The Three Races
The Tetch race has completely distanced themselves from original human custom and ideas. They have use genetic science to enhance their bodies and metal train to focus their minds. All Tetch have large numbers of nanites in they bodies, as well, to further enhance their bodies and minds.
The Tetch live in scattered group in remote areas of space. They have been know to settle in asteroid belt, moons, and hostel planets. Often their settlement are in dome and/or under ground structures. The Tetch have a universal network which all Tetch can use by way of their nanites. The Tetch has the lowest birth-rate of the three races, but have the longest live span (two-three hundren years). Child are raised completely by the committee. Education is mainly done by the Tetch network and later reinforced through action. The Tetch value the ability to do and focus on many thing at one time. This ability show in their sports where players many need to track two or more balls in a rotating sphere with changing goals and changing gravity.
The method of the Tetch power-plants is largely unknown. It can deliver huge amount of power, without burning up fuel or creating radiation.
The Tetch have very few wheeled transport. They have many space-craft, both large and small, all with QSDs (Quantum Slip Drive).
The Tetch's mechs are large (about three stories tall) and carry their own Tetch power-plant. They are more agile that they seem, especially when controlled by a Tetch pilot. The interface is wireless and makes the mech an extinction of the pilots body. The pilot is kept in a liquid-gel filled and windowless cockpit.
The Covan believe in living with nature and in hard work. They have shaped their social evolution through planned societies. The Covan have used limited genetic treatment to stop genetic dieses and handicaps. Their technology is base on renewable and non-wasteful ideas. They live on undeveloped un-hostel planets and a few space-stations.
The Covan live in small towns radiating out of form larger cities. Broadband communications reach nearly all homes. Education is done both at home and at community centers. The Covan have a well develop public transportation system, many people ride un-motorized bikes the sort distances to train-stations. Community host non-professional sporting event. Covans society makes it easy to move to different communities, make it usual for them to work 3 to 4 years in one field and then change jobs. Covan freely control their birthrate to match their death-rate, living long healthy lives of up to 1 hundred years. Covans take great pride in the beauty of their planets.
The Covan powerplants using a ZeroSpace Inducer which draw radiant energy from an artificial pocket of zerospace, when change it to electric power by a stack of reaction plates.
The Covan use low or on emission engines to run their many trains and busses, as well as, the few small vehicles they use. The Covan maintain fleets of space battle cruisers and cargo ships for interplanetary trade and defense.
Covan mechs stand about 2 stories tall. They carry many hand held weapons and have mounts for modular extinctions; giving Covan mechs a huge range of customablility. Covan pilot have implants letting them "jack-in" to their mechs interface. There are many manual controls and readouts, as well.
The Mar have had many civil wars. The last great war divided the Mar into may Houses. The House constantly attacking and raid each other and the Covan if they think that they can. The Mar think of themselves as the original humans, live as their ancestors did. The Mar use no genetics to change themselves. Many of the Mar's technologies are wasteful.
The Mar society is feudalistic. Houses control land and faculties, like mills and plants. This total control causes the Houses to fight over resources. The Mar live hard and short lives but have the highest birthrate. The Mar population is always in a state of growth.
The Mar power plants use a nuclear reaction, inside a magnetic drum, to get energy from a fuel cell. The large power plants can use the plasma that is left over from the fuel cell.
The have many aircraft transports and many space battleships.
Mar mechs are small, about 1 and a half stories tall. They have a nuclear reactor and use fuel cell. When a fuel cell is spent, it must me ejected and the next is dopped in to place. The spent fuel cells are pulsama filled and can be a danagous weapon.
