Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
Rather than the far-fetched concept of "parallel evolution", the theory states that all human races were transported to their current homeworlds by an alien race known as the Ancients, for reasons which even today remain unclear.
The approximate date of this scattering of "Humaniti" has been established as -300,000.
When Terra was incorporated into the Imperium in 588, a small historical mission reviewed the fossil records of Terra and verified much of haut-Devroe's work. The hypothesis was already generally accepted by the majority of the human population in the Imperium.
More than 40 known human races have been located (several more of them failed to adapt to their new worlds and are now extinct); only three rose to widespread prominence: they are the Solomani, the Vilani, and the Zhodani. Each of the three is considered to be a Major Race.
