Cause someone dared me to ... I did a Centaur race for Modiphius Games Star Trek Adventures rpg.

I present you the Cabalosians, based loosely on the Centaurs from A Centaur's Life.

CABALOSIAN


ALL ERAS OF PLAY
Cabalosians are an intelligent quadruped race native to the mountains and hills of Caballus. A class M world bordering Andorian space, near Coridan. At one time their world was occupied by the Orions and many of their people in the Northern lowlands were enslaved along with various other races captured in Orion raids. The Cabalosians of the Southern mountains, of had a warrior culture akin to the ancient samurai of Earth, waged a long war with the Orions raiding deep into the North and freeing many slaves, who in turn joined their army.
Eventually, with weapons supplied by the Andorians, the Cabalosians liberated their world. The two races maintain good relations and on the Andorian’s recommendation, Caballus joined the Federation in 2163. Cabalosians value service, duty and honour and many serve in Starfleet where they gained reputation as fierce shock troops in the Klingon War.
