History-Era: Rebellion[edit]

The Promise Subsector (Diaspora L) was a war zone throughout the duration of the Rebellion. The post-war population of Promise Subsector is approximately 6.63 billion, representing a total decline of 302 million from pre-Rebellion totals. Worlds that experienced noteworthy decreases in population include Seagull, Amoy, Daaliisa, Exeter, Muni and Lekhaana. The highest tech is 13 at Promise.

History-Era: New Era[edit]

The most striking feature of the Promise Subsector, and one which influences the conditions on most worlds in the subsector, is the "Vampire Highway". This is a loose route of jump-2 connections extended from Tenmet (Diaspora 3121) down through the old territory of the Unity of Promise, and eventually into the Promise-Khulam Main.

  • Most of these fleets have some human maintenance crews, and many are recruited from the worlds in Promise subsector. The periodic visit of Vampire Fleets to the worlds accounts for the extraordinary number of planets with dramatically reduced tech level in the subsector. No world has really had the ability to recover, as any attempt to rebuild invariably ends in a destructive raid.
  • The vampire fleets have made no attempt to exterminate the populations on the worlds, however, and even deal with them on fairly orderly terms. Most worlds here are controlled by TEDs who rule at the pleasure of the vampire fleets. which return every six months to two years and provide the TED with additional arms and equipment in return for a fresh consignment of crew slaves.
