That's not what I said at all.

What I said was that Travellers are a special class of people. They're the people that travel among the stars.

Most people in the 3I do not travel often or very far. They're not "Travellers". They stay on their homeworlds and/or in their home systems, for the most part.

Travelling is expensive. It costs 8,000-10,000 Credits a jump (not a journey), and when you travel, typically, the conditions are cramped. I've said before, travelling in Traveller is akin to spending $8,000 for a room on a shrimp boat for a single leg of a journey.

Compounding this is homeworld tech level and planetary conditions.

Travellers are a small part of the population.
