Re: Members of the Federation.
New member of the Federation introduced in Acts of Contrition
. Humanoid, with immune systems that are particularly vulnerable to off-world infection. As a result, they rarely leave home, except on official Federation business. A minor, low-key member for about a century, home star in the Beta Quadrant.
Founding states (2161):
- 1. United Earth (Earth, Luna, Titan, plus many other colonies): Spawnworld of the Human Horde.
- 2. Confederacy of Vulcan (AKA Vulcan Confederacy of Surak) (Vulcan, T’Khut, Cor Caroli IX, Sigma Draconis V, Vulcanis Lunar Colony, Trilan, Nisus): Vulcans. Copper-blooded humanoids of the "Vulcanoid" sub-type.
- 3. Andorian Empire (Andoria [Fesoan, Twin Moons of Andor], Alrond, Cimera III, Syrinx III, Threllvia IV, Weytahn): Andorians (racial variants include Talish, Aenar). Blue-skinned people with pale hair and antennae. The Andorian Empire withdrew from the UFP in 2382, but returned in 2385.
- 4. United Planets of Tellar (Tellar Prime [Kera and Phinda], Brantik, Hakon, Maeglin; strong cultural and economic ties to non-member colony Kharzh’ulla): Tellarites. Robust porcine humanoids.
- 5. Alpha Centauri Concordium (Alpha Centauri III, IV and VII): Independent Human state.
- 6: Confederated Martian Colonies (Mars): Independent Human colony, large Tellarite colonial population, others.

Prior to the 2260s, these states have joined; the Federation as of TOS and Vanguard, basically:
- 8: United Worlds and Colonies of Rigel (Rigel II, III, V, VI, VIII, IX, X, XII - possibly IV, eventually?): Jelna, Zami, Chelon (natives), Xarantine, Ithenite, Coridanite, Human, Orion, others (colonists), collectively: Rigellian.
2260s: Something tells me Kirk and Co Have A Lot To Do With This Part
- 9: Alpha Proxima II: Human colony that became powerful or populous enough to get Council representation.
- 10: Arcturus (The one at the real Arcturus, where Arcturians are from, not the other Arcturus on the Triborder, which is a seedy, non-aligned trade world)
- 11: Plutocracy of Ardana: Ardanans. Apparently a strategic member, not really playing by the rules. After the controversy concerning its class divisions in the 2260s, it pulled out of the Federation, but eventually came back.

- 17: Cygnet (Cygnet XII, Cygnet IV, Cygnet VIII colony is joint authority with Earth): Matriarchal, emotionally demonstrative humanoids with skin that can be white, beige, purple, mauve, etc.
- 18: Deltan Union (Dhei AKA Delta IV [Cinera, Seyaan], Brannik IV): "Deltans" (Dhei-ten); Sexually mature people who have been inward-looking for the last few centuries, turning their back on their era of colonization; still feud with non-member Carrea over those old holdings.
- 19: Denobula (Denobula, Teerza Prime, Fellebia (implicitly), Matalas (implicitly)): Optimistic, patient humanoids with ridged faces. Courted as early as 2162, resisted at first due to differing positions on genetic augmentation.

- 113: Zanri: Inhabitants unknown. Membership: at least 2377.
That's 113 named members out of an established 155, not including former members Kerovi
(left, 2378) and Selelvia
(kicked out, 2376. Shoulda listened to Gimli on that one, guys).
Colonies that may well have Council representation (seeing as Vega, Deneva, Izar, Cestus III and Alpha Proxima II are full members):
- Aldebaran (Aldebaran III, IV)
- Archer (Archer IV, IX),
- Berengaria VII
- New Paris
- Tau Ceti (Tau Ceti Prime, Tau Ceti IV - Kaferia (Tau Ceti III) is likely never a member, just an ally),
- Terra Nova
- Sirius IX
Very likely members:
Assuming we accept all of those listed so far as members, it brings us to 132. Still room for another twenty or so!
Additional possible members include:
(definitely UFP, but whether homeworld or colony is unclear).
We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, and the best of us is washed away.
