Thanks to the theory of Relationality / Ismini’s Laws / we control the gravitational force between two objects. The Midas Device on a ship gives it the ability to fare throughout the Solar System and gives it population a constant 1G of gravity, also while accelerating. On a space station this device is use to create a pleasing 1G and if needed can be used to move it slowly.
Its intrinsic relation with the Sun makes that we can not use a midas device to journey out of the Oort Cloud.
Although the device does not need a lot of energy to work the need in computational power is considerable. For this reason the Fastlane Network is being built. Flights from and to bodies larger than Luna need so much processing power that those journeys are heavily controlled and limited. Giving to the Union the perfect excuse to control Earth’s ins and outs.
