As advised in #wingnut, the article seems okay, so the fact-check template was removed. - Wedge

Should this be moved to Human and terran and human be swapped? This page should explain the term Terran as it relates to humans from Earth and as a generic term used by those not from or of Earth. Humans will need a separate entry with basically this articles text inserted. --Dundradal 20:28, 1 September 2010 (CDT)

I'm not sure about the finer details of this organisation, so I'll leave that to someone else with a clearer idea of what needs to be done. I do want to say that I agree that 'Human' should be the over-arching classification and that 'Terran' should be a sub-set of that class. That is, a Human from Earth, as you suggested. I think we established that the term 'Terran' is not synonymous and interchangeable with a member of the Terran Confederation, since there are many from the Confederation who are not from Earth, and perhaps more importantly, there are members of the Confederation who are not Human. - Wedge
