The Hierarchy is the governing body for the Overlookers, a species native to the Delta Quadrant, and member of the Delta Alliance.

The Hierarchy is an extremely capitalistic society, measuring any undertaking strictly by its profit margin. They are also highly adept in the skills of espionage and remote surveillance. In 2376, the Hierarchy secretly observed the U.S.S. Voyager in order to assess the profitability of a raid on the ship.

Missions involved[edit | edit source]

Delta Rising[edit | edit source]

  • Faction FedRomKDF.png “Know Your Enemies”: As the Vaadwaur begin to increase their efforts to control the Delta Quadrant, player is dispatched on a routine patrol to several systems where their fleets might be lurking.
    • “Hodos System Patrol”: After realizing that their budget is too small to buy the best shuttle for Antares Trans-stellar Rally, Overlookers set up a fake qualifying race to trick others into showing off their fastest shuttles. After the player successfully finishes the qualifying race, a Hierarchy Frigate swoops in and tries to steal the player's vessel.
  • Faction FedRomKDF.png “Taking Care of Enemies”: Player is sent to protect other species from constant Vaadwaur attacks.
    • “Kinbar System Patrol”: Phlen of the Hierarchy hails the player in the Kinbar System with a request to provide security for his cargo of medical supplies. The Malon arrive, claiming that Phlen took their energy credits for the medical supplies, but failed to deliver the cargo due to a "contract violation," and the player is forced to destroy their ships when they attack.

Iconian War[edit | edit source]

  • Faction FedRomKDF.png “Butterfly”: In a holodeck simulation showing what would happen if Voyager had not woke the Vaadwaur from stasis, the player learns that the Hierarchy has stepped up their aggression and escalated tensions among the other races of the Delta Quadrant, the Iconians using them in the absence of the Vaadwaur.

Military[edit | edit source]

The Hierarchy are masters of stealth and espionage, using remote surveillance on passing ships to plan for future attacks. Their cloaking devices, while not advanced as Romulan or Klingon, allow them to slip up on a potential target and attack. However, they are not skilled warriors - they always use preset attack patterns, which can easily be exploited.

Gallery[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Hierarchy has a major role in the Star Trek: Voyager episodes "Tinker Tenor Doctor Spy" and "Renaissance Man".
  • It seems not all Overlookers work for the Hierarchy. While patrolling the Orendal System, player encounters an Overlooker Captain whose ship was boarded by the Hierarchy officers and used as a trap to lure the player in. He later apologizes, claiming Hierarchy threatened to destroy his ship if he failed to cooperate.
