These are some of the more important historical events that have affected this subsector: Glisten was an isolated spur of the Imperial X-Boat network; until 940, it was a backwater for marginal officials of the Imperial bureaucracy.

However, in 941, District 268 was opened by decree of Margaret II and has since served as a base for the colonization of the new territory. The subsector is connected to the Spinward Main by the Glisten Arm.
