Travel Zones

Standard form of classification for worlds, rated in terms of relative danger.

As a service to spacefarers, the Traveller's Aid Society has established a system of Travel Zone ratings which colour-code areas in the Imperium (and outside the Imperium) to indicate the degree of danger a world presents to the ordinary traveller.

By assumption, the entire Imperium is classed Green (safe) unless stated otherwise. Some areas are coded Amber to indicate caution is necessary; reasons for such ratings include unstable local governments, xenophobic populations, and uncertain or extreme local conditions. The code Red is reserved for dangerous areas; Imperial interdictions, wars, and quarantined worlds are routinely classified as Red Zones.
