Relation to UFP:

- They're hyperaccelerated and probably still try and capture males to mate with.

Humanoid people from planet Scalos.  The Scalosians were subjected to biochemical hyperacceleration by volcanic radiation many generations ago.  The radiation also decreased fertility in the females and completely sterilized the men.  To preserve their species, the Scalosians were forced to mate outside their planet, dispatching distress calls to passwing space vehicles and subjecting the crews of any responding vessels to hyperacceleration.  This pattern continued until 2268, when the Enterprise responded to a distress call from Scalos but was able to repel the invaders.  Federation authorities were later advised to warn other ships to avoid Scalos (Wink of an Eye -TOS).
