an established route through space
No longer would fliers of the space lanes fear them. But there were other outlaws.
It is believed Tarana arrived secretly on Lirius on a space ship, travelling out of patrolled space-lanes.
We're way off the regular space lanes. The first the System will know of us will be the landing of the Transparent on Ganymede.
Maybe there has been a rebellion in this sector. The winner may be systematically mopping up all Patrol bases. That would leave him free to rule the space lanes as he pleases.
There was nothing desirable about Starbase 86. It was far removed from the more frequently traveled space lanes.
One more ship must have been dispatched hours behind its companions, on its way from New Earth to my planet. Since Starbiter was headed for New Earth now, we must be traveling in the same space lane.
