Antra, originally designated District 234, was admitted into the Imperium in 520.

Description[edit]

Antra, subsector C of Deneb has 25 worlds, of which 22 have native gas giants. There are no Asteroid (As) belts, two Desert (De) worlds, one Garden (Ga) world, two Ice-capped (Ic) worlds, six Poor (Po) worlds, two Vacuum (Va) worlds, and two Water (Wa) or Ocean (Oc) worlds. There are no native sophonts.

The subsector is divided into three parts. Spinward and Rimward is the Duchy seat, with Antra (Deneb 1808) and Uramid (Deneb 1910) on the Xboat route. Coreward is the Vargr border, where corsairs and patrols skirmish. Finally there is the Gagaridir Trace, a grouping of worlds between two miniature rifts.

Native Sophonts[edit]

The following races (sophont species) are believed to have originated in this area:

Major Historical Events Timeline[edit]

Era: Rebellion[edit]

In the years just before the final solution of the Final War was inadvertently released, the Hard Times that effected Deneb Sector as well as the rest of the Third Imperium, left their mark here. It was not as bad as some of the Black War in the old Imperial mains, however occasionally dastardly efforts were conducted, in this case by Vargr and more infrequently, by the Imperial Navy.

Filangger (2001) had hosted an Imperial resort before Vargr occupation. Secretly, the Imperium had also maintained weapons research outpost nearly equivalent to a research station, but this was purely military. It was fairly safe on the ocean bottom well away from any civilized habitats, but had nevertheless been evacuated when the Vargr came. To assure that the Vargr would gain nothing from the abandoned outpost, it was heavily bombarded by a task force that has forcibly made its way into the system.

An unpredictable outcome of the bombardment was the shifting of a crustal plate which resulted in a subterranean outgassing. The gases caused a lowering of the planet's surface temperature. The seas rose and the former Waterworld became a Glacier world. All things being equal, this mini-Ice age should last another thousand years.

The Vargr on Dzoungdzi (1802) had permitted a large and corrupt Corsair band to stash a munitions dump on their world. The corsairs had not told the people of Dzoungdzi that this dump would also have some chemical weapons as well. Imperial Intelligence had discovered the dump, but had no foreknowledge of the particularly insidious nature of some of the containers. The dump was bombed from orbit and the explosion resulted in a mildly unhealthy chemical taint in the planet's atmosphere.

History: New Era[edit]

The Antra subsector is severely reduced from its antebellum extent; the subsector contains no world in the Regency safe area, and will over have of the subsector's world's lie in the Wilds.

Antra subsector is defended by the 61st Fleet, which was pulled back from its previous station in the Millions Subsector. The 51st Fleet, formerly defending Antra, was sent spinward to cover the new Regency territories in the Sword Worlds Subsector. The 61st is headquartedat Uramid (Deneb 1910), within the Frontier itself. Uramid posses the only Naval Base in the subsector.

The Antra frontier is part of the Regency Quarantine District 3, which runs from the beginning of the frontier in Pretoria Subsector to the border between the Antra and Namidshur Subsector in the three world line of Orenberg (Deneb 2011), Diiski (Deneb 2111), and Mazirbe (Deneb 2210). These worlds are considered to be in both RQD3 and RQD4. This overlap prevents gaps from occurring on the seams between districts where forces on each side assume threats are within the neighboring district's area of responsibility.[1]
