(Zhdant 2719 A6547C8-F)

As is the case with all the homeworlds of human races, Zhdant is an Ancient site.  In historic times, in addition to being the home of the Zhodani, Zhdant was also the home of a large population of chirpers.  From this population of chirpers the Zhodani were able to learn their first few lessons in the previously unknown skill of psionics.  All of the chirpers which made their home on Zhdant, as well as a population of them on Viepchaki, Zhdant's moon, were killed accidentally by a plague left over from the Ancient's Final War.
