There are as yet many social fractures on the political landscape of the Rutian homeworld. Social divisions are rife, and many urban areas are blighted by unrest, and in some cases violent factions who oppose the govern-ment. But they have a burgeoning technological research infrastructure, and many great minds. Their folded-space transit theory is a remarkable innovation, yet hazardous. On the verge of warp capability they remain a promising civilization, but for their domestic troubles.
Rutia's answer to research and experimentation is advanced simulated models of trans-space: the inter-dimensional bonds that link layers of subspace. As they approach mastery over the behavioural patterns of these linkages, many new insights into subspace physics are predicted.
