Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
XT Line

Extraterritoriality (shortened to extrality or just XT) is the concept of a piece of ground within a sovereign state being legally the teritory of another, distant state.

A national embassy and its grounds are the best-known example or a starport administered under a foreign juridiction.

The XT Line is the border around such a property.

On an Imperial or friendly world, a simple fence may indicate the line. On worlds actively hostile to the Imperium, the line may be a heavily patrolled fortress wall.
