Player Race: No
Relation to UFP:

- Part of Dominion...  with things so touchy after the war, it would be best to leave this race as a non-player race.

Humanoid civilization from the Gamma Quadrant, part of the Dominion.  Quark established a trade agreement with the Karemma for pruchase of tulaberry wine (Rules of Acquisition -DS9).   The Karemma used Ferengi as intermediaries in their commerce with the Federation, because they knew the Dominion would never tolerate direct trade between the Karemma and the Federation.  The Karemma were naive when it came to business dealings, and the Ferengi took advantage of them for a time (Starship Down -DS9).  The only contact the Karemma had with the rest of the Dominion was through the Vorta (The Search, part 1 -DS9).
