Description

  • Earth is the homeworld of the Human race, an industrialized and flourishing Class M planet also known as the 'Blue Planet' due to its large proportion of surface water. It's axis is tilted approximately 23.5 degrees which gives it four major seasons - Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. Temperatures vary significantly across the planet depending on the region and the season, making the world a very diverse place for all types of plant and animal life. Earth has one moon, Luna, which orbits outside of its Roche limit and is tidal locked to the planet. Unlike other moons, Luna is extremely large in proportion to its planet (about 27% the size of Earth) which means its gravity heavily influences both weather and water tides on Earth.

  • Earth has suffered several catastrophic 'World Wars' during its existence as the result of warring Human factions, and has also been heavily mined and exploited. Radiation and carbon dioxide levels were once dangerously high across most of the planet at the end of the 22nd century, but innovation, technology, and lifestyle changes have returned those levels to normal in the 24th century. Earth has a large population of almost 8 billion, mostly Humans but also many other races from the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. The planet is the home of Starfleet Command and the capitol of the United Federation of Planets.
