Transhumanists


This is the self-applied term used to describe those who regard the Cyborg Humans as the next evolutionary stage for humanity.

The transhumanist movement regards aspects of the human condition, such as disability, suffering, disease, aging, and involuntary death as unnecessary and undesirable. Transhumanists look to cyborg technologies for these purposes even though reconstructive and geneering therapies have long ago ameliorated most obvious disabilities and the effects of injuries.

There are many adherents of this philosophy, and it is particularly common in Quadrant 7 - most notably in the failed 'Draconian Empire'.

The main politically active group supporting this philosophy is known as the Transhumanist Front, who are active to oppose anti-cyborg discrimination wherever they can. On some worlds the Transhumanist Front has been implicated in acts of violent protest.
