History of the Organization: Fred was an Orla planet surveyor from the Kurr Association. Fred found a wonderful industrial age planet and a Rishan artifact at the same time. Poor Fred.
Fred was encountered by Starbase 600 seeking protection from the monkey people that wanted to kill him. Shortly there after the monkey people arrived demanding that Fred be turned over for killing. Certain behavioral methodology caused Admiral Hailey to do a "wait a minute". Investigation proved that the monkey people were Kliges'chee type clients, and Fred was the comptroller.
Fred underwent several months of mental therapy at STB-600 to help him cope with his new state. No one had a clue as how to reverse it. Fred is doing much better, and the Fredites are an instant feedback as to Fred's mood.
Historically it is wondered if that was the race maker used on the Ane and Unicorns. Neither species wishes to keep the hulk. It is also wondered if it was in the hands of the Kliges'chee considering the settings it was found on.
For twenty years this situation remained the norm, then Fred died. Suddenly all of the Anjing Kera were individuals again. A spastic shock followed by a massive celebration Marking the new holiday Everyone's Birthday!
The Anjing Kera remember the time as Fred. They remember the time before Fred, those old enough. The planet is holding it together while people piece lives back together and get back to the business of living.
