Evaluation of the United Federation of Planets
Recently one of our starships encountered a vessel from a previously unknown alien race. These aliens represent a larger interstellar alliance known as the United Federation of Planets. From what we have gathered this Federation is a group of around 80 races (as of this entry) spread over several thousand light years of space.

There are a wide variety of races that are members of the Federation.
