Hey all!

Wanted to start another game here in the Star Trek section here at GW. Basically if you know the A-Z and Star Trek great here. :)

For example:

Once Z is reached, the cycle starts with A again. There are no limits here on what you can use for examples from the Star Trek Universe. Actors, story titles, alien races, writers, directors, objects, planets, space stations... the list goes on and on. Everything goes! :D

Please write descriptions next to your example for this game, there is another game for just words or names if this is too much effort.

For example:

The purpose here is to put descriptions next your examples. The main thing here is to have fun but I also think this game can also serve as an educational experience for those of you just starting to learn about this awesome series.

With all of the movies and series involved in Star Trek this shouldn't be too hard.

However, In case anyone does get stuck, then I recommend some links which might help:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Star_Trek_races

http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Star_Trek_Encyclopedia

Maybe it would be a good idea to add those links to your Favorites / Bookmarks? It'd maybe save you referring back to this opening post?

The main thing here is to have fun and maybe learn a thing or two about the Star Trek. I hope you'll all join in. The game begins with the post that follows directly below.

Have fun everyone! :)

- Matt

A - Andorians are a humanoid species from the moon Andoria, homeworld of the Andorian Empire, and one of the founding members of the United Federation of Planets.

Most Andorians were blue-skinned with white or silver hair. An Andorian subspecies called the Aenar had white skin and, unlike blue Andorians, were blind and telepathic.

E-Enterprise The flagship of the Federation and the Star Trek franchise. There have been seven versions of this ship. The first was the pre-Federation NX-01 commanded by Jonathan Archer. The remaining six bore some version of NCC-1701 during their missions. The Constitution class NCC-1701 and 1701-A were commanded by James T. Kirk, the Excelsior class NCC-1701-B was commanded by Jonathan Harriman, the Ambassador Class NCC-1701-C was commanded by Rachel Garret, and the Galaxy and Sovereign class NCC-1701-D and NCC-1701-E were commanded by Jean-Luc Picard.

H - Hierarchy Physically the species is humanoid with dull brown skin, and few distinguishing features - hairless, and with few noticeable facial features, it is almost impossible for other species to distinguish between individuals of this race.

They use surveillance on passing ships for future raids. This is done by special surveillance ships, hiding in Nebulae for example, who use sensors to assess the tactical risk of attacking passing vessels and the available loot. They use cloaked ships to sneak up on vessels.

I - Imutta was a vedek serving in the Bajoran temple on Deep Space 9's Promenade in 2372.

When Akorem Laan briefly took on the role of Emissary, and advocated the return of the D'jarra system, Imutta was killed by Vedek Porta after refusing to leave the order. His family Imutta's D'jarra was to prepare the dead for burial, which Porta considered unclean and unsuited for work as a vedek. Imutta was pushed from the second level of the Promenade, breaking his neck and dying almost instantly.

L-Lore The "brother" of Data and B-4, Lore was a second generation model of android built on the Omicron Theta colony. Unlike Data, Lore was capable of emotional expression and the use of contractions. However, he scared the inhabitants of Omicron Theta who asked that Dr. Soong shut him down. Angered, Lore decided to contact the Crystalline Entity which attacked and destroyed the colony, leaving only the two androids and a handful of survivors. While Data was discovered and re-activated Lore remained in storage until the USS Enterprise-D arrived at the colony. When there, Data, intrigued by his past re-activated his brother, who claimed he was "more perfect" than Data. Lore immediately reverted to his old ways, attempting to hijack the Enterprise and feed it to the Crystalline Entity. After being foiled he spent some time drifting in space until he was rescued by a Pakled freighter. Eventually he responded to Dr. Soong's homing signal, intended for Data. During the family reunion he murdered Dr. Soong and stole the emotions chip intended for his brother. Eventually he discovered a group of rogue, independent, Borg drones and promised he would work to make them completely mechanical. He, with the aid of Data who was being "drugged" by the emotions chip, trapped the Enterprise and kidnapped and tortured several of the command staff until Data was reset and was able to stop Lore. Data considered him too much of a threat and dismantled and left his brother adrift in space.

