The Mengenites were a civilization native to the Mengen star system in the Alpha or Beta Quadrant, in the vicinity of Sol in Federation space in the 23rd century.

The Mengenites were a sovereign group that were not a member of the Federation by the year 2270. Commander Paul Burch of Starfleet feared that the power schemes of Vice Admiral Vaughan Rittenhouse were a threat to sovereign civilizations like the Mengenites.

Representatives of the Mengenite species were space travelers, known to frequent spaceports throughout local space, including Federation open ports on planets such as Argelius II. A pair of Mengenites were among an audience to a belly-dance preformed by Lieutenant Commander Piper of Proxima Beta, who was attempting to investigate illegal research performed by visitors to Argelius.
