The Minbari were a spacefaring humanoid species that resided in the near side of the Milky Way Galaxy. They went extinct some ten-thousand years before the 23rd century AD, and were the subject of several archaeological studies conducted by the Federation. During the 2350s, young Timothy Sinclair discovered evidence of the Minbari on a world in the Great Rift. (Star Trek: Pendragon: "Past Watchful Dragons", "Of Shadows and Starlight", "Another Time, Another Place")
- The Minbari, of course, are a reference to the Babylon 5 television series.
