Always a proud and independent species, the Kalderans have taken advantage of the post-Commonwealth chaos to reassert their historic claim to much of the Greater Magellanic Cloud. Famous for their absolute commitment to democratic decision making at every level of their own society, the Kalderans have ironically proved themselves to be brutal suppressors of any and all rival governments within their self-proclaimed sphere of influence.
