Relation to UFP:

- Relationship can't be good, since the government was caught sending a spy into Starfleet.

Humanoids from the Parada system; slightly reptilian in appearance.  Civil war erupted in the parada system in 2358 and continued until 2370, when the paradas sought help from Federation authorities to negotiate a peace.  Deep Space 9 operations chief Miles O'Brien was dispatched to the Parada system to be briefed on security arrangements for peace talks, but was instead taken captive.  The Paradan government, which possessed a highly advanced cloning technology, created a replica of O'Brien and sent the replicant to Deep Space 9, with the intention of using him to disrupt the peace talks.  This plan was uncovered by Paradan rebels and reported to Starfleet personnel (Whispers -DS9).
