How far can Whitestar project its influence? For all the posturing in the book it seems to me that whitestar is just a bunch of bunker-dwelling has beens protected by an old ICBM system. Since the Fall AIs cannot be relied upon, so I would hazard a guess the Dead Hand works only on earth plus maybe against Luna. Hitting another planet would be beyond its capability. And even ignoring this, what reason would Whitestar have to send people farther than Luna? What corporation would allow them to? Even the Brotherhood would be reluctant to protect Whitestar personnel nosing around on planets belonging to the corporations.