M - Mora Pol was the Bajoran scientist who was assigned to study the Changeling who became known as Odo after he was discovered.

Mora studied and taught Odo at the Bajoran Center for Science during the Occupation of Bajor from 2358-65. When Odo assumed the shape of a humanoid, he imitated Dr. Mora's hairstyle.

Odo was labeled as an "Unknown Sample", which a Cardassian overseer translated as "Odo'ital" in Cardassian.

However, Odo resented Mora as he failed to realize that Odo was sentient. Under pressure from the Cardassians to get answers, some of Mora's methods of experimenting were questionable. Odo left the institute two years later.

When Odo was to be shown to the Cardassian High Command, Dr. Mora persuaded him to practice and perform the "Cardassian neck trick". Mora made him practice it for weeks.

Mora and Odo did not reconcile their differences until 2373, when Mora arrived on Deep Space 9 to assist Odo in treating and educating an infant Changeling. Odo planned to visit Dr. Mora later that year, but decided not to after a large increase in crime on Deep Space 9.

N - Nausicaans are a strong and typically violent race. The name appears to be an allusion to Nausicaa from Homer's Odyssey, a woman whose name means "burner of ships."

In the 22nd century, before the founding of the Federation, Nausicaan pirates were a significant threat to human freighters, and the early Starfleet spent much of its time on watch for Nausicaan pirates. This included a raid on the ECS Fortunate, a civilian cargo freighter, in 2151. This was detailed in the Enterprise episode "Fortunate Son".

In 2327, a young ensign Jean-Luc Picard was stabbed in the back by a gang of three Nausicaans in a bar fight at the Bonestell Recreation Facility at Starbase Earhart, requiring the replacement of his heart with an artificial one. This event was depicted in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode, "Tapestry," in Season 6.

O - Opaka was the spiritual leader of Bajor in the latter days of the Cardassian Occupation and the early days of Bajor's independence from Cardassian rule. One of the most respected figures in the Bajoran culture, Opaka was left in the Gamma Quadrant in 2369.

Opaka was born under Cardassian rule during the half-century long occupation of the her world. As an adult, she rose to great prominence among the Bajoran spiritual community, eventually becoming Kai.

Constantly working to protect her people and serve the will of the Prophets, Opaka became a revered figure among her people. During the last decade of the Occupation, however, she secretly collaborated with the Cardassians. Opaka sent Prylar Bek to inform them of the location of a Bajoran Resistance cell in the Kendra Valley. This saved the lives of 1,200 other Bajorans, but Opaka sacrificed her son in the process – as a member of the cell, he was killed in the resulting massacre. Opaka's involvement was never discovered, even after Prylar Bek made a full confession. Vedek Bareil lost the kaiship to keep secret the fact she had sacrificed her son and his group in order to save hundreds of civilians from retribution.

P - Preservers

In the fictional universe of Star Trek, the Preservers are an ancient race of aliens who visited Earth thousands of years ago and removed some human specimens from the planet. The aliens then "seeded" these humans on other planets within the galaxy that had similar Earth-like environments.

No one is sure why the aliens did this, and most speculate that it was part of a great experiment to test the adaptability of humans, who the aliens believed would one day serve as their replacements. It appears that the Preservers themselves were a dying race and no longer exist. The only evidence of their culture are ancient artifacts and ruins that litter various humanoid worlds. Many races that have been encountered have a sketchy pre-history, some unable to explain their sudden appearance on their worlds, while other cultures have clearly documented evidence that they are not native to their home planets.

