Meeting of the Xindi Council.

The Xindi Council, also known as the Xindi Ruling Council, was the overall government of the five remaining Xindi species, inaugurated in the mid-21st century after the Xindi Civil War. Its primary goal was to find a new homeworld for the Xindi after Xindus' destruction. They governed over the various settlements that the surviving Xindi has established on various planets across the Delphic Expanse.(ENT episodes: "The Xindi", "The Shipment", "Stratagem"; ST reference: The Star Trek Encyclopedia)

History[edit | edit source]

The Council was formed by a race of interdimensional beings, that were known as the Guardians, who assisted the Xindi in the genesis of the council. In reality, the so called "guardians" used the Xindi as pawns in the Temporal Cold War that sought to prevent the Federation's founding. (ENT episode: "The Council")

In the 2140s, the guardians gave the Council information that Humans would destroy their new home in four-hundred years. Thus they agreed to have their scientist and council member Degra build a weapon to destroy Earth. They also discussed developing a bio-weapon, but rejected it. (ENT episodes: "Damage", "Rajiin", "Carpenter Street")

As the Humans of the Starfleet ship, Enterprise (NX-01) searched for the weapon, the Reptilians and Xindi-Insectoids from voting to destroy Enterprise. The patience of the Reptilians was decreased, each time a failure occurred as the weapon was being finished. (ENT episode: "Proving Ground")

The Council had joined the Federation by 2311, but remained largely isolationist until the Undine stepped up their war against the Alpha and Beta Quadrant superpowers in late 2409 and early 2410. (ST reference: Federation: The First 150 Years; STO website: Dev Blogs)
