Something just occurred to me:
Life for a Coridanite must suck
. First, their world is caught in a civil war between a puppet government of the Vulcans and an Andorian-supported insurgency.
Then, it becomes the victim of a planetary disaster when the Romulans fly a shuttle at warp speeds into Coridan in 2155.
Then it doesn't get to become a Federation Member State until 2266, and almost causes a Federation civil war over it.
And how it's either severely damaged or actively sterilized by the Borg in 2381.
Man, that whole being on contact with other species and being a part of the United Federation of Planets thing just did not
work out for those poor guys!
