There are a number of known species in the Expeditionary Force Series. Most species are either clients or patrons to one another, for example the Maxolhx were originally a client species of the Rindhalu.

We are first introduced the Ruhar a client species of the Jeraptha; they are clients to the Rindhalu.[1]

Baturnah Logellia introduced the idea of the Maxolhx not being the nicest of patrons to the Thuranin. [1]

There have been many other introductions to other species during the course of the Expeditionary Force Series, including the ancient species discovered on Newark.[2]

The Elders were an ancient race that disappeared from the Milky Way millions of years ago. Skippy the Magnificent believes they ascended to a higher level of existence.

Humans on Earth, Avalon & Jiayuguan and the Merry Band of Pirates currently have no patrons or clients, but are looking to achieve alliances with many species. The humans on Paradise, though not technically clients of the Ruhar, are under Ruhar control. The Pirates have a clandestine association with the Jeraptha Ethics and Compliance Office.
