Tree

The actual name of this species is unpronouncable (Treezxxithinlothorianstrappa) and thus the nickname Tree was given to them by the first contact team. Trees are an intelligent, bipedal, arboreal species that are direct descendants of the Old Earth Trees. The trees were sold to the Brotherhood from the Panjassic Asteroid field, who experimented on the trees, and, after hundreds of years the trees grew arms and started walking. They simply got in their space ships and traveled outward in every direction never to return home. Several ships entered UFP space late in the 23rd century and they joined the UFP soon after. Trees exhibit a respect for all forms of life. They neither respect nor understand technology, referring to computers as ‘metal minds’ or ‘metal machines’, being intelligent and not needy of electricity. Their ships are powered by bioenergy and are living creatures themselves. Navigation is performed by those who understand the ways of the force.
