The Cultural Archival Society was originally founded as a joint venture between the Eighth Fleet Department of Research & Development and the Daystrom Institute as a means to study previously unknown or little-known races, both living and extinct. It is a blended group of Starfleet and civilian specialists tasked with the compilation of data from this research for the Federation Archives. Like academic societies throughout history, the Cultural Archival Society relies upon an atmosphere in which ideas may be openly exchanged without fear of condemnation or reprisal.
The Cultural Archival Society has the primary responsibility for the creation and maintenance of In-Character articles and information regarding species, governments, planets, locations, ships, and persons of note so as to enhance our understanding of the universe in which we engage in our simming endeavors. The Cultural Archival Society consists of the following members:
