A WORD ABOUT THE NEW RACES
The Osakar, Ifshnits, and Humma have inhabited the Rim System worlds for centuries. They were incorporated into Frontier society during the Second Sathar War (SWII) when their help was desperately needed.
While they are legally entitled to all the rights and privileges of UPF members, anti-Rim prejudice is common on worlds that are several jumps away from the Sathar border. Inhabitants of these protected worlds view the Rim as a collection of "Znoggy Come Latelies" (a PanGal term for anyone who arrives after the rough work is done, supposedly inspired by Captain Znogg whose forgotten warship never fired a shot and was never hit by one). This prejudice is never found on those planets that were directly involved in the Second Sathar War.
The fourth race, the Mechanons is included because its presence on the Frontier has had increasing impact in the last few decades. The Mechanons should be used only as non-player characters, like the Sathar. They are not, however, an evil race. It just so happens that most Mechanon interests conflict with the interests of the Frontier and the UPF.
