Overview

Fast and efficient, the Coral liners supply a reliable transport service to those that can afford a slightly more expensive ticket than what offered by Anaconda SpaceWays, but with the benefit of considerably more comfort to the traveller. With regular schedules connecting medium to rich systems, a fleet of ships with a maximum capacity of 450 passengers, and the relatively healthy profit of this spaceline, it is puzzling that its leadership seem to give escort security such a low priority, something Coral StarLiner frequently gets criticized for.

Company

Self-made man Rizzi Brazen gleams with pride every time he makes a personal appearance on the comms or ads to announce a new destination added to the Coral StarLiner repertoire, or a new luxury feature made available to its customers. That a large part of the public considers his thirst for constant exposure and need to project himself as a fun, magnetic persona, quite ridiculous, he seems oblivious to, but this image has never caused the company's economy to suffer. Indeed many StarLiner customers certainly appreciate that a similar enthusiasm and eagerness to please is instilled into his employees.

Shortcomings

The usual assault

As has often been pointed out however, travelling with the Coral StarLiners isn't without risk. Why Brazen stubbornly refuses to admit that a policy of taking only 2 Sidewinder escorts does not offer sufficient protection for the current level of crime found in space, seems to be a matter of pride, and whenever this criticism is raised, he will mutter the same unsatisfying reply about the Coral being "a very fast ship with excellent shields, ..our liners and escorts ..the finest pilots.." This will inevitably ruin his great mood, cause him to promptly excuse himself, and exit the limelight, cheeks flushed. Faithful customers live in the hope that Brazen will eventually reconsider his position on this.
