Babadur Subsector is Subsector J of Theron Sector.

  • It lies within Charted Space.
  • It is a lawless, dangerous frontier.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Babadur Subsector is an undeveloped backwater region that has almost no settlement and sees few visitors.

  • The resources of the subsector are for the most part untapped.

On some star charts it may be referred to as Baccarin Subsector.

Astrographic Features & Trade Routes: 1105[edit]

The following astrographic and commercial data has been determined regarding Babadur Subsector:

  • The subsector is a lower stellar density region.
  • The brightest star is the white bright giant primary of the Kuvesha system.
    • It contains a cluster of giant stars known collectively as the Baba (the Fathers).
    • These are an outlying part of the Borealis Group.
  • There are multiple rift regions within the subsector

Stellar Distribution[edit]

A basic map showing the distribution and size of stars within Babadur Subsector.

  • The color corresponds to the visible color of the star, which links to its spectral classification.
  • The size as shown indicates both the physical size of the object and its relative brightness.

Note that the stars as depicted are representative. Any star, no matter what its size, is a mere speck within the hex it occupies.

  • Ordinary main sequence stars can barely be seen from even a hex away.
  • Huge, intensely luminous giant stars can be seen from across the subsector and far beyond.

Rift Regions[edit]

Three rift areas lie within the subsector: the Tahner Rift, The Neck, and the Mesial Void.

  • The Tahner Rift lies along the spinward edge of the sector.
  • The Neck, a narrow projection of the Hunter Divide, extends into the subsector from coreward.
  • The Mesial Void extends into the subsector from trailing.
  • The Neck is a named region of the Hunter Divide, a major part of the Idella Rift.
  • The Tahner Rift and the Mesial Void are part of The Gulfs, a complex of smaller rifts and voids that form an outlying region of the Idella Rift.

Locally at least, a rift is an astrographic concept based on Jump Drive performance.

The highest tech level commonly encountered out this Far Along (spinward of the Third Imperium) is TL–12, though a few worlds may be more advanced.
