Human-Humans first flew into outside of the solar system on December 4th 2123. Due to a discovery on the planet Pluto. What was found was called the Rift Gates the rift gates allowed ships to travel faster than the speed of light by tearing through a dimensional hole. By 2145 humans found that they weren't alone in the universe. Not less than a month later full trade was opened to aliens and Terra-forming began across the universe. In 2345 everything changed with the emergence of the United Human Federation. A dictoral regime seeking the control of the universe by humans. They declared any plant that had a human settlement on it was now owned by the UHF. Then 2 years later the Contraband Laws came into effect. They stated that any particular item whether that it be art, movies, games, clothes, etc. that they felt turned you away from galactic conquest was fully illegal. That when smuggling started and Gold-Arm Jim appeared in 2446. Taking smuggling and piracy to a whole new level. After his death there are numerous organizations seeking to wrest control away from the UHF leaving sadly humans to be the most hated race in all the galaxy.
Bio-Droids-The first full scale A.I. was made in 2237 after the discovery that propelled humanity across the universe. The first droids where very slow and clunky and all around not very useful. Hence why they were where referred to as "clock workers" due to there limited speech and very mechanical look. Until the emergence of the Cromwell Protocol. The Protocol allowed robots to begin mimicking human behaviors. Thus being able to mimic behaviors of more experienced ship men thus upping efficiency. But they where still slow to move and prone to constant repair. And with that the bio-droids were created to held with ship travel and other crew functions. So far the most advanced can almost be considered human due to the ability to eat and drink. But the new bio droids are now coated in a special polymer that looks and feels like human skin.
Malttans-A race of bear like humanoids that stand at most 7 foot tall . They come from the planet Malthusians-9 and tend to walk with those who they consider in their "tribe". Prone to hating humans after the Tribe Wars of 2356 after the Human Federation firebombed their home after a full scale revolt against contraband laws. After the firebombing Malttans are very rare to find due to 90 percent of the population being cooked alive. They mostly make work as merks and mechanics.
Amsuta-Characterized by their six arms Amsuta's come from the planet Hindi. They usually stand at 7 foot tall. Males are usually purple. While females are blue. There eyes are pitch black and very wide. Another interesting thing is they have no visible body hair whats so ever. In the Amsuta culture females are usually sent out in the universe on a pilgrimage to prove themselves worthy of their people. While the males learn about politics and such. Females have a unique ability to read the thoughts of others by touching them with one of the three fingers on their hands.
(That's all i got for now if you any ideas please post them I'm open to suggestion)

Bio:Jack always had an obsession with space. And being an orphan that's all he had was his dream. He would always watch trade ships leave port on Earth. Making it a resolution to get off of Earth. He soon learned how to fight and gamble. At age 17 he made his special revolver the Dead Man's Hand from parts he stole from a UHF out post by sneaking through the vents. At age 18 got into his first smuggling job getting his trademark outfit as a reward. At 20 he won a Sleuth in a crooked poker game by cheating. Naming it the Golden Lady Josh set his eyes out to the stars looking for a crew.
Ship Types:Sleuth-A small sized craft at least 300 feet long at 200 feet tall. The Sleuth isn't sanctioned by the UHF due to its small size and used commonly by pirates due to it's high speed and maneuverability. It comes equiped with 2 XTRC-Hellfire laser cannons mounted on the underside. the control deck is in the front of the ship. The interior has all the comforts of home and can hold enough supplies to hold 9 for a least a year. The main thrusters are 2 Kimsawua Ion Thrusters for high speed.
Premise:"Harr. So you came to hear the tale of Gold Arm Jim." The first mate remarks as you pull up a stool.
"Can't say I'm surprised, all this old dog does is recount his story. It happened in 2456, about ten years ago now. At this point humanity was as bountiful, and aggressive, as locusts. Or whatever variant you alien bastards have. Didn't took long before contraband was declared, and smugglers followed. They grew into proper pirates, what went for that name those days. Collection of small ships who boarded for small cargo and the lot."
The first mate spits into the fire.
"Lousy bastards got us in so much trouble. They were the ones that put the law on edge. Harr, it was a real bloodbath for months, really, with armed patrols behind every rock and lurking in every nebula."
"At least, that was how things went before Gold Arm Jim appeared on the scene. He was a proper pirate, with name and all. He appeared on the scene with a bang, literary. He raided a fecking five-ship cargo with full-on protection in a barge and minimal crew. Don't know how he did it, but sure know that he was filthy stinkin' rich after that. But for some reason he thought this wasn't enough. He led twenty more campaigns, gathering riches beyond whatever any of you gobheads could imagine. I've served on his ship for seven of those. He was one of the best ship-masters that I could ever serve on. Shame he got captured. Still, trying to capture him decimated the fleet of the laws, and left us other pirates alot of free game out there."
He takes another swig from his drink. Then he leans forward, looking around the room.
"Listen, not alot of people know this, but I was there when he was hung. Lotsa crimes called out and guilty of all of them. They killed him with the rope, but before he got killed he said something. He called out that 'all of the prissy boys who fancied themselves pirates were free to his treasures' that it was on the 3rd Planet."
He leaned back again.
"Harr, I have no idea what he meant by that. All I know is that he's the one that paved the road all of us walk on these days."
