Ed Horstmann

Deep range cartography is hardly a prime assignment for a talented Navigator. Talented Navigators run courier missions, recon missions, combat operations and warships. The more talented individuals can write their own ticket and have their pick of assignments – and perks, within reason. The truly gifted Navigators spend more time in the docking queue than they do in space. Ed isn’t at the top of that list. He’s nowhere near it, in fact. Capable of a 0.5 submersion with booster drugs, Ed meets the famously lenient minimum depth requirement for ICG Navigators. He occasionally puts his bare minimum talent to bare minimum use, flipping off General Relativity and hauling the ship into Am whenever the job requires it. Which is just often enough to keep him in the second-lowest bonus bracket for flight pay.
