The Deep Sector is considered to be a part of the Distant Fringe. It forms a part of the Empty Stars.

Description[edit]

A sector located to rimward-trailing of the Distant Fringe proper. It is located almost entirely within the Great Void.

The positions and types of its stars have been cataloged as part of the University of Tal Varisa Deep Sky Program.

History & Background[edit]

Deep Sector was first named and charted by human settlers from the Last Armada when they arrived in the Distant Fringe region over 3 millennia ago. The first Sophonts known to have deliberately entered the Sector were the Sath crew of the Hiishiiha, in 5338AD.

Deep Sector has remained uninhabited throughout almost the whole of its history. The first (and only) settlement within the sector was founded on the garden world of Chiik, a little under a decade ago.

Around 5450AD the Sath achieved a domestic Tech Level of 11, gaining the ability to construct their own Jump-2 capable DeVoss-type Jump Drives. Prior to this Jump-2 drives were only available from human sources and in extremely short supply.

Since 5550AD the Shikh’aa Faction have been constructing the enormous Ith-Saa-Ka Waypoint in hex 3038 of Far Home Sector, opening the possibility of regular Jump-2 travel between the Sath Alliance and the Hak'tha Spread.
