The star people were created after the war between Earth and Mars, as a means to avoid future conflicts. Within a short span of time, the new subspecies not only rebuild civilization and create the Solar Empire, but focus on interstellar colonization. Using large ships carrying the genetic material of the race, they began to colonize the galaxy and in a few millennia created a galactic empire.
Tragically, this empire ended with the invasion of the ancient race Qu, which transformed nearly all humans into primitive creatures. The few of the star people who escaped took refuge in large hollow vessels built from hollowed-out asteroids, becoming the spacer (and later, the Asteromorph) faction of humanity.
