The Omniss are a pseudo-religious, philosophical movement espousing peaceful doctrines, the roots of the society dates back until the early 20th century on Terra [1]. The Omniss movement is especially prevalent among the agrarian worlds of the Outworlds Alliance. During the Reunification War the influence of the movement was at its height, because over 50 percent of the population were their followers. The sect flatly rejects nearly all forms of technology—only technologies directly associated with the preservation of life should be utilized by mankind. The Omniss argue all other forms of technology simply aid the ability for man to fight man. The Omniss missionaries go so far as to disrupt industry and protest development within the Periphery, and have been a factor in the lack of development within the Periphery.

The Omniss movement was founded on the Capellan world of Hsien. Whether the Omniss were founded as a direct result of the anti-war protests of Julius Santiago Avellar, or if the movement simply found a mouthpiece, is unclear. However, the Omniss migrated to the Avellar's home, the Periphery world Alpheratz, and helped to establish the Outworlds Alliance.

By 3064 the Omniss movement had found a homeworld on Dante. President Avellar has gone so far as to allow the world to grant only montly visitation from offworld sources and all ground visits are through a single port of entry. This would be fine if the universe were a kind and respectful place. Word of Blake intellegence agents began suppling pirates with route maps through uninhabited space to Dante around 3062. The planet quickly fell to the outlaw forces and has become a home for raiders into the Outworlds Alliance, Federated Suns, and the Draconis Combine. Because of the Omniss following no HPG was set up in system and this has allowed Word of Blake, through it's pirate cutouts, to take over a world inside of the Outworlds Alliance.
