Alliance Fact Book
One of Humanity’s
primary assets is the overall adaptability and curiosity of its people.
Humans love to explore, and the instant they got their hands on
hyperspace technology, deep survey missions were being sent to every
corner of the Galaxy. Humans also appreciate freedom, and eagerly
flocked to new colony sites in search of new opportunities. A generally
friendly race, they had little trouble meeting aliens and trading with
them, in the process quickly advancing their level of technology up to a
level where they could safely defend themselves from aggressive neighbors.
Humans are many things: diplomats, traders, farmers, designers,
doctors, explorers, and much more. They are the ones who can do it all.
Yet, despite their apparent friendliness and curiosity, they are a race
fraught with internal problems. All too often their natural
aggressiveness turns inward upon itself. Religious and ethnic groups are
still at odds with each other despite centuries of alliance.
Good-natured competition between nation-states and colonies all too
often turns sour. The government, stable on the surface, internally
struggles for control over increasingly independent-minded planets.
Telepaths and mundanes remain constantly at odds, separated by genetics
and decades of dichotomy. The human race may appear strong and confident
from the outside, but internally, they are still struggling to find a
measure of stability with themselves.
