Species 116

star trek species 116

Species 116 was the Borg designation for a Delta Quadrant species whose original name is unknown.

This species had a natural ability to almost instantly learn any language. Its members became fluent in a language after hearing only a few phrases. They could also quickly decipher cryptographic patterns. Their level of technology was very advanced; they employed a sophisticated form of faster than light propulsion unknown to Star Fleet called quantum slipstream drive. They also had particle synthesis technology, an extremely advanced form of holographic replication technology.

However, their abilities and technological prowess made the species an extremely attractive target for the Borg to assimilate. For centuries the Borg attempted to do so and failed, the species always managing to stay one step ahead of them. But eventually, the Borg began gaining ground, until they were on the brink of succeeding. The species' last hope rested on the expected destruction of the Borg by Species 8472 . But due to intervention by the Federation Starship USS Voyager in 2374, the Borg defeated Species 8472 . The Borg then returned their attention to Species 116 and succeeded in assimilating it. Only ten or twenty thousand were able to escape.

The USS Voyager encountered a surviving member of the species named Arturis, in 2374. He tried to lure Voyager into Borg space for her and her crew to be assimilated in revenge, but his plan backfired and he was presumed to have been assimilated instead.

Borg Species Designations

For thousands of years the Borg spread throughout the galaxy, conquering, assimilating, and thus destroying countless civilizations. Following every encounter, the Borg catalogue each new species with a numerical designation, rather than a proper name. The goal of the Borg, in most cases, was to completely assimilate each species by incorporating their knowledge and technology into the unified Borg Collective. One by one, each living being was converted into Borg drones. In many cases, all that remained of an assimilated civilization was the memory of its unique contributions that resided only within the accumulated knowledge of the Borg. That, and the numerical species designation. Often even the name is lost, forgotten or deleted as irrelevant. Conversely, the species designations gave a sense of the long and terrible history of the Borg and the thousands of species they encountered and absorbed.

Species designation: 116 | 125 | 149 | 180 | 218 | 259 | 262 | 263 | 312 | 329 | 521 | 571 | 689 | 2461 | 3259 | 4228 | 5174 | 5618 | 6291 | 6339 | 6961 | 8472 | 10026

SPECIES 116

A technologically sophisticated humanoid civilization from the Delta Quadrant . Members of this species were gifted linguists, some knowing several thousand languages. The Borg spent several centuries trying to assimilate Species 116, but they were outwitted and eluded the Borg until 2374, when the Borg abducted all but about 20,000 individuals. Arturis was a member of Species 116 who had escaped assimilation but later was captured after his plans to lure the U.S.S. Voyager NCC-74656 to the Borg failed. [ 7 ]

SPECIES 125

The species the Borg Queen encountered by the Voyager in 2374 came from. No other information about this race was known. [ 10 ]

SPECIES 149

Civilization assimilated by the Borg that had advanced medical technology, including a method for reversing cellular necrosis, thus allowing the Borg to reactivate drones as much as 73 hours after “death.” This technique was used by Seven of Nine aboard the Voyager to revive Neelix . [ 4 ]

SPECIES 180: Ferengi

The Ferengi . It is not known why the Ferengi, an Alpha Quadrant race, has such a low species number, which would imply that they were encountered and catalogued very early in the Borg’s existence. [ 8 ]

SPECIES 218: Talaxians

The Talaxian race, of the Delta Quadrant; catalogued by the Borg when a small freighter containing a crew of 39 was taken in the Dolmine Sector. The Talaxians were easily assimilated, and their dense musculature made them excellent drones. [ 2 ]

SPECIES 259

Technologically advanced omnicordial lifeform that inhabited Galactic Cluster 3. This species developed the pattern-duplication design that was at the heart of the Borg autonomous regeneration sequencers. [ 3 ]

SPECIES 262

A primitive Delta Quadrant culture assimilated by the Borg around 2145. Their oral history referred to a powerful substance which could “burn the sky.” The Borg were intrigued, and they followed a trail of myth through several cultures until it learned about the Omega molecule . [ 6 ]

SPECIES 263

A primitive Delta Quadrant culture assimilated by the Borg around 2145. Species 263 believed the Omega molecule was a drop of blood from their creator. [ 6 ]

SPECIES 312

A Delta Quadrant civilization assimilated by the Borg several centuries before 2374. Species 312 developed tetrion-flux technology that could create an energy barrier undetectable by conventional sensors. Apparently this species had constructed such an energy barrier on the planet Ledos over the southern sub-continent in order to protect the primitive Ventu people from intrusion by the more advanced Ledosians. [ 18 ]

