“That sound… it is so pleassant. Caan you not hearr it?”

The feline Caitian species hails from the Regulan system in the Beta Quadrant, and have been prominent members of the Federation since their admittance in 2234. With a representative serving on the Federation council, colony worlds throughout Federation space and Caitians serving extensively in Starfleet, they are ubiquitous throughout Federation territories, if not quite so much so as Humans, Andorians, or Vulcans.

The origins of the Caitian race are largely a mystery, though many scientists consider that they may share a common ancestor with the Lyrans or Kzinti. Either way, their claimed homeworld of Cait (Regulus V) is one that they have occupied since members of their species began recording history.

Unlike many other Federation members, Caitians did not discover warp drive on their own. Rather, they were invaded by a warp-capable race called the Kodom during the Caitians’ late industrial development. Fighting a guerrilla war against their attackers, the Caitians drove the Kodom off, and and managed to reverse engineer the warp drives of ships left by the invading race.

Caitians are a warm and friendly people who eschew violence whenever possible. Despite their calm and open nature, which is sometimes interpreted as flirtation by non-Caitians, they tend to avoid public displays of affection with their partners, as such displays for the benefit of others are not considered productive in the maintenance of a relationship. Caitians tend to be logical and scientifically minded, and thus, very few are religious.

Caitians tend to be quicker and stronger than humans of a comparable size, with excellent balance, eyesight, and particularly hearing. Their diet is primarily carnivorous, though they do partake of grains more out of necessity than preference. And due to the shape of their muzzles, when speaking English, they often tend to trill ‘R’s, or stretch out ‘S’ or vowels.

Many Caitians in Starfleet choose to specialize in sonic sciences or communications, due to the natural advantages their hearing provides them. There are a number of Caitian characters serving throughout the Starbase 118 fleet in a variety of capacities.
