Enlarge: Other, and more adventurous careers:  the Space Patrol!

One cannot go far in the city without seeing the recruiting posters for the Space Patrol and their motto, "Preserving Peace Between the Planets". In fact the Patrol is in a constant recruiting drive as it maintains civilized discourse within the Solar System.

A career in the Space Patrol is an exciting one, to be sure! But no one can describe that better than they do themselves:

If it were a thankless job it would still need doing - but happily, the Space Patrol is almost universally admired, and there are benefits - edible food! Spartan accommodations! Your own ray gun! Affable second lieutenants!

By signing on, you will enter into a new career of interplanetary adventure: you may meet, and blast into small quivering bits, the Awful Green Things From Space! Pursue Space Pirates! Endure a station rotation in corners of the galaxy where nothing has ever happened and where, almost certainly, nothing ever will!

Patrolees are equipped with modern and hygienic protective gear, including lightly used spacesuits and air tanks. Students should note that college plans are also available.

Recruiting centers are open around the clock in many places throughout the cit
