Player Race: No
Relation to UFP:

- Race is located in the Delta Quadrant, so it is difficult to have a player race come from there.

Technologically sophisticated civilization in the Delta Quadrant.  The Akritiri had an oppressive government and a system of justice described by Starfleet observers as cruel and draconian.  In 2373, Starfleet officers Harry Kim and Tom Paris were accused by Akritiri authorities of carrying out a terrorist bombing and imprisoned on the Akritirian prison satellite.  Akritiri ambassador refused to release Kim and Paris even after Captain Janeway had captured the actual persons behind the bombing.

Star Trek: The Encyclopedia (1999 edition).

Advanced humanoid Delta Quadrant race with basic interstellar spaceflight, perhaps warp-capable. A dictatorship controls the planet, now dealing with an Open Sky group fighting to overthrow it. Pardons or rehearings in convictions and sentencing are never heard; felons are kept in an isolated spacegoing station -- as the U.S.S. Voyager's Paris and Kim discovers when wrongly sent there.
