Sikarians

Notes

Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : Sikarians1
Quadrant : Delta

One of the many species that Voyager has encountered on its journey home, the Sikarians are in some respects significantly more advanced than the Federation. They are renowned in the Delta Quadrant as a friendly and generous people who extend great hospitality to visitors, and were happy to entertain Voyagers crew. Indeed, from the limited contact that Voyager had with the Sikarians it appeared that they had solved all of their material problems and were largely concerned with overcoming the boredom which resulted.

The Sikarians advanced technology is most apparent in their trajector system. This is a form of matter transmission similar in its operation to Federation transporters. However, the Sikarian planet has a mantle of tetrahedral quarts 20 kilometres thick; by using this to amplify their trajector field, the Sikarians have achieved field magnitudes ten orders of magnitude beyond anything the Federation has, allowing them to instantaneously transport objects up to 40,000 light years.

Voyager was naturally keen to use this technology, but the Sikarian culture has a policy similar to the Federations Prime Directive which forbids them from lending such help. Captain Janeway offered the Sikarian ruling council a copy of the Federation literary database in return for the use of the trajector - the Sikarians prize stories greatly, but although this offer was tempting it was ultimately refused. Several of Voyagers crew set up negotiations with dissident Sikarians and purchased a trajector unit in return for the database, an act in direct violation of Janeways orders. Although the trade was successful, the trajector technology proved to be incompatible with Voyagers systems due to its dependence on antineutrinos.

Although Voyager has made several significant leaps forward in her journey since this time, it is still technically within range of the Sikarians trajector system. Nevertheless there have been no further contacts with the Sikarians.1
