Travellers' Aid Society

The Travellers’ Aid Society (TAS) is a private organization that maintains hostels across settled space for its members and their guests. TAS also provides its members with assistance in making connections and finding work. TAS was originally founded during the expansion of the Federation, but has since established itself outside its borders and among its successor states.

TAS maintains a very exclusive membership, counting among them naval officers, politicians, and businessmen. For that reason, TAS was banned in the Empire of Nagoya under the provisions of the Unlawful Societies Decree until the reign of Emperor Fernando II Kashikoi. Though now legal, there is still much official suspicion of TAS within the Empire.
