The Divide Sector is considered to be a part of the Distant Fringe.

Meta-History & Background[edit]

A sector lying to spinward of Halcyon Sector and characterised by the Moat Rifts. It contains 100 systems and has a listed population of approximately 5.583 million sophonts. Two subsectors (subsectors L and P) are accessible to conventional jump-2 vessels travelling from the Distant Fringe.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Divide sector contains the most technologically advanced system in the Fringe region, at Resulos (2729 Divide). It is overseen by the High Energy Research Department of the University of Selasia.

Humans have dwelt within Divide Sector for almost three millennia.

Linguistic Topography[edit]

The following languages are among the most commonly spoken within Divide sector:

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Native Sophonts (NILs):[edit]

No native sophont species are known to exist within Divide Sector. There are very probably unknown NILs among its many unnamed and unexplored systems.

Demographics[edit]

Significant populations of the following races (sophont species) are found within Divide Sector:

  • Non-Human Races:
    • Esaran: approximately 70,000 (1.26% of the population), almost entirely concentrated in Cantons on Observatory (2638 Divide) and Resulos (2729 Divide).
    • Temelik: approximately 5000 (0.09% of the population).

Historical Eras[edit]

History: General Overview[edit]

Although its exact route is unknown, the Dissident Fleet almost certainly travelled across the coreward part of Divide Sector some time after 2255AD as it fled the Destruction of Terra and the pursuing Vilani.

Divide Sector has been settled for over two millennia, though its listed population only numbers in the millions. It remained unsettled until the Third Confederation, when the Hylan Spur was selected as the final bastion of Terran humanity by the Redoubt Program.

The sector lost the majority of its population during the Dark Age (only Nevik survived) and was unaffected by the events of Scavenger Season and the Golden Age. The rimward-trailing quadrant of the sector was claimed by Bright Expansion, later coming under the control of the University of Selasia. Despite its remote location it contains the single most advanced world within the Distant Fringe.

Timeline of Major Historical Events[edit]

Politics[edit]

Divide Sector is largely unexplored: only a part of the rimward-trailing quadrant of the sector is inhabited. Although the area is nominally Non-aligned, it is dominated by the Bright Conclave, which controls all access to it.

Polities of Divide Sector[edit]

Divide Sector contains no independent polities. Those areas that have been explored and settled fall generally under the aegis of the Bright Conclave and the University of Selasia.
