 Since owning a starship is too expensive for the general, travel is usually through long-range shuttle service or the more comfortable cruise liners. Unlike the Teskan-class transports and others, these liners provide a gravity positive environment for its passengers. Typical procedure is to rotate the passenger section to simulate the gravity of the embarkation point and then slow or sped up rotation to match the destination's gravity during the course of the voyage.

 Crews are mostly civilian, though many companies prefer those with Earthforce experience (retired or discharged) to command their ships.
