When the [[Eminian]] finally conquered space and developed space craft spacecrafts capable of both transporting large numbers of people and traveling throughout their system they established a colony on Eminiar III. They continued to ship out thousands of people each year. All most Almost all of these colonists were members of the Vend Min Kan, a group with different cultural and religious beliefs than most of the rest of the population. Eventually all of the Vend Min Kans were transported to their new colony as well as a number of other smaller cultural sub-groups. Each sub-group settled in a different location on the planet and they developed into small nation states with their own governments and policies.
Eminiar III continued to receive support, equipment and supplies throughout the entire process that lasted approximately 87 years. After this the colony had to start shipping back goods and natural resources to pay for the expense of starting up and establishing the colony.
Eventually sometime around the early 18th century they started to call themselves Vendikans and renamed their world Vendikar. This seems to have been the start of their desire to distance themselves from their home world which had been draining them dry of natural resources and other goods.
Shortly after this they declared independence, stopped supplying goods and natural resources and seized all of the ships currently docked on their world. This had been a well-timed and planned assault that allowed them to capture over ½ more than half of all the ships owned by the EminiarsEminians.
Shortly after this the nation-states of this world united under a central planet wide government. The government was administered by the Vendikar High Council and a brand new city called Vikar was built on an island to serve as their capital city.
By the late 18th century war had broken out between them and the EminiarsEminians, a war that lasted more than 500 years. The conditions of this war were stipulated in a treaty signed by both worlds in 2031. As a result they shifted from fighting a real war to fighting a simulated war with causalities determined by computer projections, and the people willingly killing themselves in disintegration stations. Legitimate targets in the war included vessels orbiting the planet. The reneging of this treaty by either side could result in a real war.
In 2267, the [[ma:USS Enterprise|USS Enterprise]] visited the planet Eminiar VII. During the visit, when his ship and crew were threatened with destruction, Captain [[ma:Kirk, James T.|James T. Kirk]] ended the war abruptly by destroying the computers. Ambassador Robert Fox began work with the two planets to establish a lasting peace.
These efforts broke down in 2282 and it looked like both worlds were gearing up for war. As a result a new Ambassador was dispatched to attempt to mediate their problems in the hopes that war could be adverted. His vessel was attacked and damaged and would have been destroyed if not for the intervention of the [[Arkarian]].
One of their heavy cruisers happened to be close by and was able to intervene. As a result it was discovered that the [[Orion|Orions]] had established trade deals with both the Vendikar and the Eminiar Eminian to supply them both with weapons and advanced technology.
Ambassador [[ma:Suvok|Suvok]] was able to use this information to open up a new series of peace talks. It took almost 3 years but a clear and positive result was achieved, one that not only meant peace for the two civilizations but a start to healing the rift between them.
By 2304 they entered into a joint commercial and defense pact that had them establish long term trade and joint military operations with in within their system. Surprisingly this joint endeavor has lasted and gradually morphed into its current form with a permanent joint military and an economic system so interwoven as to be practically a single entity.
    The Vendikan appear to be normal humanoids with a remarkable similarity to humans, both in variety of shapes, heights, weights and hair color but all of them are Caucasian in appearance. Members of the government and anyone holding an important civilian position of authority will wear the traditional green, tan and gold colors. This automatically lets others know that they are important. All others will wear any color except these as they are only allowed to people of authority.
The civilization is advanced, having had space flight for more than 800 hundred years, but it had elected not to venture outside of its solar system while locked in armed conflict with the Eminiar. Since the end of that war they have flourished and grown, supporting numerous research programs and making steady progress at developing new advanced technologies.
As of 2371 the governments of both the Vendikans and the Eminiar entered into a new age of co-operation. A complete merging of both of their space fleets. Now individuals from both worlds serve on the same ships together.
Due to the religious beliefs of the Eminian who worship the creator god who dwells in space all officers and personnel serving in the space fleet wear black with tan accoutrements and silver insignia. Due to the religious beliefs of the Vendikan who worship the creator goddess who dwells with in their planet all officers and personnel in the army wear green with tan accoutrements and gold insignia.
