Outworlders must not violate the quarantine
In the early years of Quillithian history, they endured several outbreaks of disease and plagues. These experiences ingrained in the culture a deep fear and revulsion for germs and a concern for the purity of their genetic code. Production of offspring is regulated and technology is used to eliminate defects and improve the survivability of the species.
As signals of visiting slipstream ships from Cascade and Medusa began to explore their cluster, they realized the potential for disaster from alien contamination. Without technology to close access to their system, they realized that they needed to control their exposure and study the aliens biology. A planetary-wide quarantine was instituted for all off-world visitors. The droids of Paxcess were ruled safe (if not exactly popular), the people of Ascendant Prime are seen as distasteful with their proclivity for spilling bodily fluids, and the reported descriptions of Meduseans fill them with horror. There are rumors of government scientists abducting aliens for biological study but inquiries are dismissed: “All offworlders are strictly tracked and accounted”.
