Interstellar Recovery and Rescue
Fast, Faster, Fastest
Interstellar Communication is not as easy as it sounds. Although it is easier to travel from planet to planet due to the Hyperdrive, tranmition of messages, audio, visual, or data, still are locked down at Light Speed. Even with an extensive network of Deep Space Beacons recieving messages and filtering them to nearby authorities, it still takes a network of carrier ships to get messages to places.
Distress beacons are small propelled rockets with Nuclear Reactors, designed to broadcast distress signals in all known forms of communications across many different communication frequencies.
