Non-corporeal lifeforms.

A disasterous First Contact between Kang and Captain James T. Kirk (TOS, Day of the Dove) led to nearly 100 years of hostilities between the Klingon Empire and the United Federation of Planets. A non corporeal energy lifeform with the ability to reconfigure solid matter and make objects vanish creates havoc aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise 1701, after killing four hundred of Kang's crew. The creature skillfully evades detection and feeds on hate, however lively, happy, spirits seem to discourage it. Kang is furious and claims the U.S.S. Enterprise 1701 as his own. In 2267 negotiations between the Klingons and the Federations are on the verge of collapse.

In 2267 Hostilities break out between the Klingon Imperial Fleet and Starfleet's U.S.S. Enterprise in a disputed region of Federation space when Organia is invaded by Klingons causing war between Klingon and Federation ships. (TOS, Errand of Mercy) Starfleet Command sends a Code One Alert to the U.S.S. Enterprise. Inter-galactic War has been declared! Kirk takes action and beams down with Spock to the planet Organia where he meets a powerful non corporeal entity disguised in human form. Organia's Chairman of the Council of Elders, Ayeborne insists there is no danger and refuses Captain Kirk's generous offer of protection to outwit the Klingons which is too late now.

The Klingons are everywhere! Commander Kor strides into Council Chambers and meets Kirk, now donned out as a senior member of the community and calling himself Barona. Kor is sickened by the smiling native faces grinning back at him and can detect treachery in the air. He automatically proclaims himself Military Governor of Organia and strangely enough finds Barona's distrustful demeanour reasuring. Mr Spock doesn't go unnoticed by Kor either, with the ears being a dead giveaway and always getting the vulcan into trouble. The Enterprise has now warped out of communication leaving Science Officer Spock and Captain James T. Kirk trapped in the middle of a Klingon occupation. Kor takes charge of the seemingly stagnant civilisation still unimpressed by the harmless council elders and chooses "Barona" to act as his go-between the Klingons and the organians.

The Organians resiliant and powerful nature is revealed in (TOS, Errand of Mercy) when they stop the alien aggression by using pure thought. Trefayne exhibited psychic abilities reporting events taking place in Organia space. Aylemore was able to transverse great distances with superb stealth while evading capture, suspicion and the wrath of the Klingons. Claymare stated that people lived on Organia for "uncounted thousands of years" which suggests he has also prospered and lived for a long time. Spock is taken away to be interogated with a Klingon mind probe at a level 4 setting. Fortunately for the green blooded vulcan, Mr Spocks mental prowess defeated the machine which sends Kor into a rage who later threatens to dissect him.

Unknown to the Federation and Klingon Empire, who were on the verge of waging war with their battlefleets, the Organians were a highly advanced, peaceful, noncorporeal race who simply could not allow either party to harm themselves. Kirk and Kor protested their right to wage war but the Organians simply shake their heads and deactivate their weapons of destruction which burns hot to the touch. The organian Peace Treaty is established forcing an end to the squabbling and Galactic Peace is restored.

Live Long and Prosper Trekkies and Trekkers!
