The Sred*Ni are a technologically advanced Minor Non-Human Race with a Non-humanoid appearance.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Sred*Ni (pronounced "shred-k-nee") are an arachnid-like mammallianoid life form native to the world I'Sred*Nihil (Beyond 2113) and similar in appearance to the non-sophont Fulacinian Trapper of Fulacin (Spinward Marches 2613).

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Sred*Ni are fully sentient, although they evidence a communal mind which is telepathically linked and augmented. Due to their mental commonality, the Sred*Ni are unable to recognize and appreciate the subtleties of such concepts as: "free will"; "individuality"; "personal property"; "individual rights and responsibilities"; and similar individual-oriented concepts.

Social Organization: 1105[edit]

Sred*Ni society is octamerous, consisting of three i-Zreen ("classes"), subdivided into eight percipiences:

  1. The Tertiary i-Zreen consisting of Breeders and Technicians.
  2. The Secondary i-Zreen of Merchants, Hunters and Warriors.
  3. The Primary i-Zreen consisting of Leaders, Sages and Coalescers.

Any decision made, in order to be binding to all, must be sponsored and arbitrated by a selected "consciousness" composed of one of each of the latter seven percipiences, breeders having no decision-making responsibilities.

Government & Politics (Leadership)[edit]

The interstellar polity of the Sred*Ni is known as the I'Sred*Ni Protectorate or I'Sred*Ni Web of Worlds. The governmental center of this polity is a seven-worlded authority known as the I'Sred*Ni Heptad.


This race is primarily located in the following areas:
