A Vaadwaur Assault Vessel, which represents the bulk of the Vaadwaur fleets.
The Vaadwaur Supremacy was a vast empire, ruled by the Vaadwaur, that once spanned the Delta Quadrant until it was destroyed. In 2410, a relatively short-lived resurgence of Vaadwaur trying to re-establish the Supremacy took place.
History[edit | edit source]
The Supremacy ruled much the Delta Quadrant at its height, using a network of subspace corridors - the Underspace - to launch sneak attacks on neighboring systems. Eventually, however, an alliance of species led by the Turei managed to defeat the Vaadwaur in the 15th century and force the survivors to place themselves into stasis in the hopes of one day rebuilding their culture.
In 2376, the U.S.S. Voyager landed on the now-lifeless Vaadwaur homeworld to hide from a Turei patrol. While there, the crew discovered a battalion of Vaadwaur in stasis and Seven of Nine awakened them. While the crew of Voyager initially helped the Vaadwaur start to rebuild, they eventually discovered the nature of the culture they'd revived and were forced to flee before the Vaadwaur could capture their vessel. Several dozen of their ships escaped the planet, disappearing to parts unknown.
By 2410 the Supremacy has been reborn, and has used surprisingly powerful ships and weapons to wreak havoc across the Delta Quadrant and overthrow several major factions, such as the Krenim Imperium and the B'omar Sovereignty.

Military[edit | edit source]
Despite their original technology being nine hundred years out of date, the Vaadwaur have made an impressive comeback over the years and now sport some of the most powerful warships in the Delta Quadrant.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Vaadwaur were introduced in the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Dragon's Teeth".
- In the mission “Butterfly”, the player participates in several holodeck simulations to determine changes to the timeline that could result from the use of the K.I.S. Annorax. One simulation shows the effects of preventing Voyager from discovering the Vaadwaur and awakening them from stasis - the Iconians simply chose another race to act in their stead.
