Name Description First seen
B'omar1 Highly paranoid, the B'omar tried to place many restrictions on Voyager when it attempted to pass through their space. The Raven was assimilated in B'omar space.1 The Raven
B'Saari2 The first species to make contact with the Denobulans.2 Native to B'Saari II, the B'Saari are able to reanimate the recently dead - though the process only restores basic body functions. Research into a more complete reanimation was proceeding in 2153.3 Future Tense
Ba'ku4 The Ba'ku are a people filled with contradictions. Their home world is unknown, but is believed to be located beyond Federation space. Some three hundred years and fifty years ago the Ba'ku had entered a period of rapidly escalating and uncontrolled technological advancement, to the point where they were on the verge of destroying themselves. A group of Ba'ku left their world to begin again, fearing a catastrophe. Determined not to repeat the mistakes the rest of their people had made, the Ba'ku adopted a philosophy of near total avoidance of high technology. The Ba'ku claimed that when a machine was built to do the work of a person, it took away an essential quality of that person.

For two hundred years the Ba'ku society continued in a pre industrial state; however, in the 2270's a group of young Ba'ku attempted to seize control of the settlement. They planned to abandon the policy on non reliance on technology and become a star faring species once again, but their attempt quickly failed and the group were exiled from the planet in a spacecraft constructed specifically for this purpose.

Renaming themselves the Son'a, the exiled Ba'ku spent almost fifty years building a technologically based culture on a world beyond Federation borders. In the 2320's they conquered two other species and integrated them into their society as a labour class in order to provide themselves with the manpower base needed to turn them into a major power. By the 2370's the Ba'ku were maintaining a fleet of some two hundred warships. Their reputation in galactic affairs was not a good one - in part due to their subjugation of other species, but also because they were widely rumoured to employ subspace weaponry on their warships. For many years the Federation declined to establish diplomatic relations with the Son'a, but after the beginning of the Dominion war it was learned that the Son'a were able to reproduce Ketracel White in large quantities. The Federation immediately moved to isolate the Son'a from the Dominion and establish an alliance with them, a move the Son'a welcomed with open arms.

However, the Son'a had one major problem; without the unique environment of the Ba'ku planet, the original generation of Son'a were reaching the end of their natural lives. Used to immortality, their leaders became obsessed with regaining the youth they had lost. Unable to challenge the Federation directly, the Son'a siezed on the opportunity presented by the offer of an alliance. When they learned that Starfleet had already discovered the Ba'ku settlement and learned of the immortality enjoyed by the natives, the Son'a came to the Federation offering an explanation for the Ba'ku puzzle; high concentrations of metaphasic radiation particles in the planets rings was continually regenerating the genetic structure of the life on the planet. Concealing their Ba'ku heritage, the Son'a offered a method of collecting this radiation via a large orbital vessel they had constructed. The potential was awesome; a whole new medical science would be created, with sufficient radiation present in the rings to treat billions of individuals. However, the collection method involved initiating an isothermic reaction within the rings which would destroy all life on the surface of the planet.

Naturally, the Federation refused this offer as it would contravene the Prime Directive. However, it was agreed to establish a duck blind facility on the surface and conduct covert surveillance of the Ba'ku in an attempt to investigate the planets environment more thoroughly. During this research it became apparent to the Federation that the Ba'ku were not in fact a primitive people; they possessed technological knowledge up to and including warp drive. With Prime Directive considerations considerably eased by the Ba'ku's new status, the Federation decided to proceed with the Son'a plan. The whole Ba'ku population was limited to six hundred people, all living in one small area. The Federation constructed a replica of their village and the surrounding countryside on a suitably similar planet, and a vessel was built which was capable of transplanting the Ba'ku without their knowledge. However, shortly prior to the implementation of the plan Captain Picard and the crew of the Enterprise-E discovered the operation and made it public, including the fact that the Son'a and Ba'ku were one and the same people.4
The Federation halted the entire project while a reappraisal was initiated.

After the failure of the project to relocate the Ba'ku, some of the Son'a decided to return to their people. Others have continued to operate independently. The Federation council is continuing its deliberations on the matter.

