An astrographic trade route.
History & Background (Dossier)
This region was very heavily developed in antebellum times. Even in those days there existed deeply ingrained technological and economic rivalries between the leading worlds of the region. In contrast to the Regency Stronghold, the Midway held all of Deneb sector's highest technology. Competition was a four way tug between Magash/Sabine, Starn/Inar, Rhylanor/Rhylanor, and of course Vincennes/Vincennes, with Kubishush, Ashasi and Thingen fighting over niche markets. These rivalries never took on tradewar proportions, as it would have prompted an Imperial intervention harmful to business. But there was petty intrigue, nasty pricing and industrial espionage galore.
Regional unity became a casualty of their bickering, as it was apt to paralyse the region even in times of crisis. This backbiting was one of the major reasons for both the Industrial Development Program, and the choice of Mora as a TL16 world.
