History

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, the Zakdorn were generally replete with self-assuredness and overconfidence. They were members of the United Federation of Planets by the 2360s.

Government

The leadership of the people is determined by a very long series of competitions. These start on the day that the new Stratigo is selected and continue for 5 years till the new winner is then determined and becomes the new Stratigo. The next 10 best competitors then become his cabinet and become the leaders of each ministry as selected by the Stratigo.

Description

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 are obese and weak. This has not affected their reputation.

Physiology

The vast majority of them appear to be obese and weak. However they have a fairly complex physiology that is resistant to most diseases and less susceptible to radiation or exposure. They tend to be unusually healthy although they do tend to suffer from a number of weight and eating issues.

Psychology

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.

Religion

The study of old battles and simulations is the closest thing they have to a religion.

Mythology

They repeat, study and treat old battle simulations and records of actual battles like most other species treat legends and myths. Although in their case they approach it more like a religion as every single citizen has studied the top 10,000 so many times that they have they memorized completely, and in most cases all the variables and possibilities that would have or could have affected the outcome.


Society

They have a very structured society with almost no crime. They also do not have any poverty or hunger. All the people live to a comfortable level that tends to be better than that available to the vast majority of other species of the working class.

Culture

While they do enjoy music, art and other forms of entertainment they reserve most of their down time for strategic contests and games.

Customs

They have a complex series of customs that seem to revolve around their love of strategic competition.

Technology

They are slightly ahead of most Federation member species.

Economy

While many Zakdorn find employment as strategists or planners, the resounding majority serve in bureaucratic or minor political positions. They are almost self sufficient and export very little. They do however import more than they export. These are mostly edibles, wines, ales and other exotic foods.

Military

Zakdorn strategists are of great value to Starfleet's Tactical Command. Other than that they have no military any more. They do maintain 6 very large satellites with extensive defensive capabilities and a large number of long range warning systems around their home world.
