The Shizadam were a sentient species of crocodile-scaled centauroids with weak forearms. In the Pa'haquel alliance, the Shizadam often served as bureaucrats and record-keepers. At least some Shizadam followed a nomadic lifestyle. They were found in the Vela OB2 Association of the Gum Nebula, in the Beta Quadrant. (TTN novel: Orion's Hounds)


The Shizadam joined the Pa'haquel alliance at some point before the 2380s. They served as crewmembers on various Pa'haquel-led skymounts.

In 2380, the Pa'haquel alliance made first contact with the United Federation of Planets when the Starfleet science vessel USS Titan arrived in the sector to explore the Gum Nebula. (TTN novel: Orion's Hounds)
