Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : Vaadwaur1
Quadrant : Delta

Encountered by Voyager in the Delta Quadrant in 2376, the Vaadwaur were a significant power in the region approximately one thousand years ago. The basis of their power was the network of underspace corridors which they had discovered, allowing travel at speeds in excess of twenty million times the speed of light. The Vaadwaur used this network to travel over great distances, both trading and warring with many other races.

Unfortunately, the Vaadwaur warred far more than they traded. They were hated by many species, and almost nine hundred years ago an alliance of various species - including the Turei - attacked and virtually destroyed the Vaadwaur. Their home world was heavily bombed by plasma charges and rendered highly radioactive, and for many centuries it was thought that they had become extinct.

In fact, the Vaadwaur preserved some of their population in stasis on their home world. They had planned to re-emerge in five years, at which time they expected the alliance which had defeated them to have collapsed. Unfortunately, damage to the control system of their stasis tubes kept them in suspended animation until Voyager freed them.

The Vaadwaur continued their aggressive policies once revived, planning to seize Voyager and use it to help them rebuild their forces again. This resulted in a brief but fierce battle in the atmosphere of their home world in which Voyager destroyed several Vaadwaur attack ships and assisted the Turei in destroying many more. However, some Vaadwaur ships did escape into the underspace corridors and remain at large.1