SPECIES 329: Kazon

The Kazon race, of the Delta Quadrant. The Borg encountered a Kazon colony in the Gand Sector, Grid 6920, but considered the race unworthy of assimilation because their biological and technological distinctiveness was unremarkable. [ 12 ]

SPECIES 521: Shivolians

The Shivolian race, of the Delta Quadrant. A female member of this species visited the Voyager while the ship was docked at a Markonian Outpost in 2375. [ 14 ]

SPECIES 571

A species that worshipped the supernatural deity Brothara, and frowned upon the desecration of dead bodies. P’Chan , whose Borg designation was Four of Nine, was from this species. [ 14 ]

SPECIES 689: Norcadians

The Norcadian race, of the Delta Quadrant. [ 15 ]

SPECIES 2461: Brunali

The Brunali race, of the Delta Quadrant. [ 15 ] The Brunali world was located near a Borg transwarp conduit and had been attacked three times in ten years; each time the Borg wiped out the society they had worked hard to rebuild. This race had developed sophisticated techniques in agricultural genetics which allowed them to grow crops in inhospitable environments, and they used the same science to engineer an anti-Borg pathogen that they implanted into the genetic code of some of their children, including Icheb . [ 16 ]

SPECIES 3259: Vulcans

The Vulcan race, of the Alpha Quadrant. The Vulcan’s enlarged neocortex produced superior analytical abilities. [ 2 ]

SPECIES 4228: Hazari

The Hazari race, of the Delta Quadrant. Technologically advanced, extremely violent, the Hazari made excellent tactical drones. Other races often hired them as bounty hunters. [ 11 ]

SPECIES 5174

A spacefaring Delta Quadrant civilization. The Borg once encountered a small ship of this species where the occupants were gutted in a complete osteomy, their entire skeletons surgically removed along with musculature, ligaments, tendons and internal organs. The Borg never determined the perpetrators, considering it irrelevant, but it was apparently the Hirogen . [ 5 ]

SPECIES 5618: Humans

The Human race, of the Alpha Quadrant. Considered by the Borg to possess below-average cranial capacity, minimal redundant systems and limited regenerative abilities. But several attempts to assimilate this species failed, provoking the Borg’s interest. [ 9 ]

SPECIES 5973

Gaseous lifeform native to Galactic Cluster 8. [ 17 ]

SPECIES 6291: Yridians

The Yridian race. The Borg had determined that the Yridians were extinct, as had the Federation , but exo-biologist Rudy Ransom made contact with the race, proving otherwise; Ransom was promoted to captain and given command of the U.S.S. Equinox NCC-72381 as a result of the accomplishment. [ 13 ]

SPECIES 6339

Warp -capable humanoid species that originated in Grid 124, Octant-22-theta. They first encountered the Borg c.2371, and in four years, 11 billion of their people were assimilated. In 2375, the Collective intercepted one of their last remaining shuttlecraft and assimilated the 13 people aboard. It turned out that those 13 individuals were sacrificing themselves, as they were carrying a synthetic pathogen that the race had developed to retaliate against the Borg. That virus was originally a biological agent but mutated and attacked the Borg Cube’s Vinculum as it would living cells, and through the Vinculum it was passed on to all drones on the Cube. The pathogen caused thousands of drones to randomly manifest hundreds of thousands of personalities, leading to chaos among the drones and, ultimately, the destruction of their Cube. [ 8 ]

SPECIES 6961: Ktarians

The Ktarian race, of the Alpha Quadrant. A drone originating from this species was studied close up on a Cube by Magnus Hansen . [ 9 ]

SPECIES 8472: Undine

The Undine [ 19 ] were a sophisticated lifeform from an extra-dimensional realm of fluidic space . Species 8472 has an extremely dense genetic structure and an extraordinarily powerful immune system; almost anything that penetrated their cells was instantly destroyed, including chemical, biological, or technological intruders. [ 1 ] In late 2373, the Borg discovered fluidic space and learned that Species 8472 possessed organic spacecraft and a biogenically-engineered weapons technology that was superior to anything known to the Borg. Seeking to assimilate this civilization and its technology, the Borg launched an attack on the fluidic space realm, only to be repelled by Species 8472. [ 2 ] Shortly thereafter, Species 8472 launched a retaliatory strike, sending hundreds of powerful bioships into the Delta Quadrant with the goal of eliminating all lifeforms from the galaxy, destroying entire planets and fleets in Borg-occupied space. The 8472 assault was halted when the Starship Voyager collaborated with the Borg to use new nanoprobe technology the crew had developed, a weapon against which the species had no effective defense. [ 1 ] It was in the midst of the 8472 battle that Seven of Nine came aboard Voyager and was later severed from the Collective. [ 2 ]

