The intergalactic super Highway is the only known form of interstellar travel in the milky way. It is a narrow corridor of space that is clear of any obstructions, it allows ships with large enough Pell Reactors to travel at faster then light speeds. The Super Highway was founded by the Sin’Tan around the the early 1000’s earth time. They were the only species to use it until it was found by the Riccop. A side effect of the Highway is the loud ’’noise’’ created allows it to be detected by any space-age race nearby. Many of these new races would seek out the Highway, only to fly right into the middle as cause large crashes. The electorate has created a task force, to discover and watch and new race, to prevent such a tragedy from happening again.
