From Master of Orion Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are fourteen major civilizations in Master of Orion (ten in the base game), each with their own appearance, backstory, personality, and specific racial traits. Up to nine of them may be present in the galaxy during a game.

As no universe is perfect, there are certain racial biases at play.
