This track plays whenever you're talking to the Humans in Master of Orion II, a race of beings that hail from the third rock from the Sun and... well I'm sure I don't need to explain any more about our origins as a race:). Humans in the Master of Orion series are portrayed as a race of shrewd diplomats and traders so they're the ideal race to play if you're going for a diplomatic victory, thanks to their "charismatic" trait. They are also the only empire in the game to have a democratic form of government which gives bonuses to revenue and research although spying isn't as effective under a democracy (thanks to an emphasis on personal freedoms) and you're prohibited from annihilating captured aliens.
The theme for the Humans was a favourite for quite some time since we somehow get this cool techno track which the other races cannot have. However, since I always tended to play as the Humans in MOO 2 games, I actually didn't get to hear much of the theme in most of my playthroughs. I also like how they have a bald guy as the leader - I guess Jean-Luc Picard from TNG had quite an impact on 90s sci-fi, showing you don't need hair to be an awesome leader :).
