STFU vessels amoung the freighters docking at High Port, Botany Bay. Winter 2511

OverviewEdit

The Serenity Trade & Freight Union (STFU) are independent freighter captains and spacefaring merchants working together for free trade in all parts of the galaxy. Think of them as "space teamsters." It's a collective bargaining group with shared resources. The cornerstone of our group is the little guy, the independent or even solo cargo hauler. This allows small independents to make a better living as traders.

Ports of call include Al Raqis, Deshima, Hoto Nagi, Starbase Alpha, Redox, Botany Bay, Paquin, Washtown, Colchester, Dragon's Egg, Pinastri, and other core worlds.

STFU has been active in the trade routes for several years. Recently the company has seen hard times, having closed their trading facility on Mu Draconis (Al Raqis). Once a common sight on the trade lanes, STFU vessels are now a rarity in many busy ports.

HistoryEdit

Formed when the Core Free Trade Alliiance (CFTA) and Serenity Trading announced a full merger of the two competing trade organizations to form one corporate entity in November of 2511. From the remains of both organizations rises the Serenity Trade & Freight Union (STFU). New offices will be located in Al Raqis. A 'duty free' private landing area for STFU pilots will remain on the surface as well as a strong presence on the orbiting Highport Station.

With the lifting of the blockade and trade restrictions from the Mu Draconis system, plus the silent role that independent traders had in getting the cure to the 'Black Pox" SAF Virus to the 34 Tauri system and other outlying worlds, the new company looked forward to a profitable future.

The Serenity Trade & Freight Union (STFU) is an alliance of independent freighter captains and spacefaring merchants working together for free trade in all parts of the galaxy. "Free" trade is a misnomer, as they do seek to make a profit. Think "free speech" and not "free beer."

The primary role of the STFU is that of a collective bargaining group and shared resources. The STFU allows small independents to make a better living as traders.
