- A location in the Mythology of Lon Beon.
Details / Specifications
Rann's Stars is a grouping of stars located in the central-spinward part of Lucent Sector. It also covers part of the trailing edge of Jontell Sector. It is bounded by the Jewelled Void to spinward, the Grand Arc to trailing, and Hopes Jump to rimward. The Scattered Suns lies to coreward.
The Dissident Fleet is reckoned to have passed through the cluster as it made its way to spinward.
They cluster is named for Keslo Rann, the commander of the Hope Triumphant, a lost armored cruiser of the Dissident Fleet. In the Mythology of Lon Beon, the crew and settlers aboard the Hope Triumphant not only survived but were able to build their own starfaring civilisation within the Rann's Stars cluster, using DeVoss Drives and Terran technology.
The denizens of Rann's Stars held Slaver artifacts, found in the Kineda Cluster, that both Lon Beon and the Empire of Thrax needed and sought to acquire. As the cluster lay beyond the range of the Centrum Device, the artifacts remained dormant, as did the equipment of those sent to recover them. The inhabitants of Rann's Stars proved to be cunning and clever and despite their low technology (or perhaps because of it) have consistently managed to outwit the agents of both Lon Beon and the Empire of Thrax.