The Preservers are discussed explicitly in the Star Trek: The Original Series episode "The Paradise Syndrome", in which Preserver technology inadvertently (and temporarily) erases Captain Kirk's memory, and the amnesiac Kirk settles down in a Preserver-seeded society of Native Americans. Although popular in fan fiction, the Preservers are never again featured in explicit canon. In the Star Trek Voyager episode "Natural Law" an unidentified race that may be the Preservers erects a forcefield to protect an indigenous culture on a Delta Quadrant planet. The idea that the Preservers are the "Ancient Humanoid" aliens featured in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "The Chase" is uncertain and debated amongst Star Trek fans. Although their "seeding" actions seem to parallel that of the Preservers, the Ancient Humanoids may in fact be a different culture entirely, as they were active billions of years before the actions of the Preservers. Screenwriter Ronald Moore has reportedly stated that the two races are, in fact, the same.

R - Remans are natives of the planet Remus, resembling bats. They were first introduced in the movie Star Trek Nemesis. According to the film's backstory, they were subjugated ever since the Romulans staked claim and set up their new homeworld in the system. Since Remus is tidally locked with the system's primary star, the species lives in constant darkness, and so the Remans are extremely sensitive to light.

It was never made clear if the Remans were the original inhabitants, or were a mutated offshoot of the original Vulcan colonists, or the result of interbreeding between the original Vulcan colonists and the original inhabitants of Romulus or Remus. Though grotesque, their morphological constitution has much in common with their possible Vulcan progenitors, such as pointed ears, limited telepathic powers, and greater physical strength and endurance than most humanoid species.

S - Surmak Ren was a Bajoran male who was born on Bajor in 2319 to Surmak Hoek and Surmak Stimson. Surmak graduated as a medical doctor from the University of Bajor in 2342, genetic programming being his major field of study.

Following his graduation, Surmak was a member of the Akira Advanced Genetics Research Unit where he was recognized for his work in viral function studies. In 2351 he worked as an assistant to Dekon Elig, who created the aphasia virus booby trap.

Surmak was later suspected by Cardassian Intelligence of supporting various Bajoran terrorist groups including the Kohn-Ma. Surmak was later arrested when informants in the Higa Metar revealed that he was a secret member of that sect and was responsible for several disruptive acts committed by that sect. He was arrested several times in early 2356, but released for insufficient evidence. He was convicted of terrorist activity by the Cardassian Regional Court in 2357 on charges of terrorist activity stemming from the kidnapping of Gul Spumco. Later that year, he was imprisoned on Velos VII.

Surmak was later repatriated to Bajor on stardate 46302.8, where he became chief administrator of the Ilvian Medical Complex. That year, the aphasia virus, which had previously been planted on Terok Nor during the Occupation of Bajor, was inadvertently activated by the crew of Deep Space 9.

In order to save the crew, Major Kira Nerys contacted Surmak to inquire about an antidote. At first he was reluctant to help, but Kira kidnapped him and transported him onto the station. This caused him to become infected as well, thus forcing him to develop an antidote.

T- Tamarians are a bald, orange, humanoid species of the Alpha Quadrant who speak primarily (if not entirely) by metaphor. Their metaphoric language is based on the Tamarian ancient history, making it virtually incomprehensible to anyone without background knowledge of the history. It is also inferred that they have limited, or no, concept of individuality. They are a highly advanced species capable of space travel, though to what degree is unknown.

V - Voth are a reptilian humanoid species descended from Earth's dinosaurs, most likely a Hadrosaurid. The Voth escaped Earth when the environment was wrecked by an asteroid impact 65 million years ago. They travelled across the galaxy, eventually settling in the Delta Quadrant. The Voth are extremely advanced technically, possessing transwarp drive systems.

Voth territory seems to be in close proximity to Borg space. The Borg have been able to assimilate individual Voth (see the Voth page of Memory Alpha), but the technology of the Voth civilization seems at least as advanced as that of the Borg, and (given the relative ages of the two species) may be considerably more advanced. Whatever the case, they have obviously managed to avoid wide-scale assimilation (no easy feat). The Voth's contact with the Borg may have contributed to their strong antipathy towards mammalian humanoids.