Bajoran Shrimp6 Animal native to Bajor.6 You are Cordially Invited...
Bajorans7 One of the Alpha quadrants more humanoid species, the Bajorans are distinguishable from humans primarily by the appearance of their nose, which is both ridged and slightly more prominent.8 Female Bajorans have a relatively rapid gestation period of five months, which leads to a very fast vascularisation process.9

The Bajoran culture is one of the longest-lived in the alpha quadrant; their civilisation flourished over half a million years ago7 and they first gained interstellar capacity over eight centuries ago.10 The dominant religion of the planet dates back at least ten thousand years, and is centred around worship of the aliens living within the bajoran Wormhole - the Bajorans refer to these entities as 'The Prophets' and to the wormhole as the 'Celestial Temple'.11

More recently the Bajorans have not fared so well. The Cardassians invaded Bajor in 2328, driving much of the native population from the planet and enslaving the remainder. Bajoran culture suffered greatly during this period, with many living in squalid conditions. Despite this, the Bajorans maintained a small but aggressive resistance effort throughout the occupation7 and by 2369 the Cardassian government had become frustrated with the militaries inability to crush this movement. Weary of decades of terrorist activity, the Cardassians pulled out of Bajor in this year.11

The Bajorans established a provisional government,8 and despite many difficulties they have been successful in overcoming many of their problems. In 2373 the Bajorans petition for Federation membership was accepted, but at the last moment they withdrew their application for religious reasons.12 The Bajoran remained politically neutral in the early parts of the war, allowing them to avoid a direct Dominion invasion when Deep Space Nine was captured.13 When the Federation retook the station,14 the Bajorans sided with the allies despite some initial trouble with the Romulans.15

A major factor in the Bajoran way of life has been their relationship with the wormhole aliens, who the Bajorans think of as gods.8 Much anguish was caused when the Pagh-Wraiths managed to close the wormhole,16 but Captain Sisko was successful in using an Orb to reopen it.17 Sisko also participated in a final battle against the Wraiths in the Bajoran Fire Caves, sealing them into the caves forever.18

Ensign Ro
Balduk19 Possible species name. Worf said he would rather face a Balduk warrior than a child. It may be that the Bladuk are not a species but some social group, so a Balduk warrior may be something like Samurai warrior.19 New Ground
Bamboo20 Earth plant20 In the Flesh
Bandi21 The Bandi inhabit the planet Deneb IV, and are a relatively primitive people. Their planet is resource poor, although it does provide abundant geothermal energy. In 2364 the Bandi offered Starfleet the use of a lavish and highly advanced spaceport which they claimed to have constructed, a mystery as the facility was clearly well beyond their ability to create. The Enterprise-D's first mission was to solve the mystery. As it transpired, the Bandi had captured a wounded shapeshifting lifeform and forced it to assume the shape of the station in order that they might profit from it. Captain Picard freed the creature.21 Encounter at Farpoint
Banean22 Enemies of the Numiri, the Banea punish murderers by giving them a memory implant which forces them to re-live their crime periodically from the point of view of the victim. The Banea assisted Voyager on its journey back to the alpha quadrant.22 Ex Post Facto
Baneriam Hawk23 Predatory bird23 If Wishes Were Horses
Bardakian Pronghorn Moose24 Animal famed for having an exceptionally loud call24 Unification, Part 1
Bardeezan25 A Bardeezan merchant ship was suspected of abducting Gul Dukat from Deep Space 9 in 2370.25 The Maquis, Part 1
Barkonian26 A primitive species which mistook Data for a native of their planet.26 Thine Own Self
Barolian27 Species which took part in trade negotiations with the Romulans in 2364.24 The Barolians took delivery of a Vulcan deflector system for the Romulans in 2368.28 Various Next Generation episodes
Barrowbug29 Insect life form native to Bajor. Barrowbugs live in mounds, and swarm forth if the mound is kicked over.29 They are somewhat reminiscent of Earth cockroaches, though they are fist-sized and can spit an acidic venom.30 Ties of Blood and Water
Barzan31 A humanoid species native to Barzan II in the Alpha Quadrant. The Barzan were relatively primitive and resource poor; when an apparently stable wormhole was discovered in their system in 2366 they hoped to sell the rights over it to one of the major powers for a vast sum. Independent negotiator Devinoni Ral was able to win the negotiations, though it transpired that only the Barzan end of the wormhole was actually stable, making it next to useless as a transport conduit.31 The Price
Bat32 Flying rodent native to Terra. Similar animals are found on other planets32 The Reckoning
Beauregard33 Plant cared for by Sulu on the USS Enterprise. Beauregard was about a foot tall and was capable of making a high pitched noise and considerable movement. It reacted badly to the presence of the M113 Creature.33 The Man Trap
Belzoidian Flea34 Creature familiar to Q34 Deja Q
Benkaran35 Many Benkarans are sentenced to death for murder by the Nygeans.35 Repentance
Benthan36 A Benthan was forced to participate in a body swap with Steth.36 Vis-a-Vis
Benzites37 Also known as Benzenites,38 these humanoids are inhabitants of the planet Benzar.37 Benzites live underground in large geostructures, and all Benzites from the same geostructure look so identical that even they cannot say how they tell each other apart.37 Benzites at one time had to wear a breathing aid when in a standard Oxygen-Nitrogen atmosphere,39 but by 2372 medical advances had rendered this device obsolete.40 Benzites took part in the Starfleet officer exchange program of the early 2360's. Ensign Mendon served on board the Enterprise-D, where he helped to solve the problem presented by a subatomic life form which threatened the ship.39 Several Benzites made notable contributions to the Federation, including Mordock, creator of the Mordock Strategy. In 2364 he was the the first Benzite to join Starfleet Academy, edging out several Federation candidates.37 Coming of Age
Berellian41 Sentient species. Lieutenant Commander Hobson considered that the nature of Berellians was such that nobody would consider them to be competent engineers.42

