The Kzinti Patriarchy, also known as the Patriarchy, was the political government of the Kzinti.

History and specifics[]

Kzinti Empire territory

Star chart of former Kzinti territory.

By the 21st century, a star chart of its territory in treaty boundary quadrant 0 showed it encompassing such systems as Achernar, Aldebaran, Alpha Carinae (Canopus), Antos, Cochrane, Gamma Hydra, Medusa, Menkar, and Questar M-17, as well as the site of the Kalandan outpost. (ST reference: Star Trek Maps)

The Kzinti Patriarchy had a history of military conflicts with Earth, as the two planets fought a series of four wars between them. Collectively known as the Earth-Kzin Wars, Kzin was always the aggressor and Earth was always the victor. The first of which was fought sometime after first contact in 2063, and the last was concluded by the end of the 2060s. (TAS episode & Log Ten novelization: The Slaver Weapon)

Zefram Cochrane's recent development of warp drive was leveraged to successfully halt attempted Kzinti invasions and led to their surrender. (TOS comic: "From Sputnik to Warp Drive")

Following the signing of the Treaty of Sirius, the Kzin government and all Kzinti territories were essentially demilitarized. The Kzinti were forbidden from possessing any sort of weapons or starships – except police vessels, which were used solely for the purpose of peacekeeping. Disallowed activity was disavowed through claims of privateering. (TAS episode & Log Ten novelization: The Slaver Weapon, TOS comic: "The Wristwatch Plantation")

As a political power, The Patriarchy became isolated during the 24th century and not involved during the Dominion War. Privateer forces were more commonly observed.[citation needed]

First splinter timeline[]

In the 2380s, Romulan politician Anlikar Ventel grew concerned that regional stability was at risk if the Patriarchy, or other independent states like the Gottar Hegemony or Watraii Hegemony, acquired quantum slipstream drive technology. (ST - Typhon Pact novel: Plagues of Night)

Appendices[]

Background[]

In the Star Fleet Universe games, they became a powerful empire known as the Kzinti Hegemony, mortal enemies of that universe's Lyran Star Empire. The Kzin homeworld is called "Kzin" by all other races save the Kzinti, who call it "Homeworld." It orbits the star 61 Ursae Majoris, has stronger surface gravity and both a longer day and year than Earth. The Patriarch rules from a large palace on the world. At the end of the last Earth-Kzin War, Kzin was occupied and disarmed by the human armies.

In the Star Fleet Command games based on the Star Fleet universe they are simply changed from the Kzinti Hegemony to the Mirak Star League.

Rumors continue to persist that the Tzenkethi were based on the Kzinti, but this appears to be a coincidence based mainly on the similarity of the two races' names.
