** It's never said what exactly Baslim did that left the Traders so deeply in his debt. It's apparently something so shameful that no one wishes to discuss it. Hints throughout the book seem to indicate that a Trader ship was involved in the slave trade, and Baslim exposed them/brought them to justice.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: Just a single example — computerized aiming systems widespread in that universe are apparently unable to plot and predict the target's behavior, and are only good for generating a firing solution ''here and now'', requiring the presence of a skilled operator who can subconsciously "feel" the target. This largely corresponds to how the naval radar-guided gunnery worked during WWII[[note]]Even if the WWII analogue radar directors ''already'' could follow the target, despite being primitive to the point of sometimes being ''mechanical'' -- as in, made of rods, cams and gears, not even relays[[/note]], and was already obsolete by the time the novel was published: in 1958 SAGE, the first computerized air defense system capable of automatically plotting and tracking the targets across the whole US, was starting to get online. Heinlein really didn't get computers at all.
