Location: I am here. You are here too. Yes.
I know we've had threads like this before. Here I'm trying to list the Novel 'Verse's established Federation members - meaning peoples with Council membership, so disregarding any number of colonies.
  • Aaamazzara: Bee people; no-one’s touched them yet, for some reason. Membership: at least the 2270s.
  • Alonis: Telekinetic aquatic people. Membership: 2336.
  • Alpha Centauri Concordium (Alpha Centauri III, IV and VII): Founder.

That brings us to 105 or 106 (out of around 155 places to fill). Plus, the many other established or implied colony worlds may in some cases have Council membership, since Deneva, Izar and Cestus (even Alpha Proxima II) made it to the Council.

So much for alphabetical order. Here are some more:

I wonder if they get pissed off that not everyone considers them to be a founding member of the Federation.

Nicely researched list Deranged Nasat, like the short identifiers you included.

Re: Members of the Federation.

I reckon the Theskians might be there, too. "Related to Andorians", and a Theskian was in the Enterprise-D's crew ("Metamorphosis").

I haven't played with my list since Geocities ended, but it was preserved at:

Re: Members of the Federation.

Awesome list Nasat! I'm not 100%, but I'm pretty sure Magna Roma is a member. There was a Magna Roman first officer on the USS Lionheart in James Swallow's Poisoned Chalice and I have a vague recollection of Mr. Swallow saying that they were in. Also, I think a book from the 80's, one that has Picard and a Magna Roman captain on the cover, also says that Magna Roma is a member...but of course, it's not canon, so who knows. Thanks for putting together a great list

Re: Members of the Federation.

Yeah, The Captains' Honor by David and Daniel Dvorkin. Its interpretation of the so-called "Magna Roma" was rather off-base. "Bread and Circuses" showed a planet with alien continents (the same shape as half the other planets in TOS) but a similar ratio of land to ocean, atmospheric composition, gravity, climate, etc. to Earth -- like Earth, but clearly not Earth. Yet TCH interpreted it as an absolutely exact duplicate of Earth right down to every individual and historical event, diverging only with Sejanus's attempted assassination of Tiberius. (Which was an in-joke, because Patrick Stewart played Sejanus in I, Claudius. So having the modern captain be a namesake and near-lookalike for Sejanus was meant to suggest Patrick Stewart vs. himself.)

The idea of the Roman planet being a Federation member just a century after B&C is difficult to believe. They would've had to banish slavery, abandon war, achieve warp drive, etc. in just a hundred years -- that doesn't seem probable.

Re: Members of the Federation.

In Forgotten History, there's a Betelgeusian (a male, I believe*) serving on the Federation Council. However, it didn't say whether he represents the Betelgeusians (or some division of them) or whether he's simply a citizen of one of the established Federation worlds. Given the decentralized and nomadic nature of the Betelgeusians, I was reluctant to come to any conclusions.

* Males are more likely to be away from the Prides than females, since all of them spend their adolescence as wanderers anyway; some presumably don't go back?

........

I almost promoted Algol to the "established" list, given that every appearance by an Algolian, both on screen and in the novels, has involved their participation in Federation matters, but I'm waiting for something more on that one.

Has it been definitively stated that Magna Roma is the same as the "Bread and Circuses" planet? I don't recall you calling it such in Ex Machina and The Poisoned Chalice appeared to kind of avoid that, too.

Re: Members of the Federation.

I never mentioned "Magna Roma" by that name in Ex Machina, because that name comes only from Worlds of the Federation and The Captains' Honor, neither of which I consider a credible source. In fact, I deliberately contradicted The Captains' Honor's implausible backstory for that planet in ExM, describing planet 892-IV as "that planet populated by the descendants of Earth Romans seeded by the Preservers."

But yes, Worlds does apply the name "Magna Roma" to 892-IV, and also states that it's on the path to Federation membership. Evidently The Captains' Honor was following its lead. And TCH does say that one of the first ships to visit "Magna Roma" was named Enterprise.

Well, I liked seeing Atia in The Poisoned Chalice, myself...so we've got an interesting question to play with here.

Re: Members of the Federation.

Keep in mind that one does not need to be from a Federation member world in order to be in Starfleet, viz. Ro Laren, Sito Jaxa, Nog, Worf (sort of -- he probably became a Federation citizen when the Rozhenkos adopted him), the Cardassian cadet on Titan, etc.

Re: Members of the Federation.

The Poisoned Chalice explicitly establishes Magna Roma to be a Federation Member. From pages 98-99:

James Swallow, THE POISONED CHALICE wrote:
The other woman was the same age as Vale, from a planet commonly known as Magna Roma. Atia's people were the descendants of humans transplanted from Earth's distant past to that world by an alien race known as the Preservers. They had carried their culture--based on the Terran Roman Empire--with them and evolved a civilization based upon its tenets. The Magna Romanii had long since grown out of the more objectionable elements of their society and become active members of the Federation; but they were said to be a fierce, strident people, and Vale's first impression of her new executive officer did nothing to dispel that view.

Good catch, Sci. I'll edit them onto the list.

EDIT: Too late, edit feature's gone. Never mind.

PS: I very much liked Atia, too. I hope we see her again. Since she assured Vale that should Titan ever be in need of them, Lionheart would answer, I'd like to see her become a recurring character, at least while Titan is still based in Federation space.
