If I remember correctly, in a TNG episode (I don't remember the name), we 
learn that Klingons evolved from a targ-like ancestor and Betazoids from a 
fish-like ancestor.  (And strictly speaking, the theory of evolution does 
not teach that man evolved from apes, but rather that men and apes evolved 
from a common ape-like ancestor.  At least, that's how it was taught in my 
school.)  (Not that I believe it, either.)
