The Sinister Hegemony are the first intelligent extraterrestrials discovered in Vaikan history.
The Sinister Hegemony was structured as a socialist dictatorship, forming on the basis of interdependence between different alien species. It was an attempt to create a perfect society.
All members of a particular alien race were assigned to a particular task. To achieve this, over numerous generations, eugenics and genetic modification molded virtually every member of a specific alien species to all have similar personalities, mental skills and physical abilities suited for their caste. As a result, conquered alien species became discouraged from leaving the Sinister Hegemony as they could not function as a society on their own.
They controlled at least 1,000 different star systems and lasted at least 500 years before internal collapse.
