The Star Trek Cultural Database was a Star Trek information fansite documenting the alien races of the Trek universe.

This is a listing of races mentioned in: TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, TAS, the Films, and fan fiction. It is by no means a complete listing as races are continually being added.[1]

The site contained alphabetical listings with tabulated details on each race, including description, size, skin pigment, hair, distinguishing features, series (episode appeared), planet of origin, quadrant, background, editor's notes and often a picture. The tables were colour coded, with Federation members in blue, quarantined planets and hostile races in red, and members of the Dominion not known to be hostile in orange. Some races, including the Borg, Cardassians, Founders, Klingons, Terrans and Vulcans additionally had detailed sub-articles, illustrated with many framegrabs. It included races introduced in RPGs in a separate list.

Some information was sourced from other fansites, including the Bajoran Central Archives, LCARS, Lost Races of TOS and Starbase Sigma, as well as the Star Trek Encyclopedia and Star Trek: Omnipedia.

It was hosted at FortuneCity and went offline in May 2012 when FortuneCity stopped providing free hosting.
