Kzinti in Fandom
The following is a list of Kzinti appearences in all Star Trek related material which was published without a licence from Paramount Pictures and is as such to be considered fan fiction.
A six-week Kzinti incursion is mentioned in Ships of the Star Fleet [MA] taking place from August to September 2272.
- Note that the book sets TMP in 2267 and Star Trek II in 2287, so the given date needs to be modified. A linear shift with 2273 and 2285 as reference dates would result in the incursion to be set in 2276. (This might be the invasion described in “The Wristwatch Plantation” [MA].)
The authors of above mentioned book have developed online resource Federation Reference Series Online (FRS) building on their earlier works and expanding it. In their revised chronology (which is based on Geoffrey Mandel’s version) the following entries relate to Kzinti:
- 2056: DY-500 [MA] Woden Class Freighter is commissioned into service. The first of four Earth-Kzin Wars begin.
- 2082: The Earth-Kzin Wars are resolved with the Treaty of Sirius. The Kzin Patriarchy is confined to a “controlled” area of space and it’s military complex dismantled down to a handful of patrol cruiser spacecraft.
Masao Okazaki’s Starfleet Museum has the following entries for Kzinti:
- 2208: Six Kzinti vessels destroyed by Lancester-class cruiser USS Wolfe (NCC-1217) under command of Commodore Antonio Saxon in Korrok system.
- April 2226: Skrimishes with Kzinti raiders in Little Crescent sector: USS Caudiptyrex (NCC-1411) and USS Goshawk (NCC-1423) (both Kestrel class light cruisers) discovered six Chak-Chuf class heavy cruisers, engaged the enemy and delayed their travel to Federation colony on Slavin H-3. After five hours of continued attacks Starfleet re-enforcements from Starbase 55 arrived; semi-dreadnought USS Marduk (NCC-1281) and heavy cruiser Pearson (NCC-1220) could destroy five of the six heavy damaged intruders.
- 2231/32: Penguin squadrons stationed on Al-Burak-class carriers are assigned to Eighth Fleet along Klingon border and Twelfth Fleet along Kzinti border.
- January 2233: Vessels of Al-Burak-class carrier group USS Tiamat destroy Kzinti fleet in Monaba sector.
Online comic Tigers of Heaven by Charles Kelso and Kail Tescar feature a story about a meeting with a Kzinti ambassador at stardate 6842.1 (at least half a year after “The Survivor” [MA]). A Federation inquiry board meets aboard the Enterprise in Dramian [MA] space in order to discuss weapons inspections in the Kzinti territory, after Orion [MA] vessels have been sighted near Kzinti space.
In the Orion Press Fan Fiction Universe Kzinti are used from time to time in the stories. The Kzinti are said to be native to Sirius IX [MA]. In the following stories Kzinti are the main theme:
- In 2271 Scotty is ordered to watch over seven children of high ranking Starfleet members. When he goes on a camping trip to Tellar, one of the boys is abducted by Kzinti (Scotty’s Vacation by Mark C. Henrie)
- In 2275 they invaded Amerind [MA] and enslaved its inhabitants, but were driven out by a team lead by Sulu the USS Cooper’s executive officer (The Beggar’s Tooth by Randall Landers).
- In 2279 the plasma plague [MA] breaks out on Kzin. Only with medical help from the Federation the world is saved. Following this event the Kzinti join the Federation. Commander Uhura – captain of the Anwar Sadat which delivers the medicine – becomes some sort of hero in the Empire. Ensign Riit rembers this event in 2285 (In Harm’s Way by D. William Roberts).
One issue by Richard E. Mandel’s revised Federation Spaceflight Chronology focuses on the Earth-Kzin Wars 2049-2065. It establishes Kzinti aquired warp drive from the Tellarites and the fourth war was ended by Earth Forces dropping an asteroid on the Kzinti homeworld. Volume 4 can be downloaded from the FSC section.
