UNSF Communications Command

This command's existence is predicated upon the fact that only ships can pass gates. Shuttles disintigrate and light just misses the gate entirely! It is also predicated that light can only pass in straight lines and cannot pass through stars.

Communications Command is charged with ensuring that the systems of the UN's territory are able to communicate with one another. Typical deployments include: -

  • Systems Relay Group with communications bouys only. Usually at lagrange points of a planet.
  • Bouy Layer Group
  • Gate Communications Group with buoys (sometimes ships) and one or more gate courier(s) to carry messages between these.

The Buoys of the communications group are placed near the gate so as not to make gate location by an interloper simple.
