Even in a society as regimented and socially focused as the Commonwealth, there will always exist persons that, for a bewildering variety of reasons, find themselves in conflict or friction with the norms of their communities. Many of these persons will often depart their home communities or worlds to search the space ways for their calling, wandering the spaceways as drifters or transients. Though the Commonwealth supports (or at least does not hinder) such individuals, it does not tolerate social parasitism, meaning that these persons have to find gainful temporary employment or be subject to local vagrancy laws. A Nomad is akin to the Aslan Wanderer in that he or she is not necessarily an outcast, but is simply not comfortable with domesticated society. Most work odd jobs or in seasonal employment, and spending the rest of the time travelling between communities or prospects. Nomads usually wander for only a few years before settling down to a long term career; many find employment by police and scouting agencies due to their extensive navigational experience in swimming through the underworld, or alien cultures.

When the Commonwealth Covenant was ratified in NE 43, the worlds and citizens of the new nation received a legally codified level of freedom unprecedented in the annals of the Old Imperium. But with this freedom came new dangers and complications, and the problem of a rising number of crimes committed by both individual citizens and planetary governments keen to exploit the j-space communication lag between them and their fellows. Already anticipating this shift, the new government created the Praetor Service to establish basic legal standards for local planetary legal systems and a uniform level of standards for legal judgments, while establishing a Commonwealth circuit court system that oversaw crimes that affected the greater interstellar community above the planetary level. The Praetors are mainly travelling judges and jurists, their staffs, and a supporting infrastructure of personnel that includes custom built starships and contract crews.
