"We were foolish and punished for our hubris. Now leave us to mourn our loss."
a Xindi-Avian saying.
The Xindi-Avian are a species evolved from birds that prefer to left alone, isolationists who have a greater belief in spirituality that they ever did in science.

The early history of the Xindi is a remarkable one. It is very rare for 2 intelligent species to evolve on the same planet. For 6 species to have done so is unheard of. As a result many historians, scientists and experts agree that the loss of their home world was a enormous blow to science and the understanding of just how this unique situation came to be.

Regardless we do know that the Aquatics were the first to evolve into an intelligent life form and that the were followed by the Primates. It is widely believed that the Avians were the last species to evolve into an intelligent life form. Very little is known about their ancient history but it is known that the Primates became the dominante life form and ruled over all the others for eons. Numerous minor conflicts were fought over the years but finally the last war escalated and they destroyed their own planet in the mid 2030's.

It was believed that the Avians were all destroyed at this time. This was due to a number of reasons. The most obvious of which was that they were so far behind the other Xindi species when it came to technology and they did not have the ships or capability to build any.

Gralik Durr's grandfather, who had resided on Xindus, remembered a time before the planet's destruction when Avians would flock overhead, filling the sky.

Strangely, the remains of an Avian settlement were found on an alien planet that dated back to the 2nd millennium BC. The ruins of the settlement were used for the meeting place of the Xindi Council after their home world was destroyed. It was here that they planned and ordered the development, construction and deployment of the prototype weapon that they then dispatched to attack Earth. This attack was successful and millions of humans were killed.

The Xindi (pronounced ZIN-dee) were an alliance of species who evolved on the same planet in the Delphic Expanse, known as Xindus, whose infamous attack on Earth and attempts to terminate Humans in the early 2150s changed the course of history and initiated the series of events that helped establish United Earth as a major interstellar power.

In the mirror universe, Xindi ships fought in a conflict with the Terran Empire sometime prior to 2155. In the 26th century of an alternate timeline, Xindi served on the USS Enterprise-J during the Battle of Procyon V against the Sphere Builders.

Commander Dolim, a Xindi-Reptilian once commented that the Council chamber had "the stench of the Avians' failure to survive".
