The High Catherine was an interplanetary passenger liner in the Epsilon Eridani system during the 25th century.

It was a medium-capacity liner, with a capacity of 6,000 passengers. Among other locations, it services the carousels and other habitats of the Glitter Band.

Description Edit

"As for those still awaiting transport, our current estimate predicts complete evacuation within four hours, twenty minutes, assuming we can get the liners in and out without incident." "There's a liner docked now?" Dreyfus asked.
"Not a high-capacity vehicle. The biggest ship we have on-station is the medium-capacity liner High Catherine. She can carry six thousand at a time, but she takes a long time to load. The larger ship we've been using, the Bellatrix, can take ten thousand, but we're also using her to offload people from the Persistent Vegetative State."

- excerpt from a conversation between Baudry and Dreyfus, chapter 25 of Aurora Rising [1]
