The Miltoans were a peaceful Alpha Quadrant species native to the planet Miltoa. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "Directive")

Miltoan society[edit | edit source]

The Miltoans evolved along similar lines to some Native American tribes on the planet Earth. A peaceful people, they remained a neutral power within the Alpha Quadrant and often offered their services as mediators between various conflicting parties.

Like some Native American beliefs involving a higher being known as the Coyote, the Miltoans believed in a similar being called the Di'char'a, a rough equivalent to a dingo.

The Miltoans did not believe in forcing their beliefs on others, and their planet was open to anyone with peaceful intentions. While no formal agreement existed, Starfleet guarded Miltoa Prime against threats as the Miltoans themselves had no military.

Their society was built upon a great amount of trust and honesty.

The Miltoans believed their role in the universe was to promote harmony in the face of adversity and diversity.

History[edit | edit source]

First Contact[edit | edit source]

The Miltoans and the United Federation of Planets made first contact sometime prior to the 2260s.

It is not clear where or when this first contact took place, but it needed to be prior to 2268. We assume the Miltoans had advanced spacefaring technology to have 8 million people living on one of their moons by 2268.

Disaster on E'ria[edit | edit source]

By 2268, the Miltoans involved themselves in the Federation-Klingon dispute at the Federation's request. In this same year, the Klingons attacked E'ria, a habitable moon of Miltoa Prime, killing 8 million civilians. The USS Cantabrian, under the command of Captain Thekla Lawless, was one of the first ships to arrive to render assistance.

The Khitomer Accords[edit | edit source]

Despite their losses on E'ria, the Miltoans pressed on with peace talks between the two powers. In 2293, the Khitomer Accords were signed, with Miltoan representation on hand at the Khitomer Conference as a neutral power to ensure the Accords were fair.

The Federation-Cardassian War[edit | edit source]

The Miltoans helped to end hostilities between the Federation and the Cardassian Union in the Federation-Cardassian War.

More about their history[edit | edit source]

In the 2360s, the Miltoans invited Federation, Klingon, Cardassian and other scientists to Miltoa Prime to assist with rediscovering their past. Anne Lansing was an archaeologist representing the Federation on Miltoa Prime during part of this time. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "Directive")

The Myhr'an[edit | edit source]

The Federation considered involving the Miltoans in peace talks with the Myhr'an after their attacks on Federation and other races' space in 2372; however, the Myhr'an ignored all peaceful approaches. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions)