As a society, the Voth are dogmatic recluses who have spun a fictional story ("The Doctrine") about their own past in order to create social cohesion. Although they have been away from Earth for 65 million years and have achieved much technologically, they have never been able to establish a permanent planetary home. The Voth have at least one enormous city ship for housing their government (and possibly a large portion of their civilization).

In the 24th century, the Voth leadership threatened to destroy the crew of Voyager and a rogue Voth scientist, if they refused to disavow evidence that the Voth originated on Earth. This was the so-called "Distant Origin" theory. At the close of contact between the Voth and Humans in the 24th Century, it was not considered hopeful that the two sister species would reunify anytime soon.

Y - Yarka was a former member of the Vedek Assembly. In 2371, several Cardassian scientists came to the Bajoran sector in an attempt to establish permanent communications to the Gamma Quadrant through the Bajoran wormhole. Yarka became convinced that Trakor's Third Prophecy was coming true and that the Celestial Temple would be destroyed. He urged Commander Benjamin Sisko not to assist the Cardassians in this venture, though Sisko ultimately chose not to follow Yarka's warnings.

After the wormhole was not destroyed, Yarka concluded that he had misinterpreted the prophecy and apologised to Sisko for allowing his mistrust of the Cardassians to blind him to the Prophets' will. He did, however, add that there were signs that Trakor's Fourth Prophecy would soon come to pass.

B - Ba'ku people were a technologically advanced humanoid civilization. In the early 21st century, the race developed the means of building weapons of mass destruction and was on the brink of self-annihilation. A small enlightened group of the Ba'ku people escaped this horror and found an isolated planet.

This group of Ba'ku followed a simple way of life and disdained the use of technology. (As shown in the film Star Trek: Insurrection, however, the Ba'ku still possessed some form of technology and the ability to use it in emergencies, since they had attempted to repair the damaged Data.) At first the Ba'ku were unaware of the metaphasic radiation in the planet's rings, which caused their aging process to significantly decelerate, although it was later discovered and cherished.

The Ba'ku society consisted of strong bonds between each individual as there were less than a thousand living in a village. Their simpler way of life eventually prompted some of the younger Ba'ku villagers - who wanted to explore the galaxy with offlanders - to rebel against their elders, and an attempt was made to take over the village. When they were unsuccessful, they were exiled and eventually became the Son'a people.

In 2375 peace on the Ba'ku planet was restored, and several members of the Son'a returned to their families.

D -Drayans are a xenophobic race from the Delta Quadrant. The crew of the USS Voyager in Star Trek: Voyager discovered the Drayan elders when one of its shuttlecraft crashed on one of the Drayan moons.
Drayans live on Drayan II, and have little to no contact with outside races. They have a very closed society, due to their species unique attribute of aging. It is uncertain how Drayans are born: They are born looking as if they are elderly, around the human age of 100. From there, they age backwards, growing younger in body as they grow older in wisdom and experience.
When they appear to be the age of a six-year-old human child (making them over 90 in Drayan years), they are shuttled over to one of the moons of Drayan II, where they essentially die. Their bodies disappear, leaving only their clothes behind. This journey is viewed as a sacrament.
Basically humanoid in appearance, Drayans have a coloured line down their forehead, the only visible mark that distinguishes them from humans.

E-Excelsior, USS

The prototype in the long serving Excelsior class vessels. The original Excelsior was placed under the command of Captain Scott Styles. Dubbed "The Great Experiment" she was fitted with an experimental transwarp drive, and was supposed to be the fastest ship in Starfleet. However, it was sabotaged by Montgomery Scott during the command staff of the USS Enterprise's attempt at hijacking that vessel. She later encountered difficulty when the Whale Probe attacked Earth. Eventually Hakiru Sulu was given command of the ship. Under his command the Excelsior was the first ship to respond to the disaster on the Klingon moon of Praxis. Later when James T. Kirk and Dr. Leonard McCoy were falsely imprisoned in the Klingon penal colony of Rura Penthe she attempted a rescue, but was prevented from doing so by Kang (the event would later mentally scar a young lieutenant Tuvok). Later she came to the Enterprise's rescue, which was fighting a cloaked Klingon bird of prey over Khitomer.

