Members of Post Diaspora era space navies unofficially separated people into hyper-dogs and dirt-grubbers.

A "hyper-dog" was anyone who had been in a hyper-capable starship that had crossed from hyperspace through the alpha wall back into n-space, the equivalent of crossing the planetary equator in ocean-going navies back on Earth.[1] All other people, who had never crossed the hyperwall, were referred to as "dirt-grubbers". (HHA4.6: TSotS)


  1. They were referred to as Shellbacks and Pollywogs respectively.
