The Major Race/Minor Race scheme has its exceptions and special cases.



Description (Specifications)[edit]

Many laymen consider such species to be minor races, but since they have had no chance to invent jump drive on their own, but may be descended from races that did, they don't fit the usual definition of either.

  • Most scientists use the term Variant Human Race to indicate these genetically engineered populations.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Variant Human Races may or may not rate their own taxonomic name.

  • This often depends on political considerations, although sometimes there are sound practical reasons for an omission.

Worlds & Sectors (Astrography)[edit]

Variant Human Races can be found throughout Charted Space. Part of what makes it Charted Space is the present of higher sophont life. No human races are believed to be located beyond the frontiers of Charted Space. However, many rumors that human life exists beyond the range of the Ancients spread throughout the spaceways.
