History and Other Information: The USS Shogun picked up evidence of destructive attacks that were like those of the Uvalu disaster and the Benton-A disaster. As a result they diverted slightly from their present course to investigate. Soon they were contacted by two species: the Onca and the Lupari. The Onca and Lupari were at the brink of war, both accusing the other of attacking. With the help of LTjg LIR-02x, Doctor Fargus Skytower, ENS Remus Hyun and ENS Alexandra Ogleby, LT Ulrich Bechir was able to broker a deal with the opposing sides allowing them to work together to investigate the attacks. Investigations concluded that the two sides had not attacked each other but were subject to an outside force, as of yet unknown, attempting to provoke them into war. A peace was achieved between the two species with the aim of stopping these attacks and bringing the offender to justice.
The Lupari are a hierarchical, seemingly democratic and warlike race. They are ruled by a senate system but despite their obvious paranoia have a high regard in terms of honour. The Lupari prefer those they work with to a quiet reserve in their dealings and honesty. Trust is not overly difficult to gain, but easy to lose if shown not to live up to Lupari ethical and social standards. Lupari people have very little regard for anything they might perceive as cowardice, treason or malfeasance. They are to be dealt with carefully and patiently.
The Lupari have, colonized several worlds. During the attacks by an unknown force, one of these worlds was nearly destroyed. The Lupari leadership immediately assumed that the Oncan had attacked as they had been locked in a Cold War with this species for several years.
Recommendations: The Species shows itself to have capacity for learning and growth. While they are paranoid, they are able to allow their 'reason' to override their more primal instincts. Due to their honourable nature and bearing, they should be watched carefully and treated as an ally. In future years, if they are able to maintain peace with the Oncans and other species, they might be a valuable addition to the United Federation of Planets.
