The Taming of the Hunters was an event in the Hunter's history. Before the Hunter race was civilized, the Hunter's were barbaric and were cannibalistic. A race of weakling aliens known as Prophets came along and tamed the Hunters as their pets. The Hunters rebelled against the Prophets and overthrew them. Somehow obtaining nuclear weapons, the Hunter nuked the Prophets homeworld until it was uninhabitable, as well as the entire race into extinction. After this, the Hunter's became very civilized and set up a global government of Te, also known as the Honorable Hunter Government, thereby ending the Taming period.
