Humans are one of the major civilizations in Master of Orion.
Background[edit | edit source]
The Human race has a bloody history. Centuries of constant conflict have left them stubborn and seemingly aggressive to some species, however they have also learned the values of perseverance and duty. Humanity has come a long way in a short time. Not long ago they existed as 200+ sovereign nations, each with its own agenda. Now they've learned to look past their differences and form a unified republic, but it was not without fault. The early days of de-nationalization sparked global conflict which culminated in a space race between two major powers. Both built and launched colonial vessels, but only one arrived safely, the other wouldn't be heard from again for almost 200 years.
Humanity exists now as a noble species who put trade and diplomacy before military might but that's not to say they will not stand up for themselves. There's an old Human expression they like to use when speaking to the other powers of the galaxy, "Speak softly and carry a big stick." This philosophy is at the very heart of mankind's interaction with the wider galaxy. Led by a President, the Human Republic has been known to be a stabilizing force and have almost never refused to aid a civilization in need. They're also known for their military might, which they use mostly for defensive purposes.
