District 268 is Subsector N of Spinward Marches Sector.

After it was absorbed into the Regency (sometime before 1200), this subsector was renamed Plankwell Subsector.

Description

In the early years of Marches exploration, the Spinward Main route through District 268 was the only viable route for jump-1 ships trading with the Imperial worlds in the Glisten Subsector. The Main forks into two branches at Talos (Spinward Marches 1436): the Collace Arm runs Spinward toward Five Sisters, while the Glisten Arm runs Trailing.

Although jump-2 and jump-3 traffic is more economical, enough jump-1 ships plied these routes to create a trickle of settlement.

Native Sophonts

The following races (sophont species) are believed to have originated in this area:

  • Terragens (Non-human Terran races)
    • None
