Ferry is run by the ManuFactors Associative, a collection of companies that dominated the planet in the pre-Rebellion era. Ferry is a major source of high-tech goods for the surrounding area, as well as the key transport node connecting Shadigi subsector to Narquel subsector. It is also a major producer of TL 12-14 military craft, particularly grav vehicles and fighters-two staples of the booming mercenary trade.

Many of the starships that move through Ferry are 600 tons displacement and greater, and most of them are jump 2 capable. These factors attract a wealthier clientele than is customarily observed in most of the high-volume, B-class ports throughout Diaspora. As a result, Ferry’s goods tend to remain in the hands of merchants and customers who are already powerful and rich. Few high-tech cargoes trickle down to the small, tech-starved worlds nearby.
