Nice species. And yes, if you want to take it further, you will have to make up Tal lore, maybe set up a website for it?
Why not tie it in with the Preservers? The theory of the 'seeders' or 'preservers' is confirmed both in TOS and TNG (the spread of humanoid live an odd 200 million years ago, or longer ago). There is little information on Memory Alpha, but a lot of information on Memory Beta, where they quote from all Star Trek sources. If you read up on the (sometimes conflicting) Preserver history, I'm sure you are going to find a great number of possibilities to tie the Tal in and give them a solid origin story.
At a few times in ancient history the Preservers had some dealings with mysterious species, maybe the Tal are one of them.
