ID cards are issued by most every government, military, or corporation, and they are required for everything from traveling off-world to accessing certain buildings and receiving government assistance. Because of their necessity and importance, counterfeiting them has become a large industry and they have many different uses. Some sentients use them for nefarious purposes, such as getting around blacklists, evading law enforcement, Identity theft, or sneaking into sensitive areas. But they also come in handy when fleeing warzones, slipping through blockades, or otherwise helping endangered persons. Even so, fake ID cards are illegal in most sectors, and having one in your possession is often enough to get you arrested.
