Family Ships

There have always been ships on which families lived their lives. Generation after generation occupied the same ship or group of ships. Some scholars claim that family ships go back to the ships that travelled between the stars before Mulligan drives made jumps possible.

Some families specialise. They may be entertainers, for example travelling players or a circus. They may be salvage specialists or asteroid miners. They may have a good reputation going back centuries and therefore be considered the safest carriers if you are considering a journey in a stasis pod.
