Planet of Origin: Aktarka, an earth-type planet with two major continents and two very large moons that orbits around a G type star in the Milky Way galaxy. Although they will most likely refer to themselves as coming from the continent of the two moons (Continent des deux lunes) than as Aktarkans.
Aktarkans are humanoids that are undiscernable from normal Earth humans which have developped a pacifist non-expansionnist space faring technological civilisation more than 2000 years ago. They are known to have visited the solar system and have established some bases at least on Earth and the Moon. They are governed by a council and practice a strict birth control policy according to which a family cant have more than 2 children, which even seems to be an exception. Their population is very low and they are widely spread on the continent of Aktarka which always faces its two moons. They are known to send emissaries to less advance humanoid civilisations (which they call Inferior planets) and discretely tutor them.
If Aktarkans and humans have common origin remains unknown but their similarity lets believe it could be the case.
Aktarkans have mastered gravity manipulation, FTL travel, interstellar range communication and teleportation and limited time-travel. They appear to use automation and robotics as little as possible, same thing for genetic manipulations, although they seem to posses advanced knowledge in the field .
