It is by these principles that “Minuteman Starlines” is capable of supplying our customers with a feasible, well received, and well tested service for interstellar travel. We facilitate these key points in the following ways:

Guiding Principles

Affordable: We ensure the most affordable prices in a couple ways, first and foremost we separate our flights into two categories: Standard and Luxury, which we use to give us a basis for our charge. Then we utilize the system that we have nicknamed “P.I.G.S”: Penetrating Incremental Geographical System, in layman’s terms we offer you the most affordable price with negligible fees based on your current to final destination. In this way we leave our customers in charge of how far they wish to go by how far they wish to pay.

Comfortable: Aboard our ships we offer every modern amenity that you find anywhere or any place, from affordable drinks, comfortable lounging to even guaranteed safety. With “Minuteman Starlines” every flight is like riding on the clouds, comfortable and serene.

Expedient: Just like the Minuteman of old we respond even at a minute’s notice, which means that your flight should not take any longer than it needs to be. We take great care at departing and arriving from and to any destination at the prescribed times, because we know your time is precious to you and to us.

Secure: We take the utmost caution and spare no expense when it comes to our security, that is why every flight is check and sured by a security team, along with fighter support. Even though your time is precious, your lives are priceless and so is your safety, so rest assured our Security Division shall keep you safe, always.

Discount Program

Here at “Minuteman Starlines” we offer the fairest and most affordable prices, however, we also understand that good people deserve a good turn and that is why we offer our Discount Program. Our program applies to all of our employees, our affiliated organizations, and the organizations that we sponsor, and they are:

Manifesto

Greetings Sir or Ma’am,

Introduction

Let me first welcome you to our organization, “Minuteman Starlines” aspires to be the quintessential everyday consumers interstellar starliner, and to this end we’ve instituted a rather robust charter. Having said this, I should stress that this organization though we do not discourage it, is in no form a role-playing [rp] corporation; I’ll repeat we are NOT ROLEPLAY. However, what we do have is a highly detailed charter that lists everything you’ll need to know about our organization, from our rules to procedures, from promotions and hierarchical structure. While we have some policies that may be construed as rp, they are existent for the sole purpose to facilitate efficiency, and to create a means of enjoyment, fun, and success for our “employees”.

However, if you are the sort who enjoys activities such as rp, you are free to do so, and no member of our organization will stop you from doing so, without good cause. Having clarified our stance upon these activities, I shall endeavor to explain more about who we are, what we do, and how we plan on achieving these feats.

Who We Are, and What We Do

“Minuteman Starlines” as an entity, exists publicly to supply the verse with reliable, secure, and affordable means of transportation from UEE territories all the way to Banu space, and more. Though we do possess a well regulated, standardized, and capable security division, this division exists to only facilitate in the procurement and protection of our assets, of which all of our customers are. We are not a Paramilitary Company {PMC} nor are we a Pirate gang, we are as always humble and skilled pilots looking to make the verse safer and travel far more reliable for our common man.

Path to Achievement

It is our goal, to spread amongst the stars and to bring people to those points of enjoyment, fun, enrichment, and settlement. To do this we utilize only the most reliable, expedient, and secure vessels to get from our points of origin, to our points of rest. With a fleet of Starliner Genesis’ created by “Crusader Industries”, and an armada of well trained, equipped, and reliable security personnel we will get there.

Closing

In closing I, Alymere, CEO/President of “Minuteman Starlines” would like to thank you for your interest in our organization and most humble starliner. Whether we see you as an employee or a customer in the future, may I just say goodluck, and godspeed to the stars.
