=::''"An interesting move, foolish but interesting. Checkmate."'':::a Zakdorn'''=saying.:The Zakdorn are a species of strategists, the ultimate gamer who can often plan 20 to 30 moves ahead. This makes them extremely difficult to beat and many species have avoided any aggressive actions against them for this reason. However the Klingons believe it is a false reputation as they are ill suited to fight in any kind of a physical confrontation. They make fantastic administrators and excel at the duties involved in there complicated positions.

The Zakdorn government feels strongly about being granted voting powers equel to the Federation's four founding members, insulted at the notion by the {{USS|Vigilant}}'s captain that all member races of the Federation were equal. When Zakdorn was under internal pressure to secede from the Federation, the Vigilant captain orchestrates a game of strategema against a Zakdorn official to emulate the strengths of his Federation crew - a [[Rodulan]] cheated, feeding a [[Terran]] their opponent's thoughts, equalling one Zakdorn - however, the Zakdorn opponent was later exposed to be a [[Klingon]] spy.<ref>[ ''"Allies and Enemies" (Part 2)''], FltCpt D.Herrera & Statigo B.Bokzadeshti, {{USS|Vigilant}}, SD 239103.10</ref> The Zakdorn were convinced to remain in the United Federation of Planets, the Zakdorn forgoing their alliance with the [[Klingon Empire]].
In 2391, insulted that Starfleet did not commission a vessel of more 'substance' than a mere [[Intrepid class]] ship, Stratigo Bokzadema Bokzadeshti demanded an inspection of the {{USS|Vigilant}}, claiming that Starfleet received a vessel at a lesser standard than usual from the Zakdorn ship yards than they would have had they taken the vessel when it was actually completed.<ref>[ ''"What you do not know"''], Stratigo B.Bokzadeshti, {{USS|Vigilant}}, SD 239101.22</ref> Revealing that the Zakdorn had placed surveillance aboard the vessel during it's construction. Upon meeting the Stratigo again, Bokzadeshti provided the Vigilant crew with "evidence" regarding the Federation's favoritism of it's core members - however, the meeting was attacked by a [[Suliban]] group, who had intended to implicate the Zakdorn in an attack on Suliban citizens<ref>[ ''"Pop goes the door seals"''], LtCmdr S.Blake, {{USS|Vigilant}}, SD 239102.13</ref>, and a member of the crew was able to retrieve data from a chip found on the Suliban, revealing communication between the Sulliban and the Vulcan homeworld, adding significant weight to the Stratigo’s conspiracy theory.<ref>[ ''"A Friend Indeed"''], FltCpt D.Herrera & LtCmdr Eerie, {{USS|Vigilant}}, SD 239103.10</ref>
