At Spin Two Swords
Expanded Tech Levels
Tech level as it is currently considered is geared towards space travel rather than the other technological possibilities that do not, necessarily, go hand in hand with space travel. This has to do with the prejudices of the Third Imperium. They consider a race’s technological prowess as it relates to their possibility of becoming a trading factor in the Imperium and, while nobody may admit to such a thing, a threat to the Third Imperium’s power. A race that cannot build a starship is no match for the Imperial Navy.
