Talaxians tended to be a whimsical race with a well developed sense of humor. They were usually very friendly, helpful and were willing to offer their services to anyone who required them.

The Talaxians were involved in a lengthy war with the Haakonian Order. The war was so costly to both sides that many Talaxians fled to other regions of the Delta Quadrant. The war between the Talaxians and the Haakonian’s ended in 2355 when the Metreon Cascade weapon was deployed on the Talaxian moon of Rinax, killing millions instantly. As a result the Talaxians declared an unconditional surrender.

Also know as The Children of Tama. The Federation encountered the Tamarians seven times prior to 2368, but were never able to break the language barrier. In that year, Tamarian Captain Dathon beamed himself and Starfleet Captain Jean-Luc Picard to the surface of planet El-Adrel IV, in hopes that a shared conflict would lead to mutual understanding and friendship. During his time on the planet with the Tamerian, Picard learned they communicated exclusively through cultural metaphors derived from their collective experience and mythology. He was able to gain enough understanding of their language to successfully comunicate basic ideas with them by the time he returned to his ship. This contact marked the opening of communication between the two cultures.

Tarchannen III Species

The Tarchannen III species had the ability to mimetic their surroundings, making them nearly invisible. When exposed to an ultraviolet light their blue veins glowed.

Reproduction in the species was accomplished by embedding a parasite into the thymus of a humanoid host. The parasite then used the host’s immune system to spread genetic instructions, transforming the DNA of the host to match its own.

The remaining Tarellian starships were hunted down and destroyed by fearful species. The race was believed to be extinct when the Alcyones destroyed the last known ship in 2356.

Ninety percent of the species are female and they supplemented their gene pool by mating with members of other species. They achieved this by releasing a retrovirus on nearby planets that infected the host male and began adjusting his DNA. The host then started to become Taresian and was drawn to Taresia. There the male was deceived to think he was always a part of the species and convinced to stay and mate with at three woman. The women would remove an amount of DNA to sustain their gene pool, and then kill the unsuspecting male.

The Teplans were once a great civilization, with great cities and advanced technology. As a punishment for there resistance against the Dominion, the Jem’Hadar infected the Teplans with a Blight that was incurable. The disease infected every child before birth, meaning every member of their species was born with the Blight. Most died from it, some as children, others after reaching adulthood. The final stage of the disease was incredibly painful, as the Blight “quickened” and destroyed their body.

The Tholians were an extremely xenophobic, aggressive and territorial race. Tholians were also renowned for their punctuality.

Tholians rarely advanced very far from their home system, and are known to kill outsiders caught trespassing in their territory. They were also known to frequently annex surrounding systems outside of the Assembly, to further isolate their territory.

Federation Status: Neutral
First Encountered: on Deep Space Nine, DS9: “Captive Pursuit”
Tosk or The Hunted, were a genetically engineered species that were bred and trained as skilled opponents to be hunted in a ritual hunt by a species, known as the Hunters. The meaning of life for a Tosk was to outsmart the Hunters for another day. It was a dishonor for a Tosk to be captured and returned to their home planet alive and an even greater dishonor to seek protection from another race. Despite being hunted the Tosk were treated with respect and admiration by the Hunters.

The Traveler has the ability to alter space, time and warp fields with the power of his mind. He could phase out of time and dimension and move between planets and starships.

These abilities were based on his ability to focus the energy of thoughts and in his advanced understanding of the nature of reality. He could also shapeshift to appear as humanoids from other species.

Tribble

tribbleHomeworld: Iota Geminorum IV.
Warp capable: No
Classification: Non-intelligent
Environmental requirements: M class
Telepathic abilities: none:
First Encountered: TOS: “The Trouble with Tribbles”
Distinctive Features: small, round, furry
A small animal characteristically soft, furry, and pleasing to most humanoids (with the exception of Klingons). Tribbles give off a soft purring sound that is soothing to many.
Born pregnant, a single tribble with sufficient food can quickly increase its number exponentially through presumably asexual reproduction, bearing an average litter of ten every twelve hours.

Trill

trillHomeworld: Trill
Warp capable: Yes
Classification: Humanoid
Environmental requirements: M class
Federation Status: Allied, possibly a member
First Encountered: TNG, “The Host”
Blood Coloration: Red
Distinctive Features: Two rows of spots going down each side of their bodies, from forehead to toe
Known members: Ezri Dax, Jadzia Dax, Kareel Odan, Lenara Kahn

A small percentage of the Trill population co-exists with a sentient symbiotic organism known as a symbiont inside their bodies. The resulting joined Trills have personalities which are a synthesis of the two beings including the memories, and to some extent the personalities, of the previous hosts of the symbiont. This way, the joined being gains all the skills and occupations of the previous hosts.

On average, only three hundred symbionts are available for hosting each year and about a thousand Trills apply for joining. Because there are many more humanoid Trills than symbionts, prospective hosts are weeded out by a demanding selection procedure, overseen by the Symbiosis Commission. The competition for the few symbionts is fierce and attracts the brightest and most highly motivated of Trill society. Often the would-be hosts excel in their chosen fields and it is not uncommon for them to hold several degrees or distinctions prior to their joining.

Trill Symbiont

trillsymbiontHomeworld: Trill
Life Span: Hundreds of years
Warp capable: Yes
Classification: Vermiform
Environmental requirements: can only survive inside a Trill host.
Federation Status: Allied, possibly a member
First Encountered: TNG, “The Host”
Known members: Dax, Odan, Kahn

The Symbiont was a sentient vermiform lifeform from the planet Trill. It was transferred from one humanoid Trill host to another upon the death of the host.

The Symbiont took with it all memories of the previous Trill hosts. Upon joining, the new Trill host gained these memories. The Symbionts lived in the Caves of Mak’ala on Trill and were cared for by the Guardians. They communicated with each other via electrical impulses transmitted through the milky water they inhabited.
