They started out in the oceans and evolved into an amphibious species. It was only after they started to live on land that they started to develop true technology. They advanced at a fairly even pace. This was further enhanced by the peaceful conditions that prevaled. War was unknown and any disagreements were settled in peaceful co-operation.

Eventually they developed space travel and advanced into space. Soon after this they learned the hard way that not all other species were interested in peaceful trade and harmonious co-existance. They had lost over a dozen ships before one was able to escape and return to explain what was happening. As a result all their ships were recalled and work started on the development of weapons. Fortunately they had fairly good scans of the vessel that had attacted them to work with.

It was almost 10 years before one of their refitted ships left their system to explore. It soon encountered another ship that opened fire on them. It was the same species that had been attacking their ships previously. The Velorian destroyer escaped and returned to report. Over the next 3 years a state of war existed between them and the Romulans. It eventually wound down and a formal peace was agreed upon.

Over the next 100 years they were able to avoide getting involved in any more wars. It was at about this time that they met the Ameoneian for the first time. Strangely enough they quickly developed a friendly
