What are all the major Star Trek alien species in the Milky Way Galaxy in the 24th Century?
I'm not looking for an exhaustive list of every
alien species that ever showed up in a Star Trek TV show or movie -- aliens of minor or negligible influence in galactic politics, otherwise known as
"aliens of the week" that are seen in one episode only and are never mentioned again, don't concern me.
Primarily I'm looking for the aliens
that have major political entities in the Galaxy (Federations, Empires, etc.) and were also 'fleshed out' on the Star Trek TV shows and movies...
or, at the very least, are very
popular among Star Trek fans.
Well, here's the list as I have it so far. Please help me complete the list!
Home planets (when the name is known) is put in parenthesees next to the name of the species. [Note: Humans are known as Terrans, and their home
planet as Terra, to most other species in the Galaxy.]
1. The Federation of Planets
...a. Humans (Earth)
...b. Vulcans (Vulcan)
...c. Andorians (Andor)
...d. Tellarites (Tellar)
...e. Betazoids (Betazed)
...f. Trill (Trill)
......1. Xindi Reptilians
......2. Xindi Insectoids
......3. Xindi Aquatics
......4. Xindi Primates
......5. Xindi Aborreals
...j. Suliban (?)
Am I missing any major Federation members?
2. Klingon Empire
...a. Klingons (Quo'nos)
3. Romulan Empire
...a. Romulans (Romulus)
...b. Remans (Remus)
4. Cardassian Union
...a. Cardassians (Cardassia Prime)
5. Ferengi Alliance
...a. Ferengi (Ferenginar)
6. Breen Confederacy
7. Tholian Assembly
...a. Tholians (Tholia)
8. Gorn Hedgemony
9. Borg Collective
...a. Borg (no known home world; not an individual species per se)
10. The Dominion
...a. Changelings (aka Shapeshifters, or Founders)
11. Species 8472 (no formal name known)
13. Kazon Nistrum (Does anyone know how many species make up the Kazon, or how they are organized?)
A final note: I'm listing species and their home planets here, not every planet, moon, and starbase that each individual species owns. For example,
even though Earth itself is a member of the Federation, there many planet & moon colonies and starbases which either fall under Earth's jurisdiction,
or are seperate governments who are also members of the Federation...
Thanks for the help!
