Species Close-up: Ullian

An Ullian female.

The Ullians are a telepathic Federation member species who are most notable for their ambitious plan to create a vast library of memories from the sentients of the galaxy. Their unique mental abilities allow Ullian individuals not only to collect others’ memories but also to reconstruct memories where they may have been confused by time or disease. However, those abilities have been used in the Ullians’ past as a potent weapon in which the offender invaded the mind of his or her victim and corrupted the victim’s memories. This “mind rape” was all but eliminated by 2100, but fringe individuals have been found guilty of telepathic invasion as recently as 2368.

Species Close-up: Laudean

A Laudean female.

The Laudeans are a humanoid species and the only native sapient species on Til’ahn (also known as Luxis II or Duronis II). Laudeans feature three sexes – male, female, and lomale – and while, as with most humanoid species, the male provides a sperm and the female the egg and carries the child, the lomale is required to copulate with both the male and the female in order to provide essential gene sequences and enzymes that neither the female nor the male can synthesize naturally. Lomales comprise only 3% of the totally Laudean population.

The United Federation of Planets maintains an embassy on Til’ahn, although it was abandoned in 2381 and Romulan displaced by the Hobus event occupied the planet until the Federation reopened the embassy in 2388. The Laudeans are technically advanced, but the Duronis system, due to a natural process, does not allow for the creation of a stable warp field, and so the non-warp-capable Laudeans were unknown to the neighboring Romulans, Zalkonians, and the Federation for many years.

Species Close-up: Aurelian

The Aurelian people are a peaceful species that evolved over time from large migratory birds. They have never experience war on their planet and while their first off world contact was not pleasant they were quickly able to correct this problem. They contacted the Vulcans who with the aid of Starfleet put a stop to any possible exploitation that the Orions had been planning. This quick intervention by Federation forces encouraged the Aurelian people to establish positive relations that resulted in their joining the Federation.

While they seldom wear any form of clothing they do use a system of belts and harnesses to hold and carry any equipment they may need. While few of them have ever joined Starfleet, those that have went into the medical, engineering or science fields. They have incredible memories and can remember a lot of data. This is a result of their long history of learning the oral records and history of their tribe and species.