Jake once hustled a Berellian at Dom-Jot.43
Redemption, Part 2
Berengarian Dragon44 Reptilian creature which was capable of flying even though they could reach more than 200 metres in length, and which could breathe fire. Discovered in the early 2100s by the Vulcans on Berengaria VII, the existence of the creatures was long doubted.45 Spock saw the dragons of Berengaria VII on one occasion.44 This Side of Paradise
Berserker Cat46 Felinoid known for having great courage.46 Let He Who Is Without Sin...
Beta Runner Cloud47 Sentient gaseous being which lived in deep space but was able to posses a Humanoid body47 Lonely Among Us
Beta XII-A Entity48 Unknown non-corporeal alien which thrived on negative emotions, and used it's powers to promote violence in order to create them.48 Day of the Dove
Betazoids21 Betazoids are one of the most Humanoid species yet encountered; externally they are indistinguishable from Humans even at close range, differing only in that all Betazoids have a black iris in their eyes.27 All Betazoids are natural telepaths thanks to the paracortex, the Betazoid telepathic lobe49; most develop this ability in adolescence, but a few are born with their telepathic abilities already active. Unable to screen out the noise of other peoples minds, these individuals generally suffer mental problems of varying severity.50 In general, normal Betazoids develop the ability to protect themselves from psychic trauma through the function of the part of their psyche known as the meta conscious - though severe trauma can overcome this protection.49

Betazoids can cross-breed with Humans, although this often affects the telepathic abilities of the offspring - sometimes the children of such a union develop empathic rather than telepathic abilities.51 All full Betazoids are unable to read the thoughts of Ferengi, Breen, Ullians or Dopterians,52 but some half Betazoids have been occasionally successful in sensing the emotions of some of these species.53

Betazoid society is martiarchal in nature, with considerable similarities to the female-dominated world of Angel One.54 They tend toward more formal and elaborate traditions and ceremonies than 24th century Earth; for instance titles such as 'daughter of Fifth House, holder of the sacred chalice of Rixx, heir to the holy rings of Betazed' are still carried by some Betazoids.55

At one point in history it became fashionable for Betazoid women to wear large elaborate wigs which contained cages holding small animals. The practice came to an end when one woman took a public stand and refused to go along with the fashion, considering it uncomfortable for the woman and cruel for the animal.56

Arranged marriages are the norm on Betazed, with the arrangement usually agreed between the parents of both parties whilst the couple are still children. Indeed, it is not unknown for couples not to meet until shortly before their wedding. The preparations for the ceremony begin when a 'gift box' is sent to the bride, announcing verbally that the marriage is imminent. Traditional Betazoid weddings are carried out with both the couple and all guests naked.55

The telepathic abilities of Betazoids makes dishonesty rather moot amongst them; many Betazoids pride themselves on being completely honest and speaking their mind forthrightly at all times.55

