Xindi Arboreals

NotesImagesDatapoints
TimelinePeople
Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : Xindi Arboreals1
Political Affiliation : Xindi2
Quadrant : Alpha

The alien probe which launched a devastating attack on earth was, initially at least, a total mystery. No trace of it's area of origin could be found, and no clue as to who had sent it.3

Fortunately, the mystery was soon resolved at least in part. Information from the Suliban indicated that a species called the Xindi had sent the probe. The NX class Enterprise was sent to locate the Xindi in a region of space called "The Expanse", a dangerous area filled with anomalies.3

The Xindi proved to be not one but five separate intelligent species, all of which had evolved on a single planet.4 The five had evolved a complex relationship over time, with alliances forming and shifting constantly. Wars between two or more members were not unknown, and indeed one such war had resulted in the destruction of the Xindi homeworld - and the extinction of a sixth branch of the species, the Avians.1

Xindi Arboreals were one of the more Humanoid of the Xindi. Rather hirsute in appearance, the Arboreals tended to be more peaceful than the Reptilians and Insectoids. Some of the Arboreals proved to be allies of the Human effort to end hostilities with the Xindi.1
