Beyond the Black
Station Type: Bernal sphere
Allegiance: Independent (Sapient Uplift)
Primary Languages: Javanese, Tamil, Spanish
Respect was founded by uplifts in the sapient faction and their human allies. Unlike mercurial habitats, which are meant primarily for uplifts alone, this colony is specifically intended for humans and uplifts to live together. Most of the residents stem from the inner system, where they became fed up with the second-class status most uplifts were given. Unlike many other Trojan stations, Respect still operates with a transitional economy. As a result, several upliftfriendly hypercorps use it as a base for their Trojan operations. It is governed by an elected parliament,
who in turn elect a mayor. The current mayor is Jean Priz, a neo-neanderthal chemist.
