Kelvans were a highly intelligent non-humanoid species, native to the planet Kelva in the Andromeda Galaxy. They ruled the Kelvan Empire with an iron fist. Only a small number are known to have reached the Milky Way Galaxy. (TOS episode: "By Any Other Name"; TOS short story: "Gone Native")

The Kelvan race was a nonhumanoid species that originated in the Andromeda Galaxy. The crew of USS Enterprise encountered them at least once. During their initial contact with the Federation, the Kelvans assumed humanoid form. Their physicality, when not in humanoid form, included at least a hundred tentacle-like arms. (TOS: "By Any Other Name", Star Trek: Phoenix-X: "Forbidden Crossing, Part III")

In 2285, the Kelvans decimated the population of the Gorn homeworld while making a second attempt to invade the Milky Way Galaxy. The Federation formed ten task forces as a counteroffensive. (Orion Press: "In Harm's Way")

A century later, at least two Kelvans, Ramat and Biket, would be considered outlaws to the Kelvan High Command. Ramat, himself, had intentionally escaped his people to rebel against them. But after an encounter with the USS Phoenix-X and Admiral Theseus, in the Andromeda galaxy, he came to accept his people and decide to return. (Star Trek: Phoenix-X: "Forbidden Crossing, Part III")
