    Here is how I rank the major powers. This does not count non corporeal beings. I have added done delta quadrant species in. This is how they stand around 2371.

    1st tier( Galaxy spanning projection overwhelming military might)
    Borg
    Dominion (maybe between a 1 and 2 as the dominion can't go transwarp)


    2nd tier ( large military might with diplomatic and economic influence over a large section of there quadrant)
    Federation
    Romulans
    Klingon
    Krenim imperium
    Devore

    3nd tier (regional power with significant influence in there surrounding area)
    Tamarians ( maybe 2nd tier)
    Cardassian
    Ferangi ( I get the impression they are a economic power, however they have no centralised military instead relying on defence contractors and warships in private ownship with first line of defence being to useful to everyone)
    Breen
    Tholian
    Tzenkathi (they appear to have given the feds some trouble in a war)
    Bo'mar


    4th tier ( regional power with limited influence)
    Gorn
    Talarian
    Talaxians
    Kazon
    Vidian
    Pakleds
    Lysian
    Satarran
    Mokra

    5th tier ( single system civilisation with limited significance)
    Bajorans
    Acamarians
    Antedian
    Angosians

    Anyone care to add more?

    We know very little of Gorn might as we have only seen them in one episode of the original series! The Klingons and the Romulans are the two races we do know a lot about but most of the rest not mentioning the Cardassians are either one hit wonders or we only get to see one or two of their species!

    Cardassian are hardly one hit wonders seeing as DS9 pretty much had them as one of the core vilians.

    And it's called speculation.....some of us like to speculate and world build.

    The Hirogen
    Species 8472

    The Gorn seemed fairly well matched with the Federation in terms of propulsion, at least.

    Hirogeon where far to decentralised to be a great power.

    I did not count 8472 as they where not of this galaxy.
