The single most destructive period of time in human history, the Human-Taik War was a decade-long battle of attrition with the ruthless taik. The war claimed nearly two thirds of the human population, and left Earth as a crumbling husk of a planet. It ended only once the Omorra, impressed by human adaptability and ingenuity, ordered the taik to cease fire.

The human race has never recovered from the battle, and, despite making a genuine come-back, are still a minority race in the galactic community.
