The Bariens are an aggressive, war-like race who occupied until
2384 over a hundred sectors of space within the Beta quadrant.
Most of this space had been annexed through invasion and conquest.
This included most of the space formally occupied by the Nuan
The Bariens have a very strict regime and failure is seen as weakness.
In serious cases failure is punished by death, something that
is routine in the military ranks.
Little is know of their biology, due to them living
within their personal armour (Much like the Breen). If the uniform
is not removed correctly, the suit will self-destructs
and liquify the wearer. A captured Barien would rather commit
suicide than live as a prisoner. It is known that the Barien home
planet is class-M, with an oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere. This has
lead the Federation to believe that the armour is more for ceremonial
and personal protection than as an eniviromental suit.
First contact with the Bariens by the Federation occurred in 2365,
leading to the destruction of six probes and a Federation freighter.
These incidents lead to the non-aggressive treaty negotiated by
Captain Thomas Beard, the only Starfleet officer to make direct
contact with the Bariens. This treaty meant that no Federation
vessel was allowed into Barien space.
In 2384 it was discovered that infact the now Admiral Beard had
been conspiring with the Bariens to undermine and invade the Romulan
Empire. The invasion plan was initiated when the Romulan Empire
was severely weakened after an attempted invasion by the Borg.
Seeing a chance, Beard defected to the Bariens and therefore broke
This led to the largest mobilisation of Alpha quadrant forces
since the Dominion war. The armada that was formed consisted mainly
of Federation forces, but also included Cardassian, Klingon and
Romulan vessels, along with vessels from the Nuan alliance and
the Kirusan, a race from the Gamma quadrant discovered by the
The Barien forces were defeated at a heavy price, losses of the
Federation alliance were estimated to be around forty percent.
However, it was estimated that over eighty percent of the Barien
fleet was destroyed.
The Nuan alliance has since started to reclaim from the Bariens
sectors of space they once occupied. The Barien Empire now covers
only nine sectors of space, containing only four systems, including
the Barien homeworld.

FLorans are a race of green skinned humanoids. Their homeworld
is approximately 35 lightyears from Valarian space. Very little
is known about the Florans, only two Starfleet officers made contact,
breaking the prime directive and not much was found out about
Florans seem hostile, but as no more contact has been made with
them, and they are not warp capable, Starfleet have decided to
leave them alone.
Maffei I Galaxy
Iconians are all extinct in our time line, they lived about 200,000
years ago and were the constructors of the Iconian gateways which
provided the travellers with abilities to visit many different
worlds by simply stepping through the gate. Iconians were found
alive in the past in the Mafei I galaxy.
Iconian's are human in appearance apart from large pointed ears.
They all have deep blue eyes and long blonde hair. Their eyes
have a slightly different perception
of color saturation. Allowing them only to see whites and very
pale colours. Anything else appears black or dark blue.
Very little was observed of their culture, but they appeared to
be an incredibly advanced and peaceful civilisation, who were
also capable of communicating with the Q.

are immense beings with a hundred tentacle-like limbs. Their minds
are so powerful they can simultaneaously control each limb individually.
They control a vast galactic empire spanning most of Andromeda.
High levels of hard radiation in that galaxy will shortly make
it uninhabitable, forcing the Kelvans to relocate elsewhere. Scouting
missions were sent to galaxies near Andromeda including the Milky
Way to determine their suitability for conquest by the Kelvans.
In 2384, the Kelvan Armada attacked the major powers of the Milky
Way (Federation, Borg), but was thwarted by the USS Ronin.

the new timeline created by the crew of the USS Ronin and Q, the
Kelvan race remained in their original home galaxy, Maffei I.
The catastrophe that forced them to flee to Andromeda was prevented,
therefore the circumstances leading to their invasion of the Milky
Way were altered.

monkey like creatures, that live on a small planet in the Briar
patch. They were found whils the USS Ronin was insearch of an
Iconian Gateway. They originally took some of the crew prisoner,
but were convinced to set them free by the crew. They then played
a part in the following battle against a large number of pirates.
They live in large communal groups, similar to tribes. They stand
about 3 - 4 feet tall and brandish sharp spears. Their culture
is based around the trees of the jungles they live in. They carve
their history on to the trees, and also build their homes in them.

Valarians are similar in many ways to humans, wiht their average
height a bit shorter, and a vertical cranial ridge, like a klingon.
Their lives average about 50 - 60 years. They are ruled over by
a king and control a small area of space past the Ferengi Alliance.
They are potential Federation members, and are currently in the
process of joining. In 2374, one of their ships discovered a strange
device on an asteroid, they presented it to the federation as
a gift. This later turned out to be a matter duplicating device,
with an evil purpose, discovered by the USS Ronin which resulted
in the destruction of the ship. This did not affect their application
though and they are close to becoming members.
