History & Background (Dossier)
Era: New Era
Non-canon: The only system in this Concord Subsector which retained interstellar capability through the Collapse is Charuth (B7869A7-9), which still operates a number of pre-Collapse starships. Construction began recently on new TL–A starship designs utilizing jump drive components from old, no longer functional vessels. Scientists and engineers are also working to make new jump drive components, and are less than a year away (provided their supply of lanthanum is not interrupted, see below) from having this capability once again.
Explorers from Charuth have ventured out to a number of local systems since the Collapse. Though a few vampire ships and free traders have been encountered, so far no other civilization capable of producing starships has been found. Many intellectuals on Charuth have begun to theorize that no other such civilization will be found, as the Collapse has apparently destroyed all others. This has caused the Charuth government to assume an extremely cautious approach in sending out exploratory vessels, since if Charuth is the last of its kind, all starships resources must be husbanded very carefully until new ones can be constructed in quantity.
