Steerage isn't Low Passage in MGT 2.0 and Clement Sector.

Basic Passage: For those not willing to risk low berths, the option of basic passage, or steerage as it is often
called, exists. Staterooms will be shared (typically four people to a stateroom in bunks) or, on some less
scrupulous ships, areas in the cargo bay or engineering will be set aside for very basic accommodation and services (which may only extend to two meals a day
and meagre washroom facilities). This requires 2 tons of spare room on the spacecraft, a resilient personality
on the part of the passenger, and comes with a 10kg baggage allowance.

Yes, I understand that, but what I meant was that, depending on the version you're playing, low passage might be a better option when moving troops (be them mercs or not).

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

I would summarize the CT chartering rule as effectively '90% of the ships' conventional earning potential during charter period'.

Of course the real money is in speculation or 'extralegal' activities, so that has to be factored, by player owners but also by referees who have to figure out what the going rate would be for heading into a dangerous area.

I would also probably add +10% per jump number above one.
