Majority Control Non-Aligned (Human-dominated) - 96%

The local informal name of the subsector is Parador, and many of the independent systems throughout the sector use that name rather than the Solomani version. The system of the same name, Bain (0909), is the only Solomani system in the subsector, and is the Confederation subsector Capital.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Bain, the system, serves the Solomani more as a diplomatic center than a governmental hub. Confederation officials there concentrate their focus primarily on relations with the independent worlds. The Solomani would prefer to keep more influence over these worlds than the hivers.

White Star Lines is a subsector-wide shipper owned and operated by the Trafalgar Merchants Guild. While they call their home port Trafalgar (0901), they also maintain a major operations centre on Halverson (1405) and numerous trading stations throughout the subsector.

The technocrats of Oscura (1104) are host to a Hiver enclave numbering five hundred thousand. It is a world that Hivers find comfortable. Chirpers are the sole inhabitants of Tsusist (1508) and Xoar Delta (1607) is a colony of a minor alien race from Spica Subsector.

The third of a million humans on Foster (1502) are all networked" via computer systems of all varieties and sizes. The part that makes this arrangement unusual is that they conduct the business of government this way too. They call it Networking Democracy - some call it Demarchy.

The Federation Development Agency maintains a well-staffed post at Sessions (1407), the name being the Galangic translation from the Gurvin name for the world. This world is host to minor aliens whose homeworld was discovered to be five parsecs away in Three Spheres Subsector. The Hivers have classified this world as Fascinating and the Trafalgar Merchants Guild recommends treating it as Amber. With the exception of FDA listening posts, Rhizopus (1206) is the only system whose Travel Zone classification is universally accepted in this subsector, or for that matter, in the Independent sphere of the sector.
