The Xindi Council (sometimes simply called the Council) was founded as an alliance between the five surviving Xindi species following the Xindi Civil War in the mid-21st century. The Council's primary mission was to find a new homeworld for the Xindi, after the destruction of Xindus in the war. (ENT: "The Xindi", "Stratagem")

In the aired version of "Stratagem", Degra refers to the Council as having been formed "when" Xindus was destroyed. In that episode's final draft script, though, the Council was referred to as having been formed "after" the destruction of Xindus.
In the final draft script of ENT: "Azati Prime", the organization was referred to as "the Xindi secret Council".

The Council's founding was arranged by a race of extra-dimensional beings (later called the Guardians by the Xindi), to unite the five species and help them survive. It was not realized, at the time, that the Guardians sought to use the Xindi as pawns in the Temporal Cold War, aiming to prevent the founding of the United Federation of Planets. (ENT: "The Council")

Based on information provided by the Guardians, in the late 2140s, the Council authorized the construction of a massive weapon to be used to destroy Earth. The Council was told that the Humans would be the cause of the destruction of the second Xindi homeworld in the 26th century. (ENT: "Damage") The construction of a bio-weapon was also considered, but ultimately abandoned by the Council. (ENT: "Rajiin", "Carpenter Street")

As the Humans continued searching for the weapon, the Council was barely able to keep the Xindi-Reptilians and -Insectoids from voting to destroy Enterprise NX-01. The patience of the Reptilians was decreased, each time a failure occurred in the weapon project. (ENT: "Proving Ground")

The Xindi Council was often on the verge of breaking apart. It finally did so in February 2154, when the Arboreals, Primates, and Aquatics voted to delay the launch of the weapon, based upon evidence from Jonathan Archer. The Reptilians and Insectoids walked out of the Council, stealing the weapon on their own. (ENT: "The Council")

The Council consisted of two representatives from each Xindi race. As of early 2154, the Council representatives from each species were as follows:

The Insectoid councilor was named Shresht and the Primate's assistant Mallora in the novelization of the relevant episodes.

The Council chamber was located in a fortress on a planet colonized by the Avians in the 19th century BC. (ENT: "The Council")



According to the reference book Federation: The First 150 Years, the Council had joined the Federation by 2311.

Cryptic Studios' Star Trek Online development blog states that, though they were members of the Federation by 2410, they had remained isolated within the Delphic Expanse for centuries. They emerged from hiding in that year to help the other major governments of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants battle the Iconians.
