"The Observer" was a higher lifeform engaged in studying the "limited beings" that populated the United Federation of Planets. As part of these studies, the observer viewed a December 2380 edition of Illuminating the City of Light.

As a higher life form, the observer created his own taxonomy for beings and planets in the Federation. Some examples of that taxonomy are as follows:


  • gender-two - shen
  • gender-five - female
  • gender-seven - male
