List of Federation Members

Hola all!

So, because I'm a dork and have a love of lists that almost matches that of our esteemed KRAD, I decided to go ahead and make a list of Federation Member States. I've been working on it for a while. Right now, the number clocks in at 153 -- just slightly below the 155 number established in Articles of the Federation.

The list is based on a few key assumptions. To begin with, it assumes that if we see a member of the Federation Starfleet or an employee of the Federation government, then this person's species is probably a Federation Member unless otherwise stated. It's also based on the assumption that *most* of the Federation Member worlds listed in Star Trek: Star Charts are accurate. Because of some wildly contradictory information out there about the aliens seen on the Federation Council in ST4 that background material is in general not be accepted, and those species presumed to be from some of the numerous Federation Members that Star Charts establishes but does not assign a species to. I used as many worlds from the Memory Alpha and Beta resources as I could, and got much of my information from them.

Special note on Rigel: This list presumes that the various worlds in the Rigel system, described as being unified as the United Rigel Colonies in Star Charts, are all part of a single Federation Member State, the United Rigel Colonies, commonly referred

Re: List of Federation Members

there's a goof where you put TNN not TTN on Kazar, you spelt Rogue as Rouge, you missed the second a from Anarchy in 'Mere Anarchy' and i think you should say IaMD also implies Denobula as a UFP member, since Phlox said about Earth, Vulcan and Denobula being united in a Federation in the 'other' (normal) universe or something similar.

I haven't seen too much contradiction. I generally go with FASA's "ST IV Sourcebook Update" unless the novels have clarified something.

I think that's a reckless assumption to make. We know of several Starfleet personnel who aren't from member worlds: Worf, Nog, all Starfleet Bajorans pre-2376, Tasha Yar (Turkana IV was a UFP protectorate, but not a member), and arguably Data (since there was no civilization of androids with a seat on the Federation Council). And Icheb was accepted into Starfleet Academy despite being from a world on the other side of the galaxy. So representation in Starfleet can't be taken as evidence of UFP membership, not by itself.


Algolia - TNG: "Q-Pid"
I don't think that's the right name. I'd assume that Algolians are meant to be from Algol.

Alpha - inference from TOS: "Court Martial"
First off, presumably Cogley's reference to "Alpha III" is shorthand for some fuller name, possibly Alpha Centauri III. Second, Cogley wasn't citing Federation members, he was citing historical documents defining human rights. He also cited Hammurabi, but I don't think ancient Babylon was a Federation member.

Alpha Proxima - The Brave and the Bold, Book II
Probably an alternate name for Proxima Centauri, which is part of the Alpha Centauri trinary and thus presumably part of the same member state.

Arbaza - DS9: "The Forsaken"
Arbazan - STSC
Why are you treating these as different?

Arcturus - The Entrophy Effect
Actually The Entropy Effect (no H) established Arcturus as a neutral world between Federation, Klingon, and Romulan territories. Which really doesn't make astronomical sense, seeing as how it's only 37 light-years from Earth. It was TMP that claimed the Arcturians as Federation members, though the portrayal of that species in behind-the-scenes material was rather implausible.

Aulac - Ex Machina
The name of the Aulacri's homeworld has not been established.

Camus - STSC
That's an odd one for SC to include, seeing as how Camus II was portrayed onscreen as a dead world whose only occupants were archaeologists.

Catulla - aka Cendo-Prae - TOS: "The Way to Eden;" Worlds of the Federation
We know that Catulla was not a UFP member as of "The Way to Eden." The Encyclopedia conjectured that they were applying for membership, but that's purely speculative.

Cerberus - STSC
In TAS, Cerberus was a colony. Presumably colonies don't count as distinct members. It's possible Cerberus could've grown to become a member world in the century since, but we have no evidence of that.

Krios - Shares name with a Klingon subject world - AotF
I've seen it suggested that the Krios from "The Perfect Mate" was the Klingon subject world from "The Mind's Eye."

Ktar - War/Peace
If you mean the Ktarians' homeworld, that's called Ktaris.

