History-Era: Mileu 1100[edit]

The Ustral Quadrant was first settled by Human emigres from Terra (Solomani Rim 1827) during the Interstellar Wars era. By -2204, there were at least seven settlements in subsectors B, C, F, J, and K, all well beyond the border of the Terran Confederation.

  • Once the Aslan achieved jump drive in -1999, they began to expand across Dark Nebula and the surrounding sectors. After -1180, some of the Solomani worlds in Ustral Quadrant were settled by desperate refugees from the old Terran colonies deeper in the Hierate that eventually fell during the Aslan Border Wars. During this period the Solomani colonies in Ustral Quadrant came under increasing pressure from the expanding Aslan, and over time most of these colonies were gradually absorbed or assimilated.
  • From 382 to 429 the Imperium undertook the Aslan Mission, a goodwill embassy by the Scout Service to understand the Hierate. As part of the Mission the IISS provided considerable assistance to the clusters of Aslan worlds in and around the Ustral client states. The Aslan corporation Layaefui, dedicated to exploration, was founded at this time, and adopted many of the IISS standards and procedures for conducting surveys and exploration. Today Layaefui is headquartered in Ustral Quadrant.
  • Under the Solomani Autonomous Region the humans began pushing back against the Aslan tide. In the 800s subsector governments in Canopus became dominated by Solomani Party regimes; these governments used their new autonomy to forge alliances with and then absorb independent Solomani states in Ustral Quadrant. These newly-strengthened polities began ‘liberating’ worlds in the Aslan buffer zone in violation of Peace of Ftahalr and other long-standing agreements.
  • Imperial Naval forces in the region found themselves ordered not to intervene as Solomani colonial navy squadrons struck into Aslan space, only to be called into action to defend Imperial worlds against Aslan retaliatory raids. The situation was becoming untenable, and in 835 Empress Paula II ordered the Imperial Navy to pull back entirely from Dark Nebula, Canopus and Ustral sectors, leaving responsibility for defense of these sectors entirely to Solomani colonial fleets.
  • Following the Solomani Rim War relations between the Confederation with the Hierate did not improve. The Confederation Navy responded forcefully when Aslan clans probed for weakness on the spinward border; in 1007 Ustral was the scene of an inconclusive battle between a Solomani Navy squadron and Aslan warships.

  • 0.00% is controlled by the Third Imperium.
  • 100.00% is controlled by non-Imperial powers.

Polity Notes[edit]

The Hierate holds a little more than six subsectors, with the Uiktawa clan and its vassals, Ftawsteaoihair and Hweolriya, controlling the Ustral frontier as well as a few colonies further rimward. The Confederation holds approximately two subsectors.

  • The balance of Ustral includes non-aligned worlds and three interstellar client states of the Hierate: Tealou Arlaoh, which controls 10 systems in I and M subsectors; Iyeaao'fte, which controls 36 systems in I, J, M, and N subsectors, and Oleaiy'fte, which controls 36 systems in K, O, and P subsectors, as well as territory in Canopus Sector.
