Mains & Clusters / Star Routes / Astronomic Clusters / Jump Paths (2018)[edit]

Lets list the point of concerns here; by sector.

Generally, I'll name a cluster to a group of five or more worlds that are within J-1 connectivity. There are some exceptions to groupings of smaller size.

Naming the cluster is a combination of the highest Importance Extension (as per T5 SS) starport/tech level and a minor smattering of name interest. The names listed are by no means the only names possible, but will most likely "stick" unless there is a previous name mentioned in the multitude of published data (which I plan on eventually digging into).

Atlas of the Imperium - Second Survey - Annotated

This annotated Atlas of the Imperium shows the Third Imperium and adjacent sectors and notes clusters, mains and branches as provided by the Imperial Interstellar Scout Service. The names for the various astrographic features are by no means the only “official” names, nor are all clusters named within this volume (especially regarding the larger mains that may spread across several sectors).

For sectors outside of the Third Imperium the author relies on data gathered from “reputable” sources other than the IISS and should therefore be considered inaccurate for navigation purposes, but rather only as reference to areas outside of IISS normal operations.

Creative Naming (2018)[edit]

Steve, I love it.

  • It looks like you have already found that I have laid down structure for this project.
  • I have also discussed it at CotI several times.
  • Great work. Really coming along.
  • I have one quibbling pint. Let's get a little more variety in the names: run, loop, etc.
  • As far as I can tell, there is really no difference between main, trace, cluster, etc. In function, they are used interchangeably.
  • Thomas and I have discussed this in the past.

I'll see if I can get a little more creative with the names, but just think of that "Minor Imp" sitting someplace with nothing but a terminal to keep him company. Kind of hard to get creative.. Ssteve (talk) 11:38, 11 February 2018 (EST)


See Talk:Main, there is a list of possible names included in the discussion. Tjoneslo (talk) 14:09, 11 February 2018 (EST)

I was about to point you to the same link as Thomas. Go, Thomas!

  • I am willing to help, but I didn't want to intrude since you are doing such a great job.
  • Are you ok with help doing the renaming?
  • I also put down framework for you build out those articles. I'll begin helping as I can.

  • This list is FANTASTIC! I have been using either the base names or synonyms of the words cluster, trace, group, and main in most cases. It has been pretty limiting. I already have this copied to the Excel spreadsheet I use to work up my entries so thank you Tjoneslo and indeed everyone for this great list. Expect to see these names cropping up in my Daibei entries. Happy as a clam to see these alternatives!!!

Please have at it.

  • Add new ones if you come up with them. Please.
  • Thomas is pretty great. The wiki is very lucky to have him.
