The following is a list of all the lifeforms seen or mentioned in the Star Trek canon - canon being the films and live action series only. The list is current up to around the middle of Series 7 of DS9; additions and/or corrections are welcome. As with the planets list, for a speedy update you should include the name of the life form, the episode it comes from, and if possible a rough idea of where it is mentioned in the episode.

As with the planets list, this list is based on the Star Trek : Encyclopedia but contains some small changes. I have removed those names which are proper names of individuals - for example the empathic 'Gem' from the original series episode "The Empath" has been deleted, as has Data's cat 'Spot'. Also gone are alternate names for species mentioned elsewhere on the list - the Encyclopedia list has an entry for "Ugly Bags Of Mostly Water", the Microbrain name for Humans, but this is redundant since Humans are mentioned under their own name. Finally, Borg species numbers have been moved from their own entries into the description of the individual species where we have names for those (Talaxians, Vulcans, Kazon).

After these changes the list has four hundred and fifty seven species listed on it.
