In a hypothetical futuristic society that blends arcane magic with science, humanity has spread across the galaxy. FTL drives exist, but they are relatively slow and must exit at the outer edge of a gravity well and crawl towards their destination. Interstellar travel is slow, and trade takes place in times measured in months and years.
But there is another option. Several researchers, infamous for their less than savoury practices, have discovered that an extra planar race is capable of transporting a human ship instantly from one place to another. The problem however, is that for all of human history these extra-planar entities have been regarded (with good reason, for the most part) as devils. The ritual to summon one of these entities involves acts of blood sacrifice and dark rituals and the public is overwhelmingly against it, but the promise of instantaneous interstellar travel is alluring to governments and corporations both.
Would people in this universe make common use of this technosorcery? Or would public opinion and the effective cost (a deal with the devil, as it were) restrict it to only the most pragmatic.
