Choblik

Notes

Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : Choblik1
Political Affiliation : Federation
Quadrant : Unknown

A Federation member species, the Choblik are bipedal, approximately a metre high. They resemble a short, furred ostrich with a herbivore's head, a short neck, and a long prehensile tail. They lack arms, instead using mechanical appendages.1 Their eyes and other senses are also enhanced, allowing them to perceive a great range of information, up to and including shifts in the quantum field.2

In and of themselves, Choblik are non-sentient. They achieve sentience via further cybernetic enhancements in their brains. The origin of these enhancements is lost to history; the Choblik themselves believe that an alien species visited their planet in the distant past and 'uplifted' the Choblik. They refer to these aliens as the 'Great Builders'.1

The Choblik regard themselves as ultimate rationalists, unable to believe anything unless it is supported by empirical evidence.1 Referring to a Choblik as an excellent problem-solver is considered to be one of the greatest compliments that they can receive.3

Choblik display trust by rolling their neck in a manner which exposes their jugular, making them vulnerable to attack.3