SPECIES 10026

A species from Grid 532 in the Delta Quadrant with a population of 392,000 that was assimilated in mid-2375. The Borg Queen tried to force Seven of Nine to help assimilate this race, but Seven instead arranged the escape of four individuals. [ 10 ]

Star Trek: Voyager (TV Series)

Hope and fear (1998), ray wise: arturis, photos .

Kate Mulgrew, Jeri Ryan, and Ray Wise in Star Trek: Voyager (1995)

Quotes 

Arturis : You negotiated an agreement with the Borg Collective: safe passage through their space, and in return you helped them defeat one of their enemies.

Seven of Nine : Species 8472.

Arturis : In your colorful language, yes, Species 8472. Did it ever occur to you that there were those of us in the Delta Quadrant with a vested interest in that war? Victory would have meant annihilation of the Borg, but you couldn't see beyond the bow of your own ship!

Capt. Kathryn Janeway : In my estimation, Species 8472 posed a greater threat than the Borg.

Arturis : Who are you to make that decision? A stranger to this quadrant!

Capt. Kathryn Janeway : There wasn't exactly time to take a poll. I had to act quickly.

Arturis : My people managed to elude the Borg for centuries - outwitting them, always one step ahead - but in recent years, the Borg began to weaken our defenses, they were closing in, and Species 8472 was our last hope to defeat them. You took that away from us! The outer colonies were the first to fall, twenty-three in a matter of hours. Our sentry vessels tossed aside, no defense against the storm, and, by the time they surrounded our star system, hundreds of cubes. We had already surrendered to our own terror. A few of us managed to survive - ten, twenty thousand. I was fortunate, I escaped with a vessel, alone, but alive. I don't blame them. They were just drones, acting with their collective instinct. You! You had a choice!

Arturis : Are you... Borg?

Seven of Nine : Yes.

Arturis : Hm. You're much more attractive than the average drone.

Arturis : The Borg Collective is like a force of nature. You don't feel anger toward a storm on the horizon. You just avoid it.

Capt. Kathryn Janeway : [referring to Arturis]  Have you encountered his people before?

Seven of Nine : Species 116.

Arturis : Is *that* what you call us?

Seven of Nine : Yes. The Borg has never been able to assimilate them - not yet.

Arturis : Ah! Here it is. It's a simple matter of extracting the iconometric elements, and triaxilating a recursion matrix.

Capt. Kathryn Janeway : Now, why didn't I think of that?

Arturis : Some species are born with great physical prowess, others, like yours, with a generosity of spirit. My people can see patterns where others see only confusion.

History and specifications [ ]

Species 116 [ ].

Columbia class dorsal

Enterprise NX-01 .

In the year 2151 , the United Earth Starfleet vessel Enterprise NX-01 was the first Human spacecraft with the revolutionary warp 5 engine . ( ENT episode & novelization : Broken Bow )

Conceived by Arturis of Species 116 in 2374 , the class prototype USS Dauntless was a fake Starfleet ship built to fool the crew of USS Voyager , in revenge for Captain Kathryn Janeway 's interference in the war between the Borg and Species 8472 . Arturis, one of the few survivors his people , created the USS Dauntless through particle synthesis , a mechanism beyond Starfleet 's understanding at the time. He held them responsible for the assimilation of his species at the hands of the Borg Collective by stopping Species 8472 from annihilating the Borg in 2373 . Arturis and his faux Starfleet ship ended up assimilated after Janeway and Seven of Nine foiled his plot, but Voyager retained the ship's specs. ( VOY episode : " Hope and Fear ")

Dauntless viewscreen

The first Dauntless in 2374 .

A Dauntless -class starship was 205 meters long. ( The Official Starships Collection Issue 17: "USS Dauntless")

The exposure to the Dauntless systems enabled Starfleet to develop its own quantum slipstream drive a year later. ( VOY episode : " Timeless ")

Starfleet [ ]

By 2379 , the experimental slipstream drive was integrated into several vessels. ( VOY novel : Full Circle )

Dauntless-80816

The USS Dauntless (NCC-80816) in 2384 .

Dauntless NX-47700

Starfleet's USS Dauntless prototype in 2410 .