Megara - STSC
IIRC, the Megarites weren't Federation members as of Ex Machina. They could be a century later, though.

Ophiucus - STSC
Ophiuchus (there's where that extra H goes) is a whole constellation. "Mudd's Women" referred to a planet called Ophiuchus VII, but Harry Mudd may have been shortening a longer name. (And he mispronounced "Ophiuchus." It's "oafy ookus," not "Oh, fie, a cuss.")

But Earth is, and Cogley was citing historical precedents for Federation law. As such, it seemed a logical inference that he wouldn't cite historic law of a non-Federation world.

Arbaza - DS9: "The Forsaken"
Arbazan - STSC
Why are you treating these as different?
Probably because STSC called it "Arbazan," and, because of the sheer number of names I was dealing with, I didn't actually recognize that it's nearly identical to the planet from "The Forsaken" and thus more than likely the same world until you just pointed it out to me! Thanks.

I've seen it suggested that the Krios from "The Perfect Mate" was the Klingon subject world from "The Mind's Eye."
I'm told that A Singular Destiny features both Krioses and has one being a Federation Member and the other a Klingon subject world.

If you mean the Ktarians' homeworld, that's called Ktaris.
It was called Ktar in A Time for War, A Time for Peace. Possibly this is an Andor/Andoria thing?

No, he wasn't.

"Rights, sir – HUMAN rights! The Bible. The Code of Hammurabi. And of Justinian. The Magna Carta. The Constitution of the United States. The Fundamental Declarations of the Martian Colonies. The Statutes of Alpha III. Gentlemen, these documents all speak of RIGHTS! Rights of the accused to a trial by his peers, to be represented by counsel, the rights of cross-examination, but most importantly, the right to be confronted by the witnesses against him – a right to which my client has been denied!"
He was speaking of the universal principle of individual rights. He never said a word about the Federation.

Besides, ancient Israel, Babylon, Rome, England, and the United States are not whole planets, but nations. Who's to say "Alpha III" wasn't the name of a colony of another civilization rather than a separate world? It's too vague a reference to draw any firm conclusions from it. (Although I still think it's probably a reference to Alpha Centauri III, given the historical progression.)

Actually we don't know of a world called Arbaza. We know there's an Arbazan species, but Vulcans aren't from Vulca and humans aren't from Huma.

It should be noted that the greatest source of information regarding the Alpha Proxima system comes from KRAD's story in The Brave and the Bold, and it seems there that it was not the intention of the author for there to be any connection to the Alpha Centauri system.

Re: List of Federation Members

Bynaus is not a Federation member and this was explicitly stated in SCE: Belly of the Beast. The exposition when introducing the Bynars stated that while they were not Federation members they had agreed to abide by the rules and regulations therein for the duration of their stay on the da Vinci and there was also no mention of them being Federation members in "11001001" otherwise there would have been no need for them to steal a Federation starship, they would have probably had a Galaxy-class of their own.

That doesn't follow. The city of Cincinnati is a member of the United States, but that doesn't mean City Council has its own aircraft carrier at its disposal. You're making the common mistake of confusing the Federation, a multi-state government, with Starfleet, the military organization that serves that government. Federation member worlds no doubt have thousands of starships, but they're civilian vessels. Galaxy-class starships are Starfleet vessels, not available for public use, and there were only 4-6 of them in service at the time of "11001001" anyway.

It would be more accurate to say that if Bynaus had been a UFP member, they could've requested that the Council assign a Galaxy-class starship to their needs.

In fact no such thing was ever explicitly stated in The Belly of the Beast or elsewhere, and another S.C.E. story, 10 is Better than 01, explicitly stated that Bynaus was a member.

I think I see the source of the confusion. You're probably remembering this bit from Fatal Error: "The Bynar pairing weren't even Starfleet, they were civilians, part of an exchange program—although they had agreed to abide by all Starfleet rules and regulations." That just meant that 110 and 111 weren't Starfleet personnel, not that Bynaus wasn't a member of the Federation (though my use of "exchange program" might've been misleading). After 110 changed his name to Soloman and decided to stay on the da Vinci, he formally enlisted.
