Anchor is a preindustrial, moderate population world with over a hundred million, but not yet at a billion sophonts in population size.

  • As a preindustrial world, this planet cannot yet manufacture enough high-technology resources to support a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Cruxway Subsector of Daibei Sector in the Domain of Ilelish.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

The world is part of the Helena Trace.
