History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Gorram is interdicted to allow study of its primitive inhabitants. The University of Mora Byret Cultural Anthropology Department has a long standing research program and often sends survey ships to research various aspects of the Gorramite society. The Gorramites are in the beginning of the age of sail. The experimental development of sails to utilize wind power on both the vast lands and the oceans for moving transport. The sails vary in design and are complicated contraptions to cover a massive area to capture the power of the wind in the thin atmosphere of Gorram.

Due to the elliptical orbit of the Gas Giant the Imperium as restricted refueling at Waseid during the "Visible Cycle" to prevent the local inhabitants to seeing possible ships in the night sky. This is enforced by routine patrols of units from the 187th Light Escort Squadron.
