before the 2360's: The Yridian race goes extinct. This disappearance was so total that it even convinced
the Borg (who designate Yridians as species 6291) that Yridians were extinct. However, Rudolph Ransom,
a Starfleet exobiologist, discovered that there were some still alive and carried out the First contact. For
this he was awarded the post of Captain of the USS Equinox.

Yedrin Koss - SEE: Yerdrin Lek.
Lek (Brett Rickaby) - An information dealer in the 22nd
century. In the alternate timeline
where the Xindi destroyed Earth, Yedrin Koss was hired by the Xindi to help find the last colony
of humans. They paid him to follow Doctor Phlox when he left Denobula Triaxa, which he did in
2165 to treat Jonathan Archer. Koss tailed Phlox to the Ceti Alpha system, and informed the Xindi
of its location. Though he was captured by Enterprise (where he tried to pose as a dealer in Rigelian
flamegems), it was too late. Following his signal, the Xindi attacked Ceti Alpha. Koss presumably
died in Enterprise's brig when the ship was destroyed in a subspace implosion.
(The character's name was never mentioned in the episode as aired. The final draft script for
"Twilight" dated 11/06/2003 gave this character the name of Yerdrin Lek. Earlier drafts called
him "Yedrin Koss". The name was changed because there were other Star Trek characters with
Yog (Joel Swetow) - 2370: The Duras sisters planned to
rendevue with him in the Ufandi system to
sell him the magnesite ore that they stole from a Pakled mining operation on Kalla three. Riker
tricked Yog into giving him the 500 kilograms of magnesite ore in his hold by trading one-half gram
of Anjoran biometic gel for it, saying that Yog would get payment once its purity had been verified.
Riker then beamed the ore into space and destroyed it. The dispersing ore exposed the cloaked ship
belonging to Lursa and B'Etor. "Firstborn" [TNG]
Yranac - (pronounced yuh-RAN-ick)
Worf met him in a bar and made up a story about looking for a
man that impregnated Riker's sister. He wouldn't admit to having seen the Captain (who was the
person they were really looking for). But he did say that anyone who visited the ruins of Nafir
would probably come to the bar eventually... When Riker questioned him, Yranac claimed he had a
sister too and if this happened to her he would pay anything to find the one responsible - Yranac
wanted 5 bars of gold pressed latinum for his information. When the Bartender threatened him, he
changed his terms to safe passage aboard Riker's ship. Yranac had seen the captain several weeks
ago. As far as he knew the captain was attacked and vaporized by a hand energy weapon. Later,
aboard ship, Riker threatened him with prison time for his twelve outstanding arrest warrants for
fraud and petty theft in the Klingon empire if he didn't give him information he could use to track
down who "killed" Picard. He told him that the aliens had been operating in the sector for 6 months
and had mentioned heading to the Barradas system.
