History & Background (Dossier)
New Home (Reft 1925) built a second interstellar spaceship in 291 and launched it toward Esparanza. Esperanza was settled in 421. 
Located on the extreme spinward edge of the Clusters, Esperanza is ruled by a well-entrenched non-charismatic dictatorship which enforces an oppressive political structure. Its tentacles extend to two vassal worlds: Wellington (Reft 0925) and St. Hilaire (Reft 0930). Esperanzan technology (at B) lags behind the other major worlds of the two subsectors. 
Two life-forms of potentially intelligent levels were present in the Clusters when the colonists arrived. One, the Batwings of Esperanza, has subsequently been identified as Droyne; they were eradicated within two hundred years of their arrival, a process Esperanzan historians are strangely reluctant to discuss.
