Humans are generally inquisitive, curious, helpful, and law-abiding. A thirst for exploration, self-improvement and advancement is strong. Also, there is evidence of much greed, jealousy of other races, and other negative attitudes. By 780AE, (780 years after the event of the Ovmörtacian Surge) Humans are a well established presense in the known Universe. 'Starbase One', the Universal Alliance (UA) Council Headquarters lies in a synchronous orbit between Earth and it's moon. The Aquillan Imperium, the UFA's biggest adversary, traces its roots back to Earth and Humans. This is a good example of the paridoxical duality of the Human species; on one hand, capable of great acts of self sacrifice and compassion...on the other, heinous acts of cruelty and greed...it all depends on the individual. Few races seem as adaptable, versitile, and varied as the Human. Many other species have a hard time understanding Human way of thought and ideals. Many have called the Human race The Great Creators and Destroyers due to their duality and the addictive way of Human influence that can usurp native ideal and style. Humans posess a strong sense of ethnic pride dispite centuries of the intermixing of the peoples. Heritage is as important as ever in modern times, but racism based on ethnic differences is virtually nonexistant. Some predjudice is found, however, focused towards extraterrestrials, the paranormal,and the raging issue over Artificial Intelligence. (A big debate continues over whether or not certain types of AI are considered 'sentience' or not)
Earth (IRTH), or Sol III primary. Moderate climate, mostly pleasant. Weather is controlled, but the unpredictable sometimes slips through.
24 hour day, 365 day year.
Many modern innovations originated from Human ingenuity. The most influential among the tech leaders has been Maxtercorp. They developed QGC (quantum gravitic compression) technology that is used extensively. TLD (translight drive); countergravitic impellers; and even artificial gravity were possible when Maxter figured out how to manipulate and refract gravitons. Human technology seems to be the standard by which others judge their own advancement, whether it be inferior or superior.
