A term applied to those star systems within the Distant Fringe that can be reached by conventional vessels. The Demon Cluster.

Description / Specifications[edit]

The performance limit of DeVoss-type drives – the so-called Jump-2 Barrier – tends to restrict interstellar travel to clusters and chains of star systems lying within 6.5–7 parsecs of one another. While larger gaps can be bridged through the use of long-range or X-range vessels, such craft are inefficient in terms of revenue generated per ton of displacement and are relatively rare.


History & Background / Dossier[edit]

Those star systems not able to be reached by conventional starships are generally described as Beyond The Fringe.
