When working up the details of T20, might I suggest you be very careful with how Low Berths are described. In CT if you had a competent Doctor in attendance, then the risk of death from Low Berth travel was eliminated. But, in T4, no matter how good the doctor or medical facilities, there was still a fairly significanr chance of death from Low travel.

If 5% of all Low passengers die, no matter what, that's going to really, really make it undesireable. Competent doctors can mitigate this, then Low Berths are useful. I'm especially thinking of Large-scale troop transport and colonization missions.

For example, Mercenaries won't stand for 5% attrition each trip, and the expense of transporting them awake is prohibitive (the life support costs alone at 2000cr per month).
