|Description:||Strictly, a member of that human race which developed on Terra from the original human stock (H. sapiens). The term "Solomani" is often used to refer to members of the Solomani race, or, more palatably to some, to members of the human race of Solomani descent, or to members of the Solomani political movement. Its original meaning is obscure, but the word seems to have originally meant either "men of Sol" or "sole men."|
After the Solomani developed jump drives in 3038, Solomani humans scattered to the stars in several waves. Early colonization efforts first settled the worlds closest to Terra; the later conquest of the First Imperium and the establishment of the Rule of Man sent out more Solomani humans, primarily to occupy the former Vilani-controlled regions.
