Cardassian and Romulan races.
