The Deferi


A race who believe in balance with the forces of nature and advancement.

  • Martial Pacifist: They only fight for survival. Their only enemies are the Breen (who kidnap them as slaves and steal their crap) and the Borg (who are everyone's enemy).
  • Morality Pet: To J'mpok's Klingon Empire, who view them as very honorable for saving a Klingon Fleet decades ago. The Klingons don't even want to conquer them.

     Ambassador Surah 
The lead ambassador for the Deferi to offworld cultures.
  • Ambadassador: Subverted, he doesn't want to fight anyone. At the Borg conference he states that the Deferi will remain neutral if a consensus can't be reached.
  • Big Good: For the Breen Arc.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He's involved in a minor and optional diplomatic mission on Starbase 39. He's very important later in the game.
  • Not-So-Omniscient Council of Bickering: Surah has a massive case of packing up his bags and going home whenever things aren't "in balance". He does this in a side mission at Starbase 39 and does it again during "Second Wave".

The Breen


A race of humanoids who wear environmental suits and wield cryogenic weapons.

     Thot Trel 
The leader of the Breen forces in the Deferi sector.

  • Big Bad: Of the Deferi arc.
  • Dramatic Irony: Believes the Preserver Archive will contain innumerable weapons to help the Breen dominate the galaxy. It's a stasis chamber containing Preservers.
  • Evil Overlord: Acts like this as he commits numerous war crimes, gloats, takes slaves, and generally acts like a monster.
  • Kick the Dog: He does this numerous times to the Deferi. So much so his own men are disgusted with them.
  • Large Ham: In the tradition of Hakeev and several other characters.
  • Last Words: Signify what kind of ego the man has.
    "But I'm Thot Trel..."
  • Villainous Breakdown: Has one after the discovery of the Preserver Archives' true contents. People. His career is effectively over as he's conducted a war for something his superiors will deem worthless.
  • 0% Approval Rating: The Breen under his command are deeply uncomfortable with his war crimes.



An ancient race that predate other sentient life in the galaxy.

  • Benevolent Precursors: All life in the galaxy is descended from their efforts.
  • Big Good: They have the potential to be this for the entire galaxy. They die before it can happen.
  • Disappointed in You: Their reaction to the Iconians' decision to kill them all.
  • Earth-Shattering Kaboom: The Iconians deliver one of these to their world.
  • Human Popsicle: The Preservers are all on ice at the start of the adventure. They die before many are awoken.
  • The Omniscient: Every Preserver has the entire collected sum of their race's knowledge in their head.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: They're a race that has the potential to change the whole of galactic history. Too bad they don't get the chance.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: They waited millions of years to meet their children and ended up being killed by their Firstborn.
