Jem'Hadar

The Jem’Hadar are believed to be the only known Dominion presence residing in the Alpha Quadrant. And it's not precisely clear where their loyalties lie.

Expect to see quite a bit of the Jem’Hadar. Despite their fractured status after the Dominion War, they’re still frequently sighted in Cardassian space.

Throughout your adventures, you’ll interact with the Jem’Hadar in a number of missions and Episodes. By far one of the most combative and adversarial species in the galaxy, friendly conversations between the Federation and Jem’Hadar are few and far between.

The Klingon Empires view of the Jem'Hadar

The Jem’Hadar are interesting. They were on the losing side of the Dominion War, which no doubt infuriated them. I get the feeling they’re not used to losing.

Most of them went back to the Gamma Quadrant with their Changeling masters, no doubt to lick their wounds. A few, though… a few stayed here. What I would have given to see the looks on the Changelings’ faces when they realized that some of their perfect soldiers were rebelling against them! Heh. Not that Changelings have real faces; deceitful piles of slime that they are.

The Jem’Hadar, though. The ones that remained call themselves the Alphas. For Alpha Quadrant. Not a tremendously creative name, but what can you expect from a species created to be a servant race? They were never designed to be imaginative.

They fight well. They are fearless in battle, and clever. Almost honorable. But it is hard to respect such a species. They have no passion, no art! They fight not because they chose to, but because they were designed to. Still, those remaining in this quadrant are different from their predecessors. They had the imagination to turn against their masters and take their independence.

They serve as mercenaries now. Still fighting the battles of others. But they may yet prove to be a threat in their own right. They are like a cornered targ. It may seem that they’re defeated, and no longer dangerous. In reality, they may be more dangerous than ever. They have nothing to lose, and much to gain. They will take risks that more established species may not.

The Jem’Hadar bear watching. With luck, they will become truly worthy opponents.

The Federations view of the Jem'Hadar

They were bred to be the perfect soldiers. Completely fearless, completely loyal, completely deadly. They were the military force of the Dominion, and completely devoted to their Changeling masters; they worshipped the Changelings as gods. However, that is no longer completely the case.

The Changelings (or Founders, depending on your perspective) engineered the Jem’Hadar. Adults of the species are reptilian in appearance, tremendously strong, capable of “shrouding” themselves from visual and sensor observation, and are in possession of very sharp vision themselves. They also require neither sustenance nor sleep. However the Changelings, with their typical paranoia regarding solids, also engineered a control mechanism into the Jem’Hadar.

The Jem’Hadar are incapable of producing a necessary enzyme, requiring regular ingestion of a drug known as Ketracel White. In some senses, this was a brilliant move, allowing the Changelings to control their super soldiers even in the event that those soldiers might come to resent them. At the same time, it is also a dangerous weakness. One that we (the Federation and our allies) were able to use to our advantage during the Dominion War. Without the Ketracel White the Jem’Hadar lose control of their violent impulses, ultimately fighting and killing both their allies and each other.

Also during the Dominion War, the Changelings began manufacturing a new variant of the Jem’Hadar within the Alpha Quadrant. This variant is more independent in temperament than their Gamma Quadrant bred fellows. As a result, the Jem’Hadar Alphas, as they are called, have actually repudiated their Changeling masters.

These Alphas have become a source of great potential disturbance within the Alpha Quadrant. They are, as of yet, a somewhat unknown quantity. Our information indicating that they have settled upon the planet Devo II, where there was a pre-existing Ketracel White manufacturing plant left by the Changelings. They have also taken a contract with Gul Madred, the leader of the Cardassian True Way, an organization calling for Cardassia to return to military rule and xenophobia. At this juncture they are merely guarding his mining operations.
