Chunquen are an extinct race of aquatic beings that were native to a watery world. They are similar to Humans in the aspect that both sexes are sentient, something the Kzinti find odd.

The Kzinti attempted to enslave them, but the Chunquen put up a good fight, attacking Kzinti from under the oceans using submarines to fire nuclear tipped missles at Kzinti Spaceships. The Kzinti eventually defeated the Chunquen by boiling their oceans, causing the Chunquen to be extinct some time before the First Man-Kzin War in 2366 C.E.[1]
