Humans are a race in Starbound.


Information was recently discovered from the open beta about the humans, all info here should be regarded as a Work in Progress.

Humans are a technological advance and intelligent species, rapidly advancing technologically and socialy, they were the first species to research and engage in space travel for science and entertainment, humanity began to explore the stars however certain "limitation" constricted their colonization efforts to their own solar system. 

With resource rapidly depleting on Earth humanity turned to war as the major Earth Superpowers fought over the limited resources in the sol system, during a lengthy conflict over the planet Mars a unknown and huge tenticle like entity attacked and layed waste to earth, destroying the single unifiying nations of Earth,  casting the few survivors into the vast galaxy.

The player is one of the few survivors of the Earth massacre, your crewmates having recently being slaughted by a smaller tenticle entity you brought onboard.

(It should be noted that the WIP human intro video portrays humanity as a single unified and peaceful empire instead of a more modern day representation of separate nation states)

Gameplay Effects Edit

If the Player chooses to be a Human, certain things are different:

  • Have a larger inventory space, hinted that alternate effects may be added due to the base human effect being "dull".


  • Lore wise Humans are the 2nd most technologically advance species behind the Apex and were the first species to conduct space travel.