A Federation member, Betazed has enjoyed a relatively untroubled history for the last few centuries. This peaceful existence came to a halt in 2374, when the Dominion invaded and occupied the planet.57 The invasion was ended by the following year when the Dominion forces surrendered at the end of the war with the Allies.58

Encounter at Farpoint
Betelgeusians59 Federation members native to the planet Betelgeuse II, the Betelgeusians are a humanoid species who evolved from a race of leopard-like eagles. They have claws and bones similar to those of an Earth Condor, though they walk erect.60 Generic official information
Bilanan19 Probable species name for the inhabitants of Bilana III. A Bilanan, Dr. Ja'Dar, developed the Soliton wave drive in 2368.19 New Ground
Bluehorn61 Animal life form native to the Skagaran planet discovered in the Delphic Expanse by the NX-01 Enterprise.61 North Star
Bok-rat62 Klingon rodent62 Soldiers of the Empire
Bolians63 Federation members from the planet Bolarus IX,64 the Bolians are recognizable by their blue or bluish-grey skin, and by the raised ridge which runs up the middle of their faces.27 The males of this species are bald,27 but the females grow hair similar to Humans on their heads.64 Bolians have a have a cartilaginous lining on their tounge that protects them from even the most corrosive of acids.65

Many Bolians serve in Starfleet; Captain Rixx was one of the most renowned officers in the fleet, and in 2364 was involved in countering the attempt by alien parasites to subvert Starfleet.63 During Wolf 359 the tactical officer of the USS Saratoga was a Bolian,11 while others of this race have served in more low level roles - for example the Bolian Mot served as a barber on the Enterprise-D.7 Ambassador Vadosia, an important Bolian diplomat, visited Deep Space Nine in 2369.66 In 2366 an alien species imitated Bolian Starfleet cadet Minena Haro in an attempt to study concepts of authority, but the ruse was quickly uncovered by Captain Picard.64

Boraalan67 Primative species, subject of a prime directive violation by the Captain Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise crew.67 Homeward
Boranian68 Probable species name for the people encountered on Boranis III. The species was decimated by an infectious disease as a punishment for resisting the Dominion. Dr. Bashir was able to produce a treatment which would prevent the disease being passed on to the next generation.68 The Quickening
Bore worm69 Species which lays their eggs in a person's ear.69 Rogue Planet
Borg70 The Borg represent one of the most serious known threats to the Federation, and indeed to all species in this galaxy.71 Little is known about their origins; their combination of biology and technology has been evolving for thousands of centuries.70 At some point they began to 'network' their minds together into a single species-wide consciousness - the Borg Collective.71 Unfortunately, this collective mind had little regard for individuality; it embarked on a program to assimilate into itself any species it considered useful, by force if necessary.70

There are many variations between Borg drones, optimising them for their various roles,72 but most drones share certain common features. Their bodies are covered with a leather-like substence crisscrossed by varius tubes and mechanical appliances. One eye - most often the left - is usually replaced with a holographic viewing system, 73 while the right forearm is often replaced with a mechanical appendage.70 Borg have a built-in replicator unit which can create or modify their mechanical systems as required and synthesize nutrients for their organic systems. Drones carry a supply of nanoprobes which they inject into other lifeforms; these nanoprobes rapidly begin to construct machinery in the victim, beginning the assimilation process.74 The Borg rely on an onboard power cell for energy, and this must be recharged periodically.73 The two features shared by every known Borg are a shield system and a subspace transceiver which keeps the links between the drones intact; it is this network of links which comprises the collective itself.75

In 2364 a Borg vessel is known to have passed through both Federation and Romulan space, destroying outposts of both powers. The Borg chose not to attack the Federation at this time,76 presumably because they where on their way to some other more urgent location. In 2365 the Enterprise-D was flung into system J-25 by Q, where they encountered a Borg vessel. The Borg sent scouts to probe the Enterprise - the first of these was quickly killed, but subsequent drones proved to have a shield device which was immune to phaser fire. The Borg ship subsequently attempted to assimilate the Enterprise, but their cube was quickly disabled by the Federation vessel. However, an away team sent to the Borg ship discovered that the collective was rapidly regenerating its ship. The Enterprise attempted to depart the area before further conflict ensued, but the borg gave chase. As with the drones, further attacks by the Enterprise proved to have no effect on the Borg vessel.70 Later analysis showed that when the a Borg is attacked the collective mind analyses the destruction of individual drones and creates a defence, which all drones then add to their own systems77 via their replicators. Their ships operate on similar principles.77 The Borg vessel nearly destroyed the Enterprise, but Q intervened to save the ship.70 However, the Borg have displayed a good degree of persistence and since this time have launched two invasions of the Federation - one in 236677 and once in 2373 - causing massive loss of life before being narrowly defeated.74

