Thruster Boarding is a sport enjoyed in the Terran Dominion. It involves using an ion thruster powered board to peak a large wave, similar to surfing on old Earth. It was a hobby that made Miranar famous, as its 30 to 60 meter waves were some of the largest in the sector. This lead to the formation of thruster boarding clubs such as the Screaming Sixes, and the continue hospitalization of many who did not have the skill to ride these waves.
Several products are sold on the market that help with thruster boarding, such as Mr. Snorggs's Thruster Wax.
