The Oath of Fealty is an agreement between the Ur-Quan Kzer-Za and a species defeated by them. By accepting this oath, the species becomes a Fallow Slave to the Hierarchy. As the term is only used when refering to Earth's defeat, an alternative interpretation is that the term is specific to Earth's capitulation.

The oath (at least for Earth) stipulated (at least) the following:

  • The entire population of the species is encased on a world (or possibly worlds) beneath an impenetrable Slave Shield, except for the crew running the Starbase.
  • The species must maintain a Starbase to service and refuel Hierarchy vessels.
  • The species may have no space vessels of its own.
  • The Ur-Quan Kzer-Za resupply the Starbase at least every five Earth years. At this time the Starbase's crew are also relieved by fresh personnel from the planet below.

Violation of the oath may result in punishment against the transgressors and their species. Continued or flagrant violation may even result in the summary extermination of the transgressing race.
