History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Almost all of the sector's Human citizens are pure Solomani.

  • Aldebaran also has a significant population of primitive indigenous aliens, though not all of these have successfully assimilated into Confederation society.
  • During the Rim War a Minor Race native to Aldebaran, the Neozinga, resisted Confederation offers to be relocated; their attacks on Solomani colonials led to their extinction.

Historical Eras[edit]

General Overview: No information yet available.

History-Era: Mileu 1100[edit]

At least four Terran settlements were established in Aldebaran by -2204, all far outside the borders of the Terran Confederation. Two were located in subsector J, while the other two were located in subsector K. Despite these early colonies, only the Coreward subsectors of Aldebaran were heavily populated prior to the Rim War.

  • Following the fall of Terra (Solomani Rim 1827), the capital of the entire Confederation was relocated to Home (Aldebaran 1009). And once Home became the capital, development of the entire sector became a prime engine of new economic growth. The worlds around Home benefit from their proximity to the Confederation’s new center of power, while settlement of the undeveloped rimward subsectors has accelerated.
  • Confederation policies encourage rimward settlement through liberal grants of territory on unsettled worlds, creating a wide-open colonial frontier. Rival Solomani Party factions, corporations, and planetary coalitions are competing in a ‘land rush’ to claim, colonize, and tame new worlds.
  • Aldebaran is not adjacent any hostile powers, freeing the sector of the military border conflicts that have troubled other areas.

As the leadership of the Confederation Navy are reluctant to commit main fleet assets to police a region that is not threatened by external enemies, the rimward area remains a wild frontier.
