The Za'tachk are a technologically sophisticated sophont species.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Physiology & Environment: The Za'tachk are descended from trisexual omnivore/gatherers. They are quadripedal; like the Hivers, they use their limbs equally well for movement or grasping. They are similar in size and weight to the Hivers.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Hivers discovered the Za'tachk and eventually made them part of the Hive Federation.

Society & Culture[edit]

Even before being discovered by the Hivers, the Za'tachk were similar in many aspects of culture, being non-aggressive, pacifistic, and highly cooperative in all phases of society. Unlike the Hivers, they are also somewhat timid and lack the burning curiosity that typifies Hiver behavior.

Social Organization[edit]

The race has an obsession with order, loving all aspects of organization and development.

Government & Law[edit]

They are frequently found in positions involving administration within the Federation, and are typically encountered as starship pursers, accountants, planning officials, and so forth. Though members of other races serve in the same capacities as well, the Za'tachk are favored for such work when they are available, and naturally gravitate toward such positions.

Calendar & Timekeeping[edit]

It is unknown how the Za'tachk form a calendar or track time although it is assumed that Za'tachk timekeeping is based upon the cycles and periods of their homeworld, Loza'tch (Wrenton 2330).
