Which species in Star Trek seems to be advancing fastest?
 
Which species in Star Trek seems to be advancing fastest? I think given the short amount of time it took Humans to advance to the point of warp capability that they are advancing faster than the others.

It depends whether you're speaking of humans as homo sapiens, which developed about 50,000 years ago, or their evolutionary ancestors dating back at least 5 million years.

Humans often meet more advanced civilizations in Star Trek.

Humans by far, all the others are established to have already been space faring when humans first set out. Except Cardassians, but vague references to their past seem to point to more than 300 years ago.

Out of the choices, Human's. The species that advanced the fastest, Kelemane's species.

Humans.

They're taking over the place, bringing root beer with them as they go...

Well, humans and Vulcans are part of the Federation. They and every other species in the UFP will advance together.

Chalk up another vote for humans.

And another for humans.

Vulcans and Romulans had space flight 5000 or 2000 years ago I don't remember and at the beginning of TOS the Romulans were still putting around on impulse power.

Vulcans don't look millenia ahead of humans either technology wise.
Klingons sufferred terribly by the Praxis explosion and the Cardassians don't seem all that clever.

I'll join most people in voting for humans.

They all seem pretty stagnant to me. Human ships are pretty much the same, except the warpometer goes up to 9.975 instead of 5, and they have holodecks which they seemingly got from the Xyrillians. The Klingons were flying the same ships in Enterprise as they were in Deep Space Nine, almost 250 years later. It seems you get into space and then... everything pretty much stays the same:shrug:

In fact, it looks like Vulcans have severely stagnated. They "redeveloped" space travel in Earth's 19th century and were tooling around the galaxy at warp well before humans were. In fact, Vulcans tried to limit human warp development and space exploration in the 22nd century. By the 23rd and 24th centuries humanity has developed to a tech level equal to Vulcans; or so it seems.

It's all about point of view, from what we saw in the shows id think they're all pretty much equal.
If you consider the First episode you see the Ferengi they seem pretty primitive, sorta make you think of cavemen, and then they have ships, tailored clothing and their you're typical business man.

But if Id put money on a Race it would be the Founders. They basically conquer other races, probably "assimilating" their Technologie, and what not. They can clone,... so, yeah.

We can clone now. Much slower, but hey we got a few hundred years to speed it up. ;)

Humanity is the Mary Sue race of the Star Trek universe.
