this band of criminals roamed the border of the Kathol Outback near the Kathol Rift from a base on Qu'mock Station. They preyed primarily on the Uukaalbian society, but hoped to locate Yvara and develop a human hive-mind based on the Yvarema physiology. The confederation was formed about 25 years before the Battle of Endor, by a group of scientists who wanted to find new uses for unusual bio-technology. They believed that modern technology was responsible for sapping the strength and spirit of any being it touched,and hoped to replace most items with biological equivalents. Over the next two decades, the Qektoth Confederation turned into a militant group that hoped to gain control by preying on those beings weakened by technology. Led by Trann Shoame, the confederation unleashed a biochemical agent mated with a strange, biotechnology found near the Kathol Rift, on the crew of the FarStar to test its effectiveness. The confederation also traded some of its technology to Moff Sarne, in return for starships and crews. Drigor Tarrens also discovered that the leadership of the Qektoth Confederation had taken skin samples from all its employees, and was using the cells to create enhanced clones without their knowledge or consent. He threatened to expose them, but was apprehended and sentenced to death. Tarrens fled to Uukaablis, but later exposed the Confederation's plans with the help of the FarStar's crew. The Qektoth later discovered the Lifeline Project, and monitored the progress of the FarStar through Kathol Sector. When they learned of the Battle of Kathol, the Qektoth decided to try and take the DarkStryder technology from Sarne by helping the New Republic forces. However, the three warships the Confederacy sent to Kathol were poorly armed, and they were quickly knocked out of the battle.
