The West Lodge was a Foamasi criminal organisation. They were known for infiltrating organisations in order to get their way. They used the voice of Shistavanen game-show hosts for their communicators.
In 2290, agents of the West Lodge attempted to purchase Argolis from the Argolins, even though the Foamasi government was attempting the same thing. Eventually, the agents were captured and accidentally killed when Pangol attacked. (TV: The Leisure Hive)
