In 2371, Federation representatives aboard the USS Defiant approached the Karemma in an effort to contact the Founders.

The Karemma were naive when it came to business dealings, and the Ferengi took advantage of them for a while by gouging them with fabricated taxes and tariffs.

In 2372, trade minister Hanok met with the staff Deep Space 9 to discuss their complaints with Ferengi trade practices. During this meeting Hanok also helped the crew of the starship Defiant deal with a Jem’Hadar attack.

As refugees of a galaxy poisoned by heavy radiation, the Kelvans assumed humanoid form, and were finding themselves beginning to show characteristics of the bodies they assumed.

One of the major powers of the galaxy, the Klingons were a proud, tradition-bound people who valued honor and combat. The aggressive Klingon culture had made them an interstellar military power to be respected and feared.

Once at war with the Federation Klingons are now close allies. A few Klingons like Worf and Belanna Torres serve on board federation ships.

Klingon culture was shaped by centuries of tradition. Most of the basics of their society were laid out by Kahless the Unforgettable during the forging of the First Empire.

The Code of Kahless consisted of basic rules to limit combat to a contest between equals. It ensured Klingons remained true to their word, that they would not intentionally target non-combatants, or declared neutral parties, and that they would attack openly, and not hide behind poisons or assassins.

Klingon society functioned through a system of family reputation and honor. Tradition was an integral part of their lives and breaking from observances was considered a grievous insult to society, an insult not forgotten easily. An offense usually brought shame to the offender’s name for several generations. The highest shame was discommendation, an action by the High Council to officially strip a Klingon of his personal or family honor.

When a Klingon died, the spirit was considered to have exited the body, leaving behind a worthless shell to be disposed of. In the Klingon death ritual, it was traditional for those on hand to howl into the sky, as a warning to the afterlife that a Klingon warrior was about to arrive. Those who died honorably supposedly went to Sto-vo-kor, where Kahless was said to await them.

The dishonored, however, were banished forever to the fire and icy wastes of Gre’thor, a barren wasteland guarded by the great Fek’lhr beast, the Klingon devil. Once a Klingon arrived in the underworld, they would board the Barge of the Dead, where Kortar, the first Klingon, would set sail for Gre’thor.

Klingon society was based on a feudal system organized around traditional Great Houses of noble lineage, to which various parts of the population owed fealty. The Great Houses are traditionally represented in the Klingon High Council, which is led by a Chancellor.

Known Klingon Great Houses: House of Antaak, House of D’Ghor, House of Duras, House of Grilka, House of Konjah, House of Kor, House of Martok, House of Mo’Kai, House of Mogh, House of Noggra

Krenim

Warp capable:Yes
Classification: Humanoid
Environmental requirements: M class

First Encountered: 2374-2375. Temporal disturbances reported during all encounters makes specific stardates difficult to pinpoint. VOY: “Year of Hell”

The Krenim were a technologically-advanced humanoid species from the Delta Quadrant. In an alternate timeline, Voyager traversed Krenim space beginning on stardate 50973, enduring constant Krenim attacks in what the crew eventually termed the “Year of Hell”. A large number of the crew was killed, including Captain Kathryn Janeway, B’Elanna Torres, and Joseph Carey. During one of the Krenim attacks, Kes was exposed to chroniton radiation. The Doctor’s attempts to save her caused her to travel randomly backwards in time to various points in her own life. While she was in 2373, Kes warned Janeway of the Krenim danger. As a result Voyager avoided Krenim space and little is known about this species.

Ktarian

ktarianHomeworld: Ktaris
Life Span: Unknown but infants have a much higher rate of growth than Human infants.
Warp capable: Yes
Borg Designation: Species 6961

Federation Status: Neutral possibly a member
First Encountered: TNG: “The Game”
Distinctive Features: various forehead bumps or spikes
Known members: Greskrendtregk, Etana Jol, Mizan,Naomi Wildman (half Human)

Ktarians are renowned for advancements in neurology. They created a type of mind-control technology disguised as the highly addictive “Ktarian game”, and attempted to use it in order to wrest control of Starfleet. The Ktarians almost succeeded in gaining control of the USS Enterprise-D but failed due to the efforts of Lieutenant Commander Data, Ensign Robin Lefler, and Wesley Crusher.

Despite this incident relations between the Ktarian and the Federation seem to be in good standing as demonstrated by the marriage of the U.S.S Voyager’s Xenobiologist (Ensign Samantha Wildman,) to a Ktarian named Greskrendtregk.
