Trilon and Associates
Trilon has always been in the forefront of both ship design and corporate exploration around the Sol-Beta Canum Venaticorum trade route. After their initial survey and colonization of Xi Ursae Majoris (2250), and their ability to make the planet nearly Trilon exclusive, efforts have been redoubled to be the first on the scene of all potentially habitable worlds within their sphere of influence.
Trilon recently acqulrcrd plans lor a stuttenuarp tug vessel. This shlp 1s designed to project Its stutterwarp field around a ship it tows, allowing the second ship’s engines to remain offline. The tug travels out to 3.85 light-years, half the 7.7 light-year distance, then releases the towed ship and returns to its starting point to discharge. The towed ship then brings Its own engines online and travels up to another 7.7 light-years, a total of 1 t .55 light-years distance in all. This technology could expand the number of stars that can Ix reached to nearly three times fhe current number.
