Default The Authority, Human Space, & beyond

First, some Library Data:

• The Authority
Short form of
Federated Interstellar Commerce and Transit Authority

The Authority operates star-ports and merchant banks across Human Space. A tangle of treaties, concessions, and inter-world compacts resolve to a practical division of power: Authority governs the space between worlds while the worlds in its network rule themselves.

Authority credits—scrip redeemable at company stores in the all the star port— enjoy favorable rates of exchange with local currency on many worlds.
Need a starship? Put together a convincing business plan, offer sufficient collateral, and Authority bankers might fund construction of your vessel. Do not skip unless you fancy living on the run.

The Authority maintains or subsidizes paramilitary and military forces to protect its assets.
The Authority’s Marines typically carry snub guns and cutlasses, armament meant to minimize property damage during repossessions and port security actions. The cutlasses also produce a desirable moral effect. Nothing says ‘pay your mortgage’ like leaked videos of the aftermath of a boarding action.

• Brotherhood of Spacemen
Once a union for space workers, forced underground by the Authority it has degenerated into an organized crime group that relies on sabotage and intimidation to secure illicit profits.

• Doctor Alina Volkova
Historical person 21st-early 22nd Century
Lomonosov State University Moscow
Lead developer of the first jump drive.
Starship crewmen place her image in their joss boxes for good fortune and safe jumps.
