Trenton Outpost is the headquarters of Universal Shipping, one of the "Big Three" family of Liberty companies that also includes Ageira Technologies and Deep Space Engineering. Universal Shipping made its fortune by gambling on shipping silver from Colorado to California for use in terraforming Los Angeles, long before Jump Gates and Trade Lanes reduced the risk of transporting goods over such long distances. Universal then cemented its reputation as the premiere Liberty shipping company in 181 A.S. by signing a contract to handle all shipping between Ageira Technologies facilities and Deep Space Engineering construction sites, a contract they old to this date.
It is often rumoured that Universal Shipping has made several clandestine deals with the Xenos, Universal Shipping convoys are often ignored by them. This is strenuously denied by the Universal's Executive Board, but nevertheless the rumours continue to persist.
