Re: What are the requirements for the joining the Federation?
Seriously, though, were there any grossly non-humanoid aliens that were UFP members?
, the Ariolo
, the Bzzit Khaht
, the Kasheeta
, and the Zaranites
are Federation Members, and they're awfully alien. Then there are the Antedeans
, the Anticans
, and the Selay
were all in the process of gaining Federation Membership.
In the novels, the Federation also includes species like the multi-tentacled Sulamid
, the jellyfish-like Selenans
, the repilian Saurians
, the teddy bear-ike S'ti'ach
, the tripedal Triexians
, the aquatic amphibious Selkies
, the Velociraptor
, the pillbug-like Nasat
, the hideous Medusans
, the diminutive Evora
, the merpeople-like Aonis
, and, of course, the famous rock-eating Horta
