The Empire of Kilrah is an interstellar entity controlled by the Kilrathi. It is ruled by the Kilrathi Emperor.

Borders of Kilrathi space are in Vega, Gemini and Epsilon Sectors. Epsilon is roughly divided between Terran colonies and those originally settled by the Kilrathi.[1]


"Yes, we have a fleet, the best in the galaxy, but we don't have the infrastructure, the web of commerce. We conquer, destroy, populate a new world like a fiefdom, placing a few tens of thousands of our own blood where billions once existed. Those whom we suffer to live, labor in our factories as slaves, not allies. Then we expand yet again. We are like a hollow shell, the Confederation is a solid mass."
― Lord Vakka

The Kilrathi Empire is expansionist and imperialistic, expanding in space by conquering and subjugating other races.

To keep their subject races under their thumb, they did not permit them to have command of much in the way of technology.[2]


Terrans estimate that the Empire consists of 300-500 inhabited systems.
