Humans (Homo sapiens, ssp. Homo sapiens sapiens) are an intelligent humanoid species in the Star Citizen universe.


The species originated from Earth, Sol.


Human will be the only player character option for Squadron 42. Other species are planned for Star Citizen but only human will be offered initially.


Relativistic effects and cryo-stasis not withstanding, the average lifespan of a human is around 130 earth years,[1] with approximately 140 years as a rough maximum.[2]


There is no official religion recognized by the UEE, and the cosmic landscape is dominated by science.[3]

There is still a need for the divine in Humanity. The predominant religions of modernity exist in the future in some form. So there are patches of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc. existing throughout the Universe. Many of the religions have adapted with the times (incorporating alien species into doctrine, for example) and those that haven’t are slowly withering. The millennia-long grudges and intolerance between the religions has cooled, partially due to distance between worlds (if you don’t like someone you can move millions of miles away from them) but also because exposure to the Xi’An, Banu, Tevarin and Vanduul has strengthened the commonality between Humans and created a Humans-first, theology-second mentality.[3]

A handful of new religions have sprung up as well. Some are crossovers from alien species (there are Human traders who keep trinkets of Cassa, the Banu patron of luck) and some are new. The newest belief systems tend to be humanist in nature rather than overtly religious.[3]

Church of the Journey

The Church of the Journey is still not officially classified as a religion, it is a system of beliefs. It is commonly recognized to be but a simple moral code combined with general thirst for knowledge and experience.[4] It's chief holiday is Traveller's Day.[3]

Dave says since the average life span is 130+ it is not uncommon to see high level executives working this long. It is similar to a current day CEO working into her 70's.
