Alpha Tucanae I is the homeworld of the Zoq-Fot-Pik. It is the innermost planet in the Alpha Tucanae star system, and is the only world in that system that possesses a moon. Covered in forests and beautiful wilderness, this Redux World is the home to a variety of lifeforms. Unlike other life bearing worlds, four different sentient species evolved simultaneously on this planet: the Zoq, Fot, Pik, and Zebranky (now extinct). Besides the Zoq, the Fot, and the Pik, the planet is also home to several non-sentient lifeforms such as airborne zooplankton, rocky fungal clingers, wood Jukes, and tree Narfs.

Due to the renewal of the Doctrinal Conflict right on top of the Zoq-Fot-Pik sphere of influence, all of their off-world colonies have been destroyed, making Alpha Tucanae I the only planet inhabited by the Zoq-Fot-Pik. The Zoq-Fot-Pik also implement a type of planetary shield for their world, which can deflect (though not always effectively) large incoming objects.
