FEDERATION Political entity which emerged sometime in the 32nd Century to replace the Earth Empire (which
had ended circa the 30th Century), after a period of solar flares and a new Ice Age on Earth. The Federation
was a loose combine of human and alien races, including the Alpha Centauri, the Arcturians, the newly-peaceful
Martian Ice Warriors, and presumably the Draconians.
Circa 3700 AD, the Third Doctor helped Planet Peladon join the Federation, and exposed an Arcturian plot (MMM). Fifty years later, he prevented the hostile Galaxy 5 from using the traitor Eckersley to take over Peladon's trisilicate mines (YYY).
The Federation later evolved into a more militaristic entity, perhaps due to the challenge of the Daleks in 4000 AD, and the ensuing, Fourth Dalek War (V), as well as the discovery of life-extending Spectrox (6R). The Federation eventually disintegrated into new empires, and could be considered as extinct by the beginning of the 50th Century.

FENDAHL The Fendahl was an entity who fed on the full spectrum of life itself. It originated on the Fifth Planet of the Solar System, which was time looped by the Time Lords in an attempt to contain it. But it escaped and travelled to Mars, then, 12 million years ago, to Earth, where it arrived in the form of a skull. It was buried in a volcanic eruption, but secretly affected human evolution. The Fendahl Skull contained a pentagram-shaped neural relay where the Fendahl Energy was stored, waiting to be reactivated. In the late 20th Century, the Skull was found by Dr. Fendelman, who brought it to the Fetch Priory, where it was studied by Thea Ransome, Colby and Stael. Stael turned out to be the leader of a coven which recreated the Fendahl. The Fendahl turned Ransome into a Fendahl Core, and its other victims into Fendahleen. It needed twelve Fendahleen to be complete, but failed to obtain them. The Fourth Doctor eventually used Fendelman's Time Scanner to set up a time implosion which destroyed the Fendahl Core and the Fendahleen. He later jettisoned the Fendahl Skull near a supernova, where it was presumably destroyed (4X).
FENDAHL CORE The Fendahl turned Thea Ransome into a Fendahl Core. In that guise, she became a golden, Medusa-like woman with writhing hair and huge, deadly eyes. She perished when the Fourth Doctor set up a time implosion which utterly destroyed the Fetch Priory (4X).
FENDAHLEEN The Fendahleen were large, snake-like entities with no eyes and with a mass of writhing tentacles where their mouths should have been. They had the power to freeze their victims psychically. The Fendahl needed twelve Fendaleen to be complete, and turned the members of Stael's coven into Fendahleen. But the Fourth Doctor killed one with rock salt, and Stael's suicide saved him from becoming one, thus keeping the Fendahl gestalt incomplete. The Fendahleen perished when the Fourth Doctor set up a time implosion which utterly destroyed the Fetch Priory (4X).
FENDELMAN (DR.) One of the richest and most powerful man in the world, thanks to his firm, Fendelman Electronics. His twin hobbies, archeology and electronics, led him to develop a Time Scanner with which he studied the origins of man. He found and brought the Fendahl Skull to the Fetch Priory, where it was studied by Thea Ransome, Colby and Stael. He eventually realized that he had only been a pawn of the Fendahl, and was murdered by Stael (4X).

FENRIC Name given by the ancient Vikings to an evil entity from the dawn of time. In the Far East of the 3rd Century, the Doctor (in an unrecorded adventure) successfully challenged Fenric to solve a chess problem. As a result, Fenric was imprisoned in a shadow dimension, while his earthly essence was trapped inside a flask. That flask was brought to Northumberland by the Vikings, who first wrote of the Curse of Fenric. From his prison, Fenric succeeded in manipulating the descendents of the Vikings, whom he dubbed his "Wolves" into engineering his return. (Ace was one of the Wolves of Fenric.) Fenric's eventual release took place in Northumberland in the 1940s, just before the end of World War Two. He planned to release a deadly toxin which would have destroyed mankind, but was again defeated by the Seventh Doctor. Fenric's host body (Captain Sorin's) was killed by the Ancient Haemovore (7M).
