Terrans: The descendents of lost human colonists who fled Earth 500 years after the events of Babylon 5. However, they wanted to get away from Earth and the violence, and froze themselves in cryosleep chambers. Unfortunately, a malfunction in their jump engines caused the twenty colony ships to become trap in Jump Space for a million years. Finally, their ships came out of Jump Space and landed on the other side of the galaxy. Now, far from the Interstellar Alliance and the other races, the Terrans have begun new lives in the Age of the Young.

Zeorasans: A race of furry bipeds, the Zeorasans are skilled spies, soldiers, scientists, and artists. Amazingly, the Zeorasans are capable of having children with Terrans.