Recently the Borg have encountered the life form they refer to as "Species 8472". Species 8472 proved both to be invulnerable to Borg nanoprobes and to have superior technology. In response to a Borg invasion of their space species 8472 nearly destroyed the Borg;78 with the help of modified nanoprobes from the USS Voyager the Borg where able to force Species 8472 to disengage and retreat from the conflict.79

Voyager had several subsequent encounters with the Borg.80 On one occasion the Voyager crew was able to spread a computer virus amongst the Borg which enabled drones to rebel against the collective, causing great disruption to the group mind,81 In 2377 Janeway used a Borg transwarp hub to finally return Voyager to the Alpha Quadrant. The hub and a large section of a Borg Unimatrix was destroyed in the process.82

Borgia Plant33 Poisonous plant native to planet M-113. The plant was classed by the Federation as carbon group three vegetation, similar to the Earth nightshade family. It contained an alkaloid poison of a chemical structure found on most Class M planets. In 2266 Enterprise Crewman Darnell was claimed by Nancy Crater to have died due to eating a Borgia plant, though in fact this was not the case.33 The Man Trap
Boslic92 A spacefaring species seen in the alpha quadrant, the Boslics were divided into at least two different subspecies. One had a smooth forehead with an angular mark above the nose43, whilst the other had a more ridged and crenellated appearance.93 In the 2150s Boslics were known to deal in slaves, and some could be seen at the Orion slave market on Verex III.94Boslic freighters were seen at Deep Space Nine after the Federation took over the administration of the station in 2369.95 In 2371 a female Boslic trader sold Quark the remains of a ship which contained a Jem'Hadar baby.43 The following year a Boslic freighter was found to be involved in a smuggling operation by Worf's brother Kurn.96

Boslics were known to be very widely travelled, with some appearing even as far as the Delta quadrant.97

The Sons of Mogh
Botha98 Delta Quadrant life form which used powerful telepathy to attack the crew of the USS Voyager in 2372.98 A member of this species was a drug dealer on a station in the Necrit Expanse.99 Persistence of Vision
Bre'el34 The Bre'el were threatened when their moon began to fall out of orbit, but were saved by Q.34 Deja Q
Breen100 A powerful and mysterious Alpha Quadrant species,8 the Breen are one of the very few major species who have evolved on a non class M world. The Breen home world is widely stated to have an extremely low average temperature, and has been called a frozen wasteland101 - though the Vorta Weyoun once claimed that it was nothing of the sort.102 The Breen have evolved with a unique physiology in order to cope with their environment; although they breathe a fairly standard oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere at close to normal pressure, the Breen have no blood or other liquid circulatory system.103 The Breen reproductive cycle is also unusual, in that they commonly produce offspring at a very early age.104

Given that most known major space faring species live on class M planets with an average temperature far above that of Breen, the Breen have had to develop environmental suits in order to co-exist with others.8 Given their nature, it is understandable that the Breen have become one of the Alpha Quadrants leading experts at creating and maintaining extremely cold environments. They are acknowledged experts on cold storage of chemical compounds.

Given the environmental difficulties, casual visits to Breen worlds by non-Breen are virtually impossible. The Breen strongly discourage visitors, and all those who do visit Breen worlds are confined to purpose designed encampments. Combined with the fact that the Breen habitually design environmental suits which hide their faces from view, this has given them their air of mystery. This has been further enhanced by the fact that some empathic species, most notably Betazoids, are unable to detect the thoughts or emotions of the Breen.105

Nevertheless, many small bits of information have been discovered about the Breen over the years. They have developed organic technology to the point where they routinely use biological spacecraft.78 Some of these are fitted with cloaking devices, and they use disruptor type weaponry rather than the phaser technology used by the Federation.100

