A brief history of an Y'kel, in her own words
I am Indari, last of the Yan. This is my story.
Two years ago, my people - the Y'kel Sovereignty - were negotiating with a group of Romulan rebels seeking to overthrow the Imperial government; I was sent as the envoy. While we have a long, animous history with the Empire, their strategic situation was too tenuous for us to risk supporting them. It was there that a Yiridian courier was sent to me with a peculiar message; he said my homeworld - Khi'ya - had been "taken by demons." He could not elaborate further. I dismissed it, and returned home - only to find the entire Yn'del star system had vanished, and our colonies were left abandoned, as though the people had simply been swept away. All I found besides was our ruined flagship and a small cruiser with a skeleton crew I had served with years before. This ship I took as my own.
One fateful day, my ship - the YSV Soulstar - found its way to the Virinat colony, where I intended to barter for components to repair her. Before we could dep

Star Trek: Original Species Profile: Y'kel
Note; Despite being set in the Star Trek Online timeline, the background here is based upon the more traditional interpretation of the layout of quadrants in the Milky Way; the Federation is firmly situated in the center of the Alpha Quadrant, while the Romulan and Klingon Empires both have distant holdings just within the Beta Quadrant.
The Y'kel (ee-kel) originate from Khi'ya (ki-ah), second planet in the Yn'del (een-del) system, deep within the Beta Quadrant. Because of their location, The Y'kel Sovereignty has had little contact with the major powers of the Alpha Quadrant, although they have had several encounters with the Romulan Star Empire over the last 250 years, including a brief cold war of sorts some 175 years ago. The Y'kel are a major force within the greater Beta Quadrant. They were an expansionist imperial power for a time, and went through many wars with their various neighbors. 87 years ago war broke out between the Y'kel Sovereignty

Tango is a style of desktop icon, first invented for Linux, but it has come to be adapted for various operating systems. They are rendered in vector format, and, as such, scale especially well. While there are thousands of Tango icons out there, there are still a few I'm looking for that I'd like to see.

I prefer to see separate icons for 16 and 32 pixel formats, as the scaling of the borders tends not to render the lines as well, and getting well defined borders is quite desirable for those two formats so they look good in lists and on the Windows Superbar.

This list will be added to on an ongoing basis, and items will be checked off if and when an icon is created.
