Descendents of humanity
The seat of Terran control is Earth, a fact that
has led them to believe that they are the last true
bastions of humanity. Terrans regard the Progen
and the Jenquai as mutant races but despite that,
the goal of the Terran Alliance is not, nor has
it ever been, territorial or martial conquest. The
Terran policy is toward profit and the expansion
of markets. To that end, Terran technology is more
sophisticated in some areas than that of even the
Jenquai. Terran technology tends to lend itself
to a broad industrial base and because Earth is
the Terran homeworld, food production is one of
its biggest industries.
The Terran race does have a major
it is rapidly burgeoning. On last
census there were some eighteen billion people
throughout the solar system who labeled themselves
Terran. In contrast, the Progen can claim only
two billion while the Jenquai have leveled off
and are holding steady at five hundred million.
Given its population demands, the Terran Alliance
is forever on a quest to expand its resource base
- something they are exceedingly good at doing.
