Contacts are the gravs who you will meet and work with across the hundreds of worlds of the Quadrants. Contacts are notable, influential or offer services that your Star Trader Captain will need or seek out, as seen below. Contacts have their own Contact Traits which impact their behavior and pursue their own personal goals through Missions and Conflicts.

Your Captain has a Personal Reputation score with each Contact. If you harm or help the Contact, this score will increase or decrease. Your Personal Reputation score is combined with your Faction Reputation score to derive an Effective Reputation score. Depending on their Traits and personality, Contacts will care more or less about your Personal or Faction Reputation. Your Effective Reputation is used to determine what level of services you are able to access when you visit a Contact -- basically, what they are willing to offer you in return for credits.

If you are interested in how to meet contacts, please view the page on how to get contacts.[]