A Dauntless -class [6] ship operated under the command of Vice Admiral Janeway in 2384 . Janeway's ship was on a mission to find the USS Protostar , another Starfleet vessel missing in the Delta Quadrant. Its spaceframe was modified compared to the NX-01-A, including a mushroom gill-like section at the aft of the primary hull , and elongated warp nacelles . ( PRD episode : " A Moral Star, Part 2 ")

The design in its original appearance was adapted by the Starfleet Corps of Engineers [3] and put into mass-production as a genuine Starfleet science vessel in 2410 as part of Operation Delta Rising . The Dauntless class was equipped with a particle synthesis console. ( STO - Delta Rising mission : " Welcome to Earth Spacedock ")

That technology was reminiscent of the holographic emitters employed on the USS Incursion and Shadow -class science vessels in the 2370s. ( ST video game : Armada II )

Initially, a ship of the class required a minimum commanding officer 's rank of vice admiral or higher. ( STO - Klingon War mission : " Welcome to Earth Spacedock ")

In 2554 , the USS Dauntless was one of the ships taking part in the Battle of Procyon V between the Federation, led by the USS Enterprise -J , and the Temporal Liberation Front . ( STO - Future Proof mission : " Ragnarok ")

Alternate timeline [ ]

Dauntless class Procyon

The Battle of Procyon V .

In a timeline where the Delphic Expanse was not destroyed in 2154 , a Dauntless -class starship participated in the Battle of Procyon V in the 26th century . In this battle the Federation defeated the Sphere Builders . ( ENT episode : " Azati Prime ")

In the 25th century, the design of the Dauntless -class experimental science vessel allowed its commanding officer to choose from different designs of livery, which could be modified further at starbases . These options were designated Type 1-7, Upgrade and Veteran. ( STO - Klingon War mission : " Welcome to Earth Spacedock ")

Furthermore, the installation of deflector shields from specific factions modified the hull appearance, including shields from the Reman Resistance , the Breen Confederacy and the Dominion . ( STO missions : " Coliseum ", " Cold Storage ", " Boldly They Rode ")

  • Dr. Kovich in Star Trek: Discovery may be a Lanthanite like Commander Pelia in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
  • Lanthanites, a new alien species in Star Trek, have extremely long lifespans and remained hidden on Earth for centuries.
  • The connection between Pelia and Dr. Kovich's secretive nature suggests a deeper link between the two characters yet to be revealed.

The answer to a big Star Trek: Discovery mystery could be found in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds . Star Trek: Discovery 's Dr. Kovich (David Cronenberg) is an enigma that has yet to be unraveled. First appearing in Star Trek: Discovery season 3, Kovich boasts a significant amount of authority within the United Federation of Planets. Kovich questions the crew of the USS Discovery alongside Starfleet's Admiral Charles Vance (Oded Fehr) after Discovery's forward time jump to the 32nd century. Kovich knows quite a lot of classified information about the Star Trek timeline but reveals very little about himself, sparking speculation about who Kovich really is and just how much he knows.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 2 introduces Commander Pelia (Carol Kane), an instructor at Starfleet Academy who becomes the USS Enterprise's new Chief Engineer. A collector of antiquities, Pelia suffuses Engineering with a refreshing combination of whimsical joy and deep wisdom. Despite appearing human, Pelia's distinctive accent tips off Ensign Nyota Uhura (Celia Rose Gooding) that Pelia is a Lanthanite, a Star Trek species notable for their extremely long lifespans. At first glance, Pelia and Kovich couldn't be more different, but the things that they have in common explain how Star Trek: Strange New Worlds might have the answer to Dr. Kovich's identity.

Kovich Is A Mystery Discovery Season 5 Must Solve

Star Trek: Discovery season 5 is the perfect opportunity to answer the backlog of questions about the secretive, all-knowing Dr. Kovich.

Is Star Trek: Discoverys Dr. Kovich A Lanthanite Like Strange New Worlds Commander Pelia?

Dr. kovich seems like a man out of time.

There are signs that Star Trek: Discovery 's Dr. Kovich could be a long-lived Lanthanite like Commander Pelia from Star Trek: Strange New Worlds . Kovich's wardrobe and dark-rimmed glasses are unusually modern for Star Trek . Kovich's knowledge about Star Trek 's Mirror Universe , which drifted from the Prime universe over 500 years ago, is suspiciously vast for a 32nd-century denizen. Kovich brings a genuine 21st-century legal pad to a meeting with Captain Burnham in Star Trek: Discovery season 5, episode 6, "Whistlespeak", claiming a preference for real paper before casually tearing off a sheet without the kind of reverence one might expect from a collector of antiquities. That might be Kovich's own paper.

