Sector trailing the Imperium between Ley Sector and the Two Thousand Worlds, which knows this sector as Reegzer.

Meta-History & Background[edit]

Gateway sector was designed by William H. Keith, Jr. and appears in The MegaTraveller Journal #4 (DGP, 1993).

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Today, the sector is precariously balanced between two major galactic cultures, the Imperial region to spinward and the K'kree to trailing. Though considered by galactographers to be "client states," i.e., politically dominated by one or the other of the primary cultures, the various governments of Gateway stubbornly cling to their own individuality and liberty. Indeed, many of the current political problems within the sector arise from clashes over what separate states regard as challenges to their territorial prerogatives. As evidence of this, there is no recognized sector capital, though Gateway Prime may come closest with its cosmopolitan atmosphere and control over the interstellar trade network. Instead, each interstellar government has its own capital, its own military forces, and its own network of trade and commerce.

  • Gateway's human inhabitants continue to display the love of personal freedom and rugged individualism brought to the region by their ancestors thousands of years ago. "Find two Trindelli and you have three sides to the problem" is a very old saying which can just as easily be applied to the human inhabitant of any of Gateway Sector's worlds. Stubborn, defiant, rebellious; freedom-loving, independent, and self sufficient; these are the traits and qualities which will enable the human cultures of Gateway Sector to endure, whatever the political future of the region might be.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Today there are nine major multi-system governments represented within the boundaries of the Gateway Sector.

  • The region is currently in a stage of political flux, following the break-up of the Galian Trade League within the past two centuries.
  • These two centuries have been marked by war, low-level conflict, piracy and raids among both the worlds of the governments and the various independent worlds.
  • The Three Imperiums never reached as far as Gakar Sector, as it was known in the First Imperium.
  • That fact is important in an understanding of the people who populate Gateway's worlds.

History-Era: Mileu 1100[edit]

The first human explorers probably reached the sector early during the Long Night. Records from this period are incomplete, but it is likely that colonies had been founded on Tharver, Bremen, and Salur as early as -1700 Imperial, over 2,800 years ago. The colony on Carlton was definitely founded in -1511 (AD 3007), and by that time trade routes and established space lanes already existed among a number of the sector's worlds.

  • These first explorers and colonizers were almost exclusively Solomani, descendants of the first waves of Solomani colonization which had spread out from Sol during the centuries after the fall of the Second Imperium. They came for a variety of reasons: overcrowding, poverty, or limited opportunities at home; the promise of new worlds, new frontiers, and new business opportunities on unexplored worlds. Almost without exception, they represented the rugged individualists of their parent worlds, the ones who could not or would not conform to the strictures of their own societies. They arrived in the new sector bearing the traits of independence, resourcefulness, individualism, and a strong belief in personal liberty and equality.
