The Imperium would build the Imperial starport (both ground and orbital) for a system. A planet with a large population, decent tech base and large amounts of shipping would have multiple orbital facilities as well as ground ports. And there would be additional ones spread throughout a system to support colonies and other remote facilities.Condottiere wrote: ↑Tue Oct 10, 2017 2:26 pmAnyone can build a spaceport, presumably, in the Imperium.
Starports are administered by the Imperium itself, and probably with a little bit of arm twisting, aren't limited to a single dirtside facility and one orbital satellite.
Though I wonder if that authority is systemwide, or only per planet.
It's actually an interesting question. I've not seen much literature that talks about orbital facilities and what to expect.
