Knoellighz Sector is a frontier sector situated between the very orderly Zhodani Consulate and the very disorderly Vargr Extents. The Zhodani side of the sector is intensely organized and high tech. The Vargr side is anything and everything else: intensely chaotic and gloriously free!
This sector has been known by different names to different groups over its existence including the following:
|Third Imperium||Khoellighz||Third Imperium|
|Droyne||Unknown||Droyne Oytrip Yatroy|
|K'kree||Unknown||Two Thousand Worlds|

History & Background (Dossier)
Similar to laws found in Geology, (Law of Original Horizontality, Cross-cutting Relationships and Superposition), Knoellighz Sector was surveyed and settled after Spinward Itvikiastaf, Trailing Dhuerorrg and Rimward Gvurrdon Sectors as a meeting of two Major Races, the Vargr and the Zhodani.
- The Democracy of Greats entered Knoellighz from Trailing while the Zhodani Consulate occupied, in uniform motion, the two Spinward-Rimward subsectors.
- Roughly the same time and at different rates of annexation, the Ascendancy Pact, Infinity League, and Oculus Alignment entered from Rimward, (though the Oculus Alignment actually arrived first of the three and was stunted by poor world choice.).
- All polities and non-aligned worlds share a tendency for coreward expansion though at vastly different rates.
The following races (sophont species) are believed to have originated within this area:
- Humaniti (Human races)
- Non-Human Races
Significant populations of the following races (sophont species) reside within this sector:
History-Era: Mileu 1100
1119: The Empress Wave begins sweeping into the Coreward border of the Sector. Many Vargr Psions and those merely trained in psionics are caught unawares and without adequate protection from what the Zhodani termed "Yonder Chilling Thought". In comparison, the Vargr of this sector recover more quickly than their Zhodani neighbors from the phenomenal effects of the Wave. Most Vargr Psions go unmissed by their home worlds, clusters or polities, perhaps due to Vargr mercurial behaviors.

The two great powers of this astrographic region are the Vargr and Zhodani. While the Zhodani are unified and stand strongly together, the Vargr Extents are anything but... And wild west of squabbling factions, disparate cultures, and pure anarchical freedom.
