Traveller Species

A Sophont is a lifeform that has evolved past "animal cognizance" into sentience. Sentience is characterized by many different combinations of talents, but chief among these is the use of technology for problem-solving.

Most Imperial scientists consider "technology", in its most base form to be "environmental manipulation, in whatever manner is physically possible for that specific race." Technology is more than starships and fancy gadgets, it also includes the vast number of philosophies, method of social organization, government types, and the many other cornerstones of technological civilization.
The term race can also refer to ethnic groups.

Races are broadly divided into two categories: Major Race and Minor Race. The commonly accepted criteria for Major race status is the invention of the Jump Drive.

All the Major Races except the Droyne dominate regions that cover multiple sectors. All lists include name and reference/source.

Major human races

Solomani?, many
Vilani?, many
Zhodani?, many

The Minor Human Races are offshoots of Humaniti, believed to be scattered to the stars by the Ancients about 300,000 years ago. Imperial scientists and researchers have found archaeological evidence of more than one hundred of these human races left throughout charted space, although fewer than fifty have managed to survive to the modern day.