The Breen have something of an aggressive history; Breen privateers have conducted raids against other species on several occasions, including the bajoran colony of Free Haven in 2372.106 In 2366 the Breen attacked and captured the Cardassian vessel Ravinok, using its crew as slave labour in the Dilithium mines on Dozaria.107 The reputation of this curious species has been summed up by the Romulan saying "Never turn your back on a Breen".108

In 2375 the Breen moved from a policy of low level hostility toward the other major powers to one of open warfare when they allied themselves to the Dominion.109 As well as their conventional forces they brought to the alliance a unique weapon - a form of energy damping system which could completely drain all the main power systems of a Starship. The weapon proved decisive in the second battle of Chin'Toka, allowing the Dominion to retake the system after inflicting huge losses on the Allies.102 Fortunately the Allies were subsequently able to capture an example of the Breen weapon along with the technicians who installed it, allowing them to develop countermeasures.110

The Breen continued to fight with the Dominion until the end. In some respects this actually worked to the benefit of the Allies - the Dominion's increasing reliance on the Breen made the Cardassians feel more and more isolated and abandoned and was a contributory factor in their eventual split from the Dominion.102 When the Dominion surrendered the Breen were left with little choice but to do likewise rather than face the prospect of open warfare with the Federation, Klingon, Romulan and Cardassian forces simultaneously.

Brekkian111 Humanoid civilisation native to the planet Brekkia. The Brekkians had only one industry, the supply of the narcotic Felicium to the Ornarans.111 Symbiosis
Brenari112 A telepathic species persecuted by the Devore. A group of Brenari refugees were assisted by Voyager.112 Counterpoint
Brenari112 Telepathic Delta Quadrant species. Voyager sheltered a dozen Brenari refugees from the Devore Imperium.112 Counterpoint
Briori113 Humanoid species native to the Delta Quadrant113 The 37's
Brunali114 Delta Quadrant species. The Brunali were decimated by repeated Borg attacks; they infected some of their own people, including Icheb, with a pathogen which could damage the colelctive and deliberately allowed them to be assimilated.114 Child's Play
Brunyg115 Members of this species were to be seen on Deep Space Nine on occasion.11 Star Trek - The Lost Years 7 : The Buried Age
Bulgallian sludge rat37 Unpleasant creature. Rondon compared Wesley Crusher to a Bulgallian sludge rat when he bumped into Wesley in a corridor. Later, Wesley considered recreating the creatures on the holodeck as a way to frighten himself.37 Coming of Age
Bunny Rabbit116 Earth animal sometimes imagined in the shape of nebula clouds116 Imaginary Friend
Buranian117 Culture whose pottery resembles both Marlonian and Taguan work.117 Rascals
Bynars118 Originating on the planet Bynaus, the Bynars are one of the few cybernetic species known. Unlike the Borg the Bynars are a benign species, and many have served on Federation Starbases as computer experts. The Bynars are heavily dependant on computers, to the extent that their thought processes are as close to binary as is possible for an organic being. Indeed, they are unable to live without the central computer system on their world which inter links them all.

This led to a controversial incident in 2364; the Bynars sun, Beta Magellan, went nova in this year. Having predicted this shortly before, the Bynars knew they would have to totally shut down their computer system to ensure its survival. Desperate to preserve their species from extinction, the Bynars needed a large computer system which they could use to back up their computers to. They decided that the ideal choice would be the computer core of a Galaxy class starship, which was one of the most powerful in existence at the time. Unfortunately, the Bynars decided that they could not risk the chance that the Federation would refuse to help. They therefore decided to hijack the Enterprise-D whilst it stopped off at Starbase 74 for maintenance.

During their upgrading of the ships computer system, the Bynars engineered a weakening of the ships antimatter containment system. The ship was set on autopilot and directed out away from the station, whereupon the Bynars took control and headed for their home world. Unfortunately the Enterprise had been slightly late arriving at the Starbase, and the Bynars did not reach their system in time to reboot their computers.

Having anticipated this, the Bynars had arranged for Commander Riker and Captain Picard to be distracted on a holodeck during the entire affair, and on arrival the officers were able to reactivate the Bynar computer system and revive the species.118
Byzallian119 Species which was due to hold a cenference on Deep Space Nine in 2371.119 Defiant
Byzatium119 Spacefaring species. Six Byzatium transports arrived at Deep Space Nine in 2371.119 Defiant
