J-5 Trans-Rift Hierate Route
- In Antebellum times, the Verge Connector was a minor trade route, though an important courier route between the Third Imperium and the Hierate. The Connector is now infamous for being the conduit that brought Virus into the Aslan Hierate. Because of the short lag time with which Virus reached it, the Hierate had no advanced warning, and its most heavily populated trailing regions were quickly annihilated. The Connector has remained a common means for Vampire Fleet deployment between the hot zone of the Imperial Core, and regions to spinward of the Great Rift, and it has been fortified by a mixture of Aslan and Regency forces since the Collapse.

* Note that either Hyarlih (#5) or Arleaya (#6), but not both, could be skipped. The high-population, A-starport world Hkurlei/Aokiylair (Riftspan Reaches 1517) could be substituted for both to save one jump-step along the customary route.
