Exports & Imports: The Cronosians are essentially a huge trading network, so most of their income come from trading whatever goods they can get their hands on.
Longrunning Interstellar Disputes: Solar Dominion and Negentropy Alliance disapprove of the indiscriminate sales of ascension packages in their territory.
|Notes on Cronosian habitats:||Eir habitats are immensely flexible, and can be reconfigured for a long range of situations. Interstellar travel, altering shape in order to pass through wormholes, and using several habitats as 'building blocks' in temporary megastructures (usually trade stations) are only three of the possibilities. The habitats can also be quite stealthy, as eir smuggling operations proved during the Version War.|
