The Vell-os are a race of telepaths. They, and any other Federation citizens showing signs of telepathic ability, are currently enslaved by the Bureau. Their telepathic ships and weapons have proven to be very effective for military use for the Federation against the Aurorans, and they have also proven to be very effective at locating individuals, such as traitors and Mu'hari spies. Furthermore, the Vell-os are responsible for ascertaining guilt in court cases (although, at present, the Bureau has usurped the process by determining the outcome in advance).
