On this page is non-exhaustive list of numerous monetary data (wages, costs of goods etc) from FE2 and FFE fan fiction and official game data. All of the data is from the period 3200 (when Elite:Frontier beings) to ~3310 (when the 'HPA Saga' fan fiction series is set).
Mentions of wages/salaries are hard to come by in the FFE world, both in the fan fiction and official data.
|Job||Income per Day||Income per Week||Income per Year|
|Spacecraft Crew [low]||0.71||5||260|
|Spacecraft Crew [avg]||1.43||10||520|
|Spacecraft Crew [high]||2.14||15||780|
|Spacecraft Crew [v high]||2.86||20||1040|
|Cargo Handler (1)||0.89||6.25||325|
|Federal Military Sergeant (2)||5.78||40.46||2,103.87|
|Space Adventurer (3)||76.16||533.14||27,723.50|
Notes: (1) On the Cargo Handlers salary: 'Twenty-five credits [per month] was quite a high wage to be paying a member of your crew, let alone a cargo handler!' From Pritchard on the Frontier, Chapter 16. Source: http://www.alioth.net/~mufossa/stories/pritchard/story16.html
(2) On the Federal Military Sergeants salary: "The calculation is quite simple: the price of a Cobra MkIII against the cost of paying you a Sergeants salary for fifty years and a pension for twenty more. The Cobra was cheaper." Source: http://blackspace.alioth.net/index.html ['Unlikely Coincidences']
The cost of a Cobra Mk 3, with a 1MW/P laser, autopilot, and Navicom and no other additional components is 126,232 Cr. If we assume that the annual pension is half the value of the annual salary, then we can divide the value of the Cobra 3 by 60 (50 years of normal salary and 20 years of half salary - for the pension).
126,232 / 60 = 2,103.87
Thus the Sergeants salary per year is roughly 2,103.87 Cr.
(3) On the Space Adventurers salary: The figure is taken from 'Winston and Gilmour's Guide to the Edge' which lasted from July 3263 to July 3264. During this time James Winston earned 27,723.5 Cr net income from bounties (282 successful kills) and salvaged cargo.
Price of Various Goods and Services
A list of goods and services from the FE2 and FFE world with their corresponding price/value in credits. The prices of space-ships (e.g. the Eagle 2) and ship component (e.g. a 1MW Beam Laser) have been ommited because they are well documented on Frontier/Elite fan-sites.
