The Cheydalanga were a minor member of the Dominion just before the end of the war, on the far side of the former Dominion sphere of influence[1] In 2401, they contacted were contacted by the United Dominion of Planets, and in response, the Cheydaldangan government reached out to the United Federation of Planets. The USS Octavia E. Butler responded to the call.

The current government structure is unclear however it is suggested that Cheyd operate on a system where ones birth dictates a cheyd's role. However it was suggested by Intercessor Ulto'Delarento that one can work their way up to a Government position [2] This however is rare.

Culture & Language

Chey'd culture is based on a caste system known as the Chey’d’bacla[3] in which one is born into their role.

The Chey'd communicate using third person pronouns, refereeing to themselves as "this one" and refereeing to someone else as "that one." The first person pronouns such as "you" and "I" are only used to refer to slaves, criminals and undesirables in Chey'd culture.[4]

This one - Referring to self

That one - Referring to one person

These ones - Referring to a group of people, typically used if you had a group on your side. More friendly (These ones are family)

Those ones - Referring to a group of people, used maybe more formally, or more professionals. (When talking about The Kings Paths - Those ones don't speak for Chey'd kind)


Not much is know about their customs at this time.
