Aenar / Andorian moon of Andoria Blue-skinned and passionate Andorians and pacifist, telepathic, albino Aenar. Seen in Classic Trek, glimpsed in TNG but in Enterprise the Andorians have really come back into their own. Originally hostile against their neighbouring Vulcans. Now an established Federation race.
Arcturian Arcturia Cloned race. Glimpsed in ST:TMP.
Bajoran Bajor Ancient Alpha Quadrant race. Only a couple of traders ever encountered. Pre-Cardassian occupation. Rather backward at this time. Religion and art prevail with technology taking a back seat. This race will be annexed in 2328 by the Cardassians, although this is some way off and the Cardassians will be seen as assisting them from around 2309.
Betelgeusian Betelgeuse Flamboyant race. Glimpsed in ST: TMP.
Betazoid Betazed Telepathic race. Admitted to the Federation in 2273. Tal Reno will provide a more in-depth look at this race.
Bolian Bolarus IX Bifurcated blue race.
Caitian Cait Feline race. From the Animated Series. Federation President Sh'ghee is from this world.

Ch'ramaki Ch'ramak Klingonoid farmer race. Created by Adrian Jones for the Interim Years and introduced in ST: Grissom. This is a subjugated race which is exploited for their foodcrops. Destined to be the Chechen/Palestinian/Afghan analogy of Star Trek.

El Aurian None Refugees. Established in ST: TNG. A race of listeners. Arrived as refugees on stardate 9715. This race has provided some information on the Borg threat, although this seems to be kept under wraps.
Ferasan Ferasa Caitian cousins. Larry Niven creation, reimagined by Jimmy Diggs and Court Jones. Renamed by Cryptic for legal issues. Seen in ST: TAS, revisited as the Mirak in Starfleet Command II and reimagined for Lions of the Night. Seen in Star Trek Online. This race has fought many wars with Earth and the Federation.

Grazerite Grazer Bovine race. Seen in DS9 as Federation President. Doctor Jobin A'ochak will explore this race.
Human Earth Mostly harmless. Race in the majority in the Federation.
Klingon Qo'nos Warrior race. Currently at war with the Romulans. Moving towards peace after the Khitomer Accords of stardate 9529. One of the focal races for the initial seasons of the web series. This race will be like the 1990s Russia - crippled after the explosion on Praxis, with a fleet that requires extensive rebuilding, yet all their resources are draining into keeping the Homeworld alive.

Megarite Megarius Gilled humanoids. Glimpsed in ST: TMP.
