=== FAQ: ===

Question: "Can I be a civilian?"
Answer: Absolutely, you can! Civilians are even given free Light-freighter (or lower) ship's upon entering IC, if they so desire one.

How do you do it? Well, you have to be on the game and you have to be a stellar source of RP Creation and helping make the game IC / OOC a better place to be.
Question: "Why should I make a character?"
Answer: "Because the sooner you make a character the quicker the game gets even healthier. And the faster you start earning Experience Points to build your character's skills up and earn more toward making the character YOU want.
