No, you're not missing any. The five founding worlds are Earth, Alpha Centauri (which is populated by humans), Vulcan, Andoria and Tellar.

We don't yet know which were/will be the first non-founding members, or how long it took for any to join. Basically, our knowledge of the period between the UFP's formation in 2161 and the mid-23rd century is very slim. At present we know the five founding worlds and then, a century later, we have over 30 members.

There's never been anything definite, but there are clues. And it's not 30 exactly, just around that (and of course each member state might have more than one world).

As a very loose timeline of membership:

2161

The founders are Alpha Centauri, Andoria, Earth, Tellar and Vulcan.

Between 2161 and, say, 2250

By the 2250s-60s, the Caitians, Deltans, Denobulans, Rigelians, Saurians and Tiburonians appear to be well-established members.

2260s

We know the Argelians are members; looks like the Cygnians are too. Probably the Antarans (Beta Antares IV). Coridan and Ardana join at this time. The Axanar seem to be in, possibly recently.

2270s

By the 2270s-80s, the Arkenites, Efrosians, Kasheeta, Kazarites, Rhaandarites and Zaranites are established members (those are all races introduced in the films, and since expanded on in the novels). The Trill too - they seem to have associated with the UFP for quite a while, but maybe they only join now.

2290s

The Huanni join in 2293.

Early 24th century

By around the 2330s the Atreans, Betazoids, Bolians, Gnalish and Pandrilites are established members. The Alonis join in 2336. The Grazerites probably join around now, if Jaresh-Inyo's backstory is considered.

Mid-24th century

The Damiani are undergoing the admissions process. The Zakdorn are members by this point at the latest.

2350-2360s

By around the 2360s at the latest, Arbazan, Elaysians, Hermats, Nasats and Seleneans are members. Pahkwa-thanh join in 2360. Benzites seem to be in the last stages of the admissions process at this time.

Antedeans in the 2360s.

2370 +

Bajorans in 2376.

Koas in 2380.

Re: enterprise : the romulan war

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't there some fan issues about seeing Romulans in Enterprise TV or lit? I don't recall TOS TV episodes with total recall, but weren't the Rimulans "mysterious" and unseen even in a lot of the TOS TV episodes? I think they debuted in TOS time, no? If so, how can Enterprise be building to a Romulan War unless there is a reset button at the end of all this?

Re: enterprise : the romulan war

"Balance of Terror", the first Romulan episode on TOS, canonically established the Earth-Romulan War and the fact that the two sides had never seen each other's face, they just fired at the ships.

ENT, both the show and the novel relaunch just ran with this concept.

As an idea it's not so out there, the Pacific Theatre of WWII saw several naval battles where the two sides fleets never saw each other, the battle was conducted entirely by aircraft over-the-horizon from the surface fleet. It's a simple jump to extend this concept with space battles.

Ah. Thx. Makes sense. Also, I imagine b/c the readers know who Romulans are, the readers get the benefit of reading about pre-TOS Romulus and Romulans while the ENT crew, etc. are in the dark. So its kind of a win-win for readers, I guess. Readers can learn/see what ENT won't. Interesting.

BTW, what season was Balance of Terror in?

They already did this during the Romulan arc in ENT's last season. The ENT Relaunch continues on from there.

Re: enterprise : the romulan war

In Destiny: Mere Mortals we had a short peak into Earth in 2168.



The current ENT relaunch is going through the Earth-Romulan War at a pace of one year per book. The next book In Shariel's Shadow would cover 2157 and is due out in November. That leaves three to five more books at the current rate to finish the war in 2160 and get around to the Big Event in 2161.

One would hope the events of 2161 would be their own book but who knows.

Also note that In Shariel's Shadow has been renamed to To Brave the Storm.
