Anyways, the hunters you're referring to are the Hirogen. Random one dimensional race of the week. I love how all star trek races are all warriors, or all scientists or all capitalists, etc.
Seeing as the Federation seems to be populated by scientists, soldiers, or bureaucrats, it's not surprising they weren't anymore inventive with the aliens. The Borg in their original form could be seen as a parody, intentional or not, of the Federation itself.