J - Jaro Essa was a Bajoran politician who served as minister in the Bajoran Provisional Government in 2370. He was also the leader of the Alliance for Global Unity that sought to remove the Federation from the Bajoran system. He attempted to bring down the Provisional Government and install himself as leader of Bajor.

In 2370, Jaro appointed Li Nalas to the post of Bajoran liaison officer on Deep Space 9 with the designation of navarch, following his return from Cardassia IV. He had Kira kidnapped when she came too close to discovering his plot. Jaro revealed to her that he was the leader of the Circle, and that he assigned Li Nalas to the station so the war hero wouldn't interfere with Jaro's coup.

He was buying weapons from the Kressari who were a front for the Cardassians who were trying to undermine the Bajoran government. He believed that if Bajor was heavily armed, it would not need anyone's protection. Bajor could order the Federation out. Jaro was assisted in his dealings by Vedek Winn Adami, General Krim and Colonel Day. His plan failed when Kira and Jadzia Dax revealed to the Bajoran Ministers that the Cardassians were secretly behind the arming of the Circle and provided evidence to prove it.

L - Li Nalas was a leader of one of Bajor's many resistance cells during the Cardassian Occupation of Bajor, and a revered war hero. He was considered the greatest Bajoran resistance fighter ever.

Li earned his reputation by slaying the infamous Gul Zarale in an intense duel. The story was told and retold among the Bajoran population until it was transformed into a gripping tale of patriotic courage. Li Nalas' career as a resistance fighter ended with his capture in 2360. Although his body was never found, he was presumed dead until 2370, when he was rescued from the Hutet labor camp on Cardassia IV by Major Kira Nerys of the Bajoran Militia.

Upon his return to Deep Space 9, he became very uncomfortable with his hero status, and attempted to secretly leave the station for the Gamma Quadrant. Discovered by Commander Benjamin Sisko, he explained that the stories of his heroism were wrong. In reality, he had stumbled across the bathing Cardassian and was forced to shoot him. Li confided with Sisko that he had always felt uncomfortable with being an accidental hero. Sisko persuaded him to return to Bajor, which was on the verge of civil war.

Shortly after his return to Bajor, Li was given both the honorary title of Navarch and Kira's position as Bajoran liaison officer on board Deep Space 9, much to his embarrassment. This was done by Minister Jaro, who wanted to get Kira out of a position of power and to get Li off Bajor so that he would not influence Jaro's plot to take over the government.

His rescue proved to be just in the nick of time, as he was able to play a pivotal role in preventing a disastrous coup d'état orchestrated by the Alliance for Global Unity. He helped rescue Kira from the insurgents, and helped defend the station against General Krim's troops, who attempted to take the station by force. After capturing Krim, Li was able to explain that the coup was being orchestrated by the Cardassians. Krim told his troops to stand down. Li was killed while saving Sisko from an attack by Colonel Day Kannu, and as a result, became a hero both in legend and reality.

M - Mari are a telepathic, humanoid species from the Delta Quadrant.

Until the mid-24th century, the Mari society was violent and crime was a major issue on their world. This was primarily caused by violent instincts being passed from one person to another via telepathy. This is similar to the problems experienced by the Vulcans before Surak's revolution.

To solve this problem, the Mari outlawed violent thoughts and developed a memory adjustment technique to remove the offending engrams from a criminal's mind. By their system, any crime was caused by the person who originally had the violent thought and it was their mind that was altered.

Although violent thoughts had apparently been eradicated, a black market arose in which people sold violent thoughts to allow others to experience dark emotions. This remained a relatively harmless practice until 2374 when a thought harvested from B'Elanna Torres of the USS Voyager proved so violent that its hosts became unstable. As a result, one Mari individual was badly beaten and another murdered before the culprits were caught and the black market and outlawed thoughts was uncovered.

Neelix described Mari women as, "beautiful, fascinating, and very open-minded."

