The Imhotep were a spacefaring humanoid species from the Delta Quadrant.

For years, the Imhotep were at war with the Antarians and the Terrellians. Only in the late 2370s was a peace treaty finally signed, ending the conflict. In its place, a race would be held every year, the Antarian Trans-stellar Rally. The first race was run in 2377, and the Imhotep won. (VOY: "Drive")

The Imhotep were identified by the process of elimination as Neelix and Seven's gave race updates. Their makeup reuses elements from the Benzites.
The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 360) thought this species was named for Imhotep. He was an Egyptian architect, engineer, and physician who lived in the 27th century BCE.
