Supplemental – Ship Terms & Navigation In Space

We’ve been mentioning shippers since the beginning. But, with this supplemental, we’ll be explaining some of the terms they use. Also, we’ll explain how people navigate in deep space. These things will be important for future episodes when we get deep into how the former colonies and Earth wage war against one another.
