The Iconian Empire was a massive interstellar empire that once existed in the Milky Way Galaxy. It is known that this entity had fallen about 200,000 years ago.

History

Rise and Fall of the Empire

The ascendancy of the Iconian race began thousands of years ago when their race made use of the Dream Gem, to develop their gateway technology. Using this incredibly advanced technology, they formed the Iconian Empire which by 200,000 years ago is known to have reached all four quadrants of the galaxy. (TNG novel: The Devil's Heart)

It is believed that the Iconian Empire used its technology to benevolent ways. However, suspicion and fear motivated several species from all over the galaxy to unite against the Iconian Empire. These species formed an alliance, which journeyed to the Empire's capital planet and homeworld of Iconia, where they bombarded its surface, where it was believed that the "Demons of Air and Darkness", as other species called them, were finally destroyed. In over 200,000 years no other state had achieved the same level of greatness as the Iconian Empire. (TNG novel: The Devil's Heart, VOY short story: "In the Queue")

A captain from the year 2410, joined by the Klingon Captain Kagran and disgraced Romulan Empress Sela, arrived during this time and learned the truth of the Iconian Empire's fall - they were a benevolent race that was highly technological, though a bit arrogant. Many races coveted their technology, seeking to use it for conquest or being about to eradicate disease without knowing of the consequences of using such high technology. These races united and attacked Iconia's colony worlds before attacking Iconia itself. The trio aided three Iconians - M'Tara, L'Miren and T'Ket - in evacuating the Iconians to Dewa III. However, Sela, wanting to complete the trio's original plan to kill the Iconians and stop the war that was ravaging their world at the time, struck killing a number of Iconians and crippling L'Miren, leading to T'Ket to vow to eradicate the Romulans for her treachery.

Return

Although the Iconians were believed to be extinct, some used the Dream Gem to activate their gateway network in order to survive. In the early 25th century, the Iconians had several servitor races wich served them in order to complete their common goals. In the early 2410, a Dyson Sphere suddenly jumped from the Andromeda Galaxy to some location near the Iconia system, bringing the Herald fleets, signaling the beginning of their invasion. These events led to what became known as the Iconian War. (STO - "The Iconian War" mission: "Uneasy Allies", TNG novel: The Devil's Heart)
