Humans originated on the planet Earth. The Talosians scanned the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701's computer in 2254 (FASA Timeline: 2196), and gleaned quite a bit of information about Human history. According to the Talosians, "The customs and history of [Humans] show[s] a unique hatred of captivity. Even when it’s pleasant and benevolent, [they] prefer death. This makes [them] too violent and dangerous a species for our needs."
