The cooperative, altruistic citizens of the Confederation are appalled at the dark, contentious, murderous changes wrought upon the galactic society since the inclusion of the Terrans. Human paragons of virtue and courage did, indeed, spare the Confederation devastation and genocide by the galactic reavers known only as 'the enemy', but human aggression and martial prowess influence bio-field energies among the many species comprising the Confederation. How did humanity survive their blood-soaked past and how could a sentient species arise on the red, roaring tempest that is Earth? Here is a mystery begging solution before it is too late for all the galactic citizenry. All must change, albeit each species has its own genesis limiting how much change they can accept.
