- Race located in Delta Quadrant.
Technologically advanced humanoid Delta Quadrant civilization. The Kyrians felt oppressed by the Vaskan people, and in late 2374, radical Kyrians attacked the U.S.S. Voyager during trade negotiations with Vaskan Ambassador Daleth. That event touched off a Great War between the Vaskans and the Kyrians. Even after the war was over, Kyrian resentment against the Vaskans was strong. Kyrian educators taught that the war had been started by the Voyager crew, conspiring with Vaskan forces to commit attrocities against the Kyrian people. These beliefs persisted for some seven centuries until 3074, when newly discovered historical evidence revealed the revised Kyrian teachings to be incorrect. The new evidence opened the way to a new era of understanding between the Kyrians and their former enemies (Living Witness -VGR).
