Communications
Concept art -- Law

Space communication is not FTL in NorthStar. Starports, depending on quality, will have trade information for other worlds but the information will be rated by its age.

The system is just not a pell mell group of ships — official data is sent very much like the pony express — which means a specialized network of high speed, single crew message darts and very large tender / broadcast ships in every populated system over a certain size.

So beating your wanted poster to Los Angeles, pretty hard. Beating it to planet Podunk way off the beaten track, a little easier.
