History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The wealthy have always desired luxuries and comforts not possessed by the have-nots of Charted Space. Interstellar travel would not change this basic psychological impulse.

For most sophont species early spaceflight was limited to governments and the extremely wealthy. As the frontier of space grows more accessible with increasing mastery of technology, the wealthy naturally carve off special parts of it for themselves. High Passage interstellar travel entails far more comfort, entertainment, and vastly better food than steerage or Low Passage and has for millennia.
