The Chakuun were a warlike species that were conquered by the Tholians and used as their shock troops. In 2254 the Chakuun invaded the Federation.(EV comic: "The Fallen")


The Chakuun were, by choice, the warrior-elite of the Tholian Assembly. In exchange for their services, the Tholians provided them with weapons and ships such as the infamous Chakuun ghostship.

The Chakuun held little regard for humans, believing them to be an arrogant child race that judged other beings on human values.(EV comic: "The Fallen")


The Chakuun were originally a minor but warlike race. The Chakuun were annexed by the Tholian Assembly "four hundred cycles" before to 2254, and offered their services as soldiers. The Chakuun eventually became an elite military force within the Assembly.

Aftermath of Chakuun bombardment on Theta Kalyb
The Chakuun shared the Tholian understanding of a dynamic, shifting cosmos. In 2254, when the Tholians realigned their territory to compensate for the shifting of stars, the Chakuun launched an offensive against the Federation, destroying colonies on Jubal and Theta Kalyb that they regarded as invasions. At the Battle of Theta Kalyb, the Chakuun succeeded in destroying the Nelson class scoutships USS Brazzaville and USS Providence as well as the Miranda class USS Achilles. In previous encounters, the Chakuun destroyed the colony of New Milan and a starship Claire Thorn was serving on.(EV comic: "The Fallen")

The Chakuun were a semi-insectoid species that were conquered by the Tholians sometime prior to the mid-23rd century. As a client race of the Tholian Assembly, the Chakuun were used as shock troops by the Tholian military.

During the Tholian-Federation conflicts of the 23rd century, the Chakuun frequently carried out devastating strikes against Federation colonies. In 2254, contact between the Chakuun and Starfleet at Theta Kalyb led to a cessation of hostilities between the Federation and the Assembly, once the two powers differing interpretations of territorial alignment were understood.
