The Klackons are a race of insectoids, very much like ants. They have a hive mind, and are predisposed to industrial production. They were assimilated along with their allies, the Bulrathi about 1,000 years ago, and because of their skills in industrial production, they are generally used in building Mrrshan weapons and ships, At least those that are non-organic. They make up the industrial force behind all of the planets that are mineral rich at least, and they also make their homes on the moons of Cha'aan.
