The Scythians were a humanoid reptilian civilization native to a homeworld located somewhere in the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrants. They live on self-sustaining space stations in orbit of Scythos IV.
In 2371, Federation ambassador Karrig opened first contact with the Scythians, who planted drones near the Gamma Quadrant terminus of the Bajoran wormhole and near Deep Space 9. The drones in the Gamma Quadrant attacked the Danube-class runabout USS Orinoco, which was carrying Bannik, a Tirrion ambassador assigned to assist Karrig. (DS9 video game: Harbinger)
