Malcorians were a people who believed that they were the highest form of life and that their planet was at the center of the universe. Their planet had a unified government led by a chancellor.
In 2367, the Malcorians were about to initiate their warp program, by launching their first warp-capable spacecraft. The crew of the USS Enterprise-D was undergoing the final preparations for First Contact when Commander Riker was injured and captured. The events led to their decision to delay the warp program and further contact with the Federation.
