Page 57: barbarian royalty from primitive worlds (Flandry's Terran Empire? More diplomatic skulduggery on pages 72, 75, 76...)

An awful lot of Traveller material could fit into such a setting, with much else portable from other games, since it's almost literally an exemplar of space opera.

Equipment for most scenes might in some ways resemble a secret agent game, being mostly what would be appropriate to combine with formal wear: discreet armour (the hardmesh uniform) and environmental protection, communicators, small toolkits (lockpicks and computer jacks), pistols, ceremonial blades like sabres and epees, businesslike daggers.

Starting, perhaps, with "Behind Blue Eyes" in Challenge #48, 50 and #51.

And Valerian, of course. Recently the New Future is more about time-hopping, also foreshadowed.

Could be helpful, could be trouble, like many things in the lives of protagonists of the genre:

Intergalactic Playboys

You didn’t know she was the runaway daughter of a Kaldakian ambassador...
