A smuggler, also known by the euphemism free trader, was someone who engaged in the clandestine shipment of goods or people to prevent taxation or some other impediment. The goods shipped were often highly illegal or banned in some sectors. Weapon smugglers were referred to as gun runners.
Whenever governments restricted certain goods on their worlds, demand for these items increased. Once demand turns profitable, enterprising starship captains risked everything to deliver the goods in question.
Most careers in smuggling were fast-paced, thrilling and often short-lived. Running contraband not only placed a smuggler at odds with a planet's law enforcement, but its criminal elements as well. Pirates
, gangsters, revolutionaries and bounty hunters
Bounty Hunter
were just a few of the hazards standing between a smuggler and that big payday. Only those who possessed the sharpest instincts, sturdiest freighters and quickest blasters lived long enough to earn a good living at this game.
Not all smugglers were profiteers. Some styled themselves as heroic blockade runners or patriotic privateers, delivering hope and much-needed supplies to those who needed it. And that was also exactly how the real criminal types described themselves, and law enforcement officers rarely accepted "I was serving a noble cause" as an excuse.
