A Type 0, (Commonly called an MK0 or a K0 civilization) is a budding civilization that ranges its technology anywhere from small villages, to local space travel. They extract all of their energy on their home world, and do it in the most efficient manner they possibly can do it.

These civilizations are very susceptible to natural disasters, threats from space, and corruption. About 30% of all civilizations that become sapient pass beyond Type-0.