Neural Interface


A neural interface is a technology that allows access to an individual's mind.

In 2154, the neural interface helmet was a major component of the telepresence unit, which was used by the Romulans to control their drone-ship from their homeworld, Romulus. (ENT: "The Aenar")

Borg drones are able to initiate a direct neural interface with each other through their assimilation tubules. Seven of Nine used this method to communicate with One, a 29th century drone, in 2375. (VOY: "Drone")

In 2376, Seven of Nine linked her neural interface with that of Lansor, P'Chan, and Marika Wilkarah, all former drones of her unimatrix, in order to access missing memories of their time on Planet 1865-Alpha eight years previous. (VOY: "Survival Instinct")

Later that year, the former Borg Azan and Rebi used their neural interfaces to cheat during a game of kadis-kot with Icheb, Mezoti, and Naomi Wildman. (VOY: "Ashes to Ashes")

O - Organians are a fictional race in the universe of Star Trek. They are one of the most evolved, advanced alien races ever encountered by the crew of the original Enterprise.

The Klingons and the Federation were in dispute over the Klingon Empire expanding into spaces claimed by the Federation. With war breaking out, the Enterprise under James T. Kirk was sent to Organia to persuade its inhabitants to ally with the Federation and allow defenses. Before Kirk could persuade them, the Klingons occupied the planet. The Organians portrayed themselves as being a race barely into the Industrialized Age. Even Spock remarked to Kirk that they represented a classic example of a race experiencing no significant evolution, as their technology had shown no measurable advance in thousands of years.

The Klingons and Enterprise started to attack each other while in orbit, yet both sides were stopped by the Organians through their immense powers.

As a direct result of their intervention between the Klingon Empire and the Federation, both sides were forced to agree to a truce, in which in order for either side to gain another planet for their respective sides, they must prove to be more worthy by their ability to efficiently develop that planet.

It is not known when or if the Organian Peace Treaty was superseded in the subsequent episodes of the Star Trek saga, and the current status of the Organians is unclear in the present Star Trek Mythos.

The Organians were a race of beings who had evolved to a point of being pure conceptual beings, essence of thought with no corporeal bodies. In some ways they were similar to Q for power levels and abilities, but it is unknown if these two races ever encountered each other.

Q - Q Continuum is an extradimensional plane of existence inhabited by a race of extremely powerful, hyper-intelligent beings known as the Q. They claim to be largely indifferent to the affairs of the non-Q beings living in normal space, or in the many dimensions parallel to their own, considering them to be insignificant and childlike, though sometimes amusing as only children can be. However, they are clearly very interested in human beings in particular, subjecting the human race to various tests. These tests often imply that they feel somewhat threatened by humanity's potential, but are intrigued by it as well. The Q have appeared in episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager. One of the Q is known as Quinn to the Voyager crew.

T - Tal Celes was a Bajoran Starfleet crewman who served aboard the Federation starship USS Voyager, which became stranded in the Delta Quadrant in 2371. By 2376, Celes was a grade three sensor analyst assigned to Voyager's astrometrics department under Seven of Nine, the department's head.

At Starfleet Academy Celes had great difficulty with her enlisteé training courses and worked three times as hard as her classmates in order to keep up. She frequently had to spend all night cramming to pass her training. She believed that she was graduated from training due to sympathy over her homeworld's conflict, and the desire of Starfleet to have Bajorans in the service.

The Federation also maintains its own military and exploratory agency, known as Starfleet. The United Federation of Planets and Starfleet are the primary focus of all the Star Trek series, with the exception of Star Trek: Enterprise, which is set before the Federation comes into existence.

W - Waddi are a race from the Gamma Quadrant who first appeared in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. They are Human-like, with black markings on their chins and/or foreheads. The Waddi have a huge love for games. One game, consisting of 5 "shapps", or levels, somehow gets Cmdr. Sisko, Kira, Jadzia Dax, and Doctor Bashir actually playing the game by being the pawns. The Waddi appear in the episode Move Along Home.
