  1. Terra is Latin for Earth. It is common in science fiction to use the term "terrans" to replace "earthlings". This is not limited to the Starcraft universe and is found in many science fiction books.

  2. And a lot of Terran more than likely never see the Earth in their lifetime. They are the descendant of the Earth people.
    In science fiction, there is a term "terra forming", i.e. convert the current planet ecosystem so it's inhabitable like the Earth.
