Tukera Lines is a major interstellar transport company with service to virtually every important world in the Imperium. The keyword is “important:” Tukera ignores the backwater worlds and their low profit routes.

Description (Portfolio)[edit]

Tukera Lines is one of the thirteen Imperial MegaCorporations in operation in 1116.

Commercial Competencies[edit]

  • Interstellar Shipping & Trade
    • Freight
    • Passengers
  • Speculation

Tukera Lines operates a vast fleet of passenger and freight vessels throughout the Imperium, following the X-Boat lines.

In some subsectors (particularly the older, more established regions of the Imperium) Tukera Lines has a virtual monopoly on long-distance shipping and travel.

Governance & Organization[edit]

Tukera's head is Count Blaine Trulla Tukera and his two brothers. Duchess Margaret who is married to Count Tukera, is also close to the Imperial Throne.

Tukera's intelligence services, the Vemene, are feared for their ruthlessness by both citizens and the corporation's employees.

Tukera family — 29%
Imperial family — 3%

Subsidiaries[edit]

Tukera has a habit of setting up subsector-sized subsidiaries to provide feeder service.
