    Tactical Analysis: The Voth

    The Voth are a saurian species based in the Delta Quadrant. Although there is little chance of them reaching our space, it is in our best interest to understand all of our potential foes.

    Note: Much of our information on the Voth comes from intercepted Federation files, or downloads from the computer cores of captured Starfleet vessels. Should our warriors come into direct contact with the Voth, we will update our analysis.

    Physiologically, the Voth most closely resemble the Gorn, Saurians and other reptilian species. They have three clawed digits on each hand, a bony eye ridge that extends to a cone-shaped protrusion on the back of their skull, and heightened senses. Two things of interest in Voth physiology is their ability to fire spines from the lower arms that are coated with a paralytic poison and their ability to enter a rapid hibernation state to avoid danger. Our warriors should use caution when engaging them in close combat.

    The species is ruled by a Ministry of Elders, which is similar to our High Council but seems to hold complete control over the populace. This group maintains Doctrine, which is a set of guiding principles that shape Voth society. Adherence to Doctrine is draconian, and violators, or “heretics,” will be imprisoned or suppressed.

    According to Federation records, the Voth believe that they were the first lifeforms in the Delta Quadrant and that they originated on their current homeworld. Voth Doctrine also states that non-indigenous beings have no rights, which means that we cannot expect them to treat us as equals in any interactions. Our warriors will not be able to tolerate such attitudes. Conflict is inevitable.

    The effect of Doctrine on Voth society can be seen in the Voyager incident during the 2370s. When the Starfleet vessel Voyager was stranded in the Delta Quadrant, their genetic markers were used as evidence for a Voth scientist’s “Distant Origin Theory.” This theory states that the Voth actually originated on Earth but developed spaceflight and left the planet to avoid a cataclysmic event.

    And if this theory is true, does that mean that the Voth will be as weak and bothersome as humans?

    When confronted with findings that were counter to Doctrine, the Voth reacted swiftly to silence all dissent. The scientist in question was forced to repudiate his own work, and the Voyager crew narrowly avoided imprisonment. When pressed, Voth will defend themselves and their way of life in a most admirable fashion.

    However, this religious devotion to Doctrine could be a weak point for the Voth. Voyager logs indicate that the Voth will reject technology that is counter to Doctrine. We can use this to our advantage. The Voth are very slow to change and adapt, and their adherence to Doctrine exacerbates this issue. We must be more agile and more willing to try new tactics to defeat them.

    Technologically, the Voth are extremely advanced. They possessed the ability to use transwarp millennia ago (but delayed using the technology due to Doctrine concerns), their sensors are well beyond even Starfleet’s best and they possess transporter, cloaking and phasing technology that far outstrips our own. In addition, they have the ability to build massive city ships. These “Fortresses” can house entire fleets, in addition to thousands of Voth. It would take a small fleet to assault one of these, and we need to consider such engagements carefully before we undertake them.

    As far as warrior spirit, we far exceed the Voth in this area. They seem reluctant to engage unless it is a question of Doctrine or survival, and find combat distasteful, preferring to attempt to overwhelm their foes quickly with superior technology. Sources among the Hirogen have told us of Voth battle suits and saurian creatures trained for combat that the Voth use in war, but we have no direct evidence of these phenomena.

    Overall, I would say that the Voth are not a species we want to engage without the chance of significant gain. The diplomatic options are limited, possibilities of an alliance are low and the battles will be hard fought.

    Given a sufficient reason to fight them, however, I am confident we will triumph. Our warriors are the finest in the galaxy. If we face the Voth, we will defeat them.
