The Farn are a warp-capable species. The Farn are reptilian lifeforms who, until the early 2560's, maintained a proud civilization. At that time they were destroyed by the Fen Domar, except for 27 ships. These escaped carrying a small number of survivors but were forced to wander throughout space, begging where they could, but more often than not being driven off. Their technology was thorium-based, but they had lost the ability to replicate the element and so they gradually were running out of power and time. The 27 ships journeyed into Earth space and were given homes. Their population up to 2573 was 80,000 in Earth space.
