- Noncorporeal lifeforms...  not a player race....

Noncorporeal extragalactic life-forms.  The Nacene originated outside of our galaxy and exist as pure sporocystian energy who can travel through subspace, although they can manifest themselves in solid humanoid form.  A group of Nacene explorers visited our galaxy a millenium ago, accidentally devastating the environment of the Ocampa planet in the Delta Quadrant.  Two Nacene individuals, one know as the Caretaker, and another called Suspiria, remained behind to care for the Ocampa (Cold Fire -VGR).
