The Zoq, the Fot, and the Pik
The Zoq, Fot and Pik are 3 separate races which evolved simultaneously on a jungle like world. Zoq-Fot-Pik look like little green plants, blue springy things, and mute one eyed creatures, though usually even they can't say which is which. Having once been threatened by the carnivorous Zebranky they formed an alliance and destroyed them.
This alliance led to very big technological advances which eventually formed the current Zoq-Fot-Pik race. They spend much time together and usually argue about many things, including Frungy, which is a sport some Zoq-Fot-Pik are obsessed about.
Their fighter-ship is called the Stinger and is known for its deadly tongue attack.
The Zoq-Fot-Pik first entered the galactic fray when they found their colony worlds were playing host to terrible space battles. These battles unleashed titanic forces as the two sides fought, and when they missed each other the small Zoq-Fot-Pik colonies suffered.
Having heard from "the great crystal ones", seemingly a reference to the Chenjesu, of several races who often helped each other, the Alliance of Free Stars, they set about making contact. The Alliance by this point however was already defeated. Years later The Captain met with them at Rigel. They relayed their dismays to him and begged for his help. It turned out that the battle taking place in their space was the Ur-Quan ceremonial Doctrinal Conflict.
The militarily weak Zoq-Fot-Pik were only marginally helpful in defeating the Ur-Quan, but the value of the information they brought early on to the New Alliance of Free Stars cannot be denied.
