They make fantastic administrators and excel at the duties involved in there complicated positions.

Soon after first contact with the Federation starship USS Gandhi, the Zakdorn became members of the United Federation of Planets in 2344. Known for their pretentious and fussy demeanors, they are nevertheless valued allies, contributing their famed tactical expertise to the defence of the Federation. Historically, other races have been so fearful of the Zakdorn reputation for tactical supremacy that no-one has dared attack them; many Klingons therefore sneer at the reputation, dismissing it as "untested".  For nine millennia, they were regarded by potential foes as having the greatest innately strategic minds in the galaxy. Because of this perception, no one has tested the Zakdorn in combat in recent memory. As a people In 2365, the Zakdorn were generally replete with selfmaster strategist [[ma:Sirna Kolrami|Sirna Kolrami]] visited the USS Enterprise-assuredness D to serve as observer and overconfidencemediator during a war games exercise in the Braslota system.  They were members one of the United Federation many species that attended the biennial Trade Agreements Conference held on Betazed in 2366. They operated the Starfleet Surplus Depot Z15 in orbit of Planets Qualor II. [[ma:Benjamin Sisko|Benjamin Sisko]] and [[ma:Calvin Hudson|Calvin Hudson]] were persuaded by the 2360s[[ma:Curzon Dax|Curzon Dax]] to play a game of dom-jot against two Zakdorn on Pelios Station. The Zakdorn were triumphant and Curzon revealed he had placed a bet on their victory.
Zakdorn are humanoids with pouches of thick, fibrous tissue on their cheeks. They have three pouches per cheek. They have pale blue/grey skin with many folds, and the majority of Zakdorns tend to be plump and short, but are obese and weaknot exclusively so.. This has not affected their reputation.
Their minds are very complex with a natural affinity for organization, analytical thinking and probability calculations. Mental disease is only a problem for the very old. As a people, the Zakdorn were generally replete with self-assuredness and overconfidence.