Pelia's antique collection, transported to the USS Enterprise in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 2, episode 3, "Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow", includes items that were Pelia's personal belongings throughout history.

Many Star Trek characters have a fondness for antiques and study history, but Dr. Kovich​​​​​​​ in Star Trek: Discovery has a relationship to history that's far more uncanny than that of someone who simply has a hobby. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds ' Commander Pelia also writes off her historical knowledge and multiple areas of study like someone who's hiding something. Pelia admitted to being a Lanthanite after Uhura picked out her accent, which Kovich lacks, but it's not hard to mask an accent, especially with millennia of practice trying to pass off as human. That practice may also make Kovich particularly qualified to keep the Federation's most classified secrets.

Everything Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Revealed About Lanthanites

Pelia represents star trek's newest long-lived aliens.

As a new Star Trek species, information about Lanthanites is limited to what's introduced in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds , and specifically through Commander Pelia. Lanthanites may be recognized by their distinctive accent, but the key feature of the species is the extremely long lifespans that make Lanthanites functionally immortal. Because Lanthanites are physically indistinguishible from humans, a group of Lanthanites was able to live on Earth for millennia without being detected. Pelia claims to have lived at the same time as the Greek philosopher Pythagoras, which would place Pelia's earliest existence as far back as the 6th century BCE.

The Lanthanite presence on Earth predates all other instances of humans' first contact with aliens in Star Trek , including the crashed Vulcan survey ship in Star Trek: Enterprise season 2, episode 2, "Carbon Creek", and the time-displaced Ferengi in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine season 4, episode 7, "Little Green Men".

Lanthanites first revealed themselves to humanity in the 22nd century. Pelia, in particular, trusted her secret Lanthanite identity to Amanda Grayson (Mia Kirshner) , the mother of Spock (Ethan Peck) and Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green). Spock claims to have found Lanthanites fascinating, implying that Spock knew that Pelia was a Lanthanite, so it's entirely possible that Michael also knew Pelia's identity. Although Michael Burnham is from a time when humans were only first becoming aware of Lanthanites, Burnham might not be all that surprised to learn that Star Trek: Discovery 's Dr. Kovich is a Lanthanite, just like Pelia in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds .

Observations [ ]

According to Data , " in the game of military brinksmanship , individual physical prowess is less important than the perception of a species as a whole. " However, according to Worf , if " no one is willing to test that perception in combat [..] then the reputation means nothing. " ( TNG : " Peak Performance ")

Data also " observed that in most species, there is a primal instinct to perpetuate themselves. " ( TNG : " The Offspring ")

Classifications [ ]

Corporeal [ ].

Corporeal lifeforms have a physical body , usually composed of carbon- - or silicon-based cellular structures . Most corporeal species metabolize energy by consuming food or by photosynthesis , and have a finite life cycle consisting of distinct periods of growth, maturity, and senescence. Intelligent corporeal species frequently enhance their capabilities with technology .

By location [ ]

  • Alpha and Beta Quadrant species
  • Gamma Quadrant species
  • Delta Quadrant species
  • Extra-galactic species
  • Spaceborne species

By evolution [ ]

  • Anthropomorphic species
  • Humanoid species
  • Non-humanoid species
  • Omnicordial lifeform

By association [ ]

  • Borg species
  • Dominion species
  • Starfleet species

Noncorporeal [ ]

Non-corporeal species were composed of various forms of coherent gas or energy . Most noncorporeal species absorb and utilize energy directly from their environment. Generally, noncorporeal species do not utilize technology, compensating with intrinsic physiological capabilities. Some noncorporeal species have evolved beyond the need for sustenance, and wield substantial control over space and time .

Artificial [ ]

Artificial lifeforms were usually created by another species, and can be sentient by design or have attained sentience spontaneously. There are two general types of artificial life: The first is a machine constructed from mechanical components. The second is a software program, which is reliant on a suitable computer in which to exist. These programs may manifest themselves physically in the form of holograms , which sometimes developed self-awareness .

Trans-dimensional [ ]

Trans-dimensional beings were lifeforms originating from a reality outside the normal space-time continuum. They can take a variety of forms which may or may not be comparable to those in this universe, depending on the nature of their native realm. Some trans-dimensional species are unable to survive in this universe without assistance.
