A good idea for a book would be to write a dscription of diffrent races from the point of view from starfleet inteligance or the diplomatic core.
This is a great idea! I'd include a color atlas, too. It would be a great way to see what the lesser known races of Star Trek look like.

Dont know if it could be done as a GOOD fan project.......

I'd like to see a map of the post-Dominion War Alpha Quadrant. To my knowledge, it's not been done.

Wasn't there also supposed to be a return of the Vaadwaur in a future VOY episode?

As for DS9's Hunters, I believe the plan was that they and the Tosk are members of the Dominion. Notice how much the Tosk look like 'prototype' Jem'Hadar? They even have exactly the same 'shrouding' ability. Reportedly both the Tosk and the Jem'Hadar were created from the same 'original' race (the Hunters are the navigators/trackers of the Dominion, and the Tosk were basically given to them by the Founders as gifts).

A Hunter was even supposed to take the helm of the Defiant (while piloting it to the Founders' homeworld) in "Broken Link" but for some reason this was changed to a Jem'Hadar at the last minute.
I liked the Vaadwaur in their one episode. A tragic people that have both redeeming and villainous elements. Also if they appeared further more as villains... which you'd think Janeway would be all over figuring out how to use those subspace corridors.. they'd be relying on cunning to be threatening rather than brute force.

I've heard about the Tosk being a prototype or lesser version of the Jem'Hadar and the similarities definitely are there. I never heard about a Tosk taking the helm in Broken Link. That would've been a neat touch. Surprisingly diplomatic too.

I believe that a Hunter would have taken the helm of the Defiant. Tosk had no military authority or responsibility.

Not canon but Star Trek Online retconned the Schisms aliens into being One and the same as the Silent Enemy aliens. In the game they get the Name Elachi who are allied in secret with the Tal Shiar and serve the Iconians to prepare the Galaxy for their return.

Not if it sounds just worse than it is, but in the game it works surprisingly well.

Sounds interesting. I've never played Star Trek Online, but maybe I should.

Most definetly Sheliak. I wonder of they were an inspiration for the Shedai from the Vanguad books.

Re: Alien races you would like to have seen expanded upon?

Personally, I wish they had made fewer races (maybe with several subcultures to compensate). It would've made it easier to expand upon each. But with 150 members in just the Federation, you're not likely to ever see all of them, much less learn about them.

Would definitely like to see more of Andorians/Tellarites in the 23/24th century. Loved the trip to Andoria in Ent season 4 and would like to see something akin to that.

I liked the ancient nomadic hunter based Hirogen. Their species was so unique.
