The Satarrans were at war with the Lysian Alliance for several decades, due to the relatively low technology levels of both sides. Despite that, they have developed a scanning beam that can blank memories via brain chemistry and manipulate computers to the point where a native disguised as a human almost hijacked the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D to win their war for them.

No official name is known for this species. I am calling them Space Jellies based on their appearance. In 2364, a creature of this species was captured by the Bandi and forced to transform into Farpoint Station on Deneb IV. They are an intelligent race of sentient telepathic beings that are capable of manipulating energy to create the effects of replicators and transporters.

Species 8472

species8472Homeworld: Unknown, if any; Fluidic space
Warp capable: Yes
Borg Designation: Species 8472
Classification: Tripedal
Telepathic abilities: Yes, communicated though telepathy
Federation Status: Enemies
First Encountered: by Voyager (VOY episode: “Scorpion”)
Distinctive Features: tripedal, cross-shaped pupils

A sophisticated lifeform native to a realm of fluidic space a dimension apart from our universe, known only by its Borg designation because its self-ascribed name is unknown. The earliest known encounter with the species was in the 2370s when the Borg Collective began their failed attempt to assimilate the race.

Species 8472 became aware of the Milky Way Galaxy and initiated a purge of all other life forms, starting from Borg space. All their attacks against the Borg were victories and it is possible that in a matter of time, the Borg would have been potentially destroyed had it not been for the interference of the Federation starship USS Voyager who formed an alliance with the Collective and developed an effective weapon against Species 8472. After facing their first losses from the weapon, Species 8472 retreated back into their realm.

Sheliak

The Sheliak were also a xenophobic people, and avoided contact with the Federation whenever possible. The Treaty of Armens was established in 2255 between the Sheliak governing body, called “the Corporate”, and the Federation which ceded several worlds to the Sheliak.

The Son’a are descendants of the Ba’ku, who left the Ba’ku colony world in the 2270s when their rebellion against Ba’ku philosophies failed.

Without the regenerative effects of the Ba’ku homeworld’s metaphasic radiation, the Son’a became desperate in their efforts to prolong their lives by any possible means, including genetic manipulation and surgical techniques. The Son’a would make regular visits to facilities where their skin was stretched tight, and accumulated toxins were purged from their bodies.

Srivani

Environmental requirements: M class
Telepathic abilities: None known
Federation Status: Enemies
First Encountered: by Voyager, VOY: “Scientific Method”
Known members: Alzen, Takar.
The Srivani experimented on other species as a method of investigating their own physiology. Their normal method of experimentation involved using a phase variance of 0.15 to render themselves, their ships and their devices both invisible and intangible. They then attached to the hull of a passing ship and spent several weeks carrying out experiments on the crew. These experiments ranged from changes in body chemistry to complex DNA manipulation.
