Jump Bridges[edit]

A Jump Bridge of considerable age gives Jump-1 vessels access to the Sha'a Cluster and the Chaiik system, the seat of the Issh’t’ka. A second much larger and far more modern Jump Bridge has been emplaced within the Great Void to open the systems of the Hak'tha Spread to conventional traffic:

Linguistic Topography[edit]

The following languages are the most commonly spoken within Sarudis Subsector:


The fractious Sath Alliance dominates the Subsector. The K'shek Cluster, the major part of its territory within the region, is held by the Shikh’aa Faction, while the Sha'a Cluster is divided between the Ka’sa Faction and their Khas'ahi allies. The Alliance is overseen by the aloof Issh't'ka, or Shadow Emperor, in whose name the Sath act.

Interstellar Relations[edit]

The Shikh’aa Faction of the Sath Alliance see themselves as the elder members of the Alliance and are primarily neutral. They are focused on exploration into the empty and unexplored clusters of stars lying within the Moat Rifts and the Great Void. A great deal of their energy has gone into the construction of the Ith-Saa-Ka Waypoint and the emplacement of port facilities and infrastructure on previously barren worlds. Much of their military strength is arrayed against the Ka’sa and Khas'ahi Factions.

The Ka’sa and Khas'ahi Factions, primarily located within the Sha'a Cluster to spinward, are engaged in a violent and bloody war against humans in the Hell Worlds region. They launch large-scale offensives and raids into human territory within the rimward-trailing quadrant of the sector, particularly along the Star Lane known as The Descent. They vastly outnumber the human defenders but their technology is markedly inferior. Much of their military strength is arrayed against the Shikh’aa Faction.


Ch'kaahi, the homeworld of the Sath, serves as the Subsector capital.

History & Background[edit]

Sath Subsector saw some early activity by humans, but exploration was stifled by the policies of the Second Confederation. The Sath expanded into the region but suffered early setbacks. Their ongoing development was ended by the onset of the Dark Age. Almost all expansion and growth within the region is relatively modern, beginning during the Renaissance period and continuing until the present day.
