From UFStarfleet LCARS
Submitted by: LT Teresa Firelight, Acting Chief of Ops, USS Shogun
Name: The Vipera
Home Position: Unknown. They were encountered on a starship 189.83 LY Trailing from Pinastri System
Class: Bipedal Reptilian
Conditional Notes: - scientific and technological levels comparable to UFS, except they also possess time manipulation technology
Society Classification: Aggressive species, hostile to the Federation, dedicated to eliminating all mammalian species to establish the dominance of the reptilian species.
Government System: theocracy – ruled by their “deity,” the Snake.
Date of First Contact: 110611
Other Notes: This species was “created” from lower level reptilian life forms by the Snake, who used chroniton technology to hyper accelerate their evolution. There is a deep religious connection between the Vipera and their “creator;” they reverence him as a god and would unquestioningly do anything he asks. Their sense of right and wrong is defined by their creator, and he is a known enemy of the Federation.
History and Other Information: The species was encountered on the Snake's ship on 110611. The Vipera crew complement on that ship was relatively small. But a reference to their home world was found in the ship's database, indicating there are tens of thousands of them. There was no information about their planet's location.
Recommendations: Attempt to locate their home world and keep them under covert observation, as they are a dangers species known to be hostile to the Federation.
