Festab Subsector is Subsector B of Theta Borealis Sector.

  • It lies within Charted Space.
  • On older surveys it may be referred to as the Festab Quadrant.

World Details: 1105[edit]

Detailed UWP data for all the worlds listed within the subsector can be retrieved from Theta Borealis Sector data files.

Astrographic Features & Trade Routes: 1105[edit]

The following astrographic and commercial data has been determined:

Mains[edit]

The Korsumug Main, the great chain of Jump-1 systems linking Astron Sector, Theta Borealis Sector, and Mavuzog Sector, runs through the subsector.

  • It is also known as the Thetan Main.
  • The narrow bridge of stars that carries the Main across the Thetan rifts is known as the Korsumug Gate.
  • Korsumug raiders cruise the Main, looking for plunder, resources, and glory.

  • The majority of worlds forming the Main lie within Theta Borealis sector.

Borealis Group[edit]

The subsector forms part of the Borealis Group, a gigantic, broadly spherical cluster of stars centered on Theta Borealis Sector.

  • It is a distinctive, extremely bright feature that can be easily observed from all across Charted Space.
  • It is more than 40 parsecs in diameter.
  • It contains an unusually high number of giant stars.
  • It is the density of giant stars within the region, rather than their individual brightness, that makes the feature so prominent.

The night-time skies of all of the worlds across the region are studded with a panoply of colorful, intensely bright stars.

  • Some are so bright that they can be clearly seen from planetary surfaces during daylight hours.
  • The brightest is Theta Borealis, an unstable, violent, blue-white bright supergiant with a luminosity of around 73,000 sols.
  • Other extremely bright stars within the cluster include Sigma Borealis, Tau Borealis, Epsilon Borealis, Mu Borealis, and Kappa Borealis.
  • While the cluster contains many extremely luminous giant stars, Theta B is exponentially brighter than any of the others.

Chains of giant stars trail out from the cluster into many of the surrounding sectors.

Stellar Distribution[edit]

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

Subsector Summary: 1105[edit]

Festab, subsector B of Theta Borealis contains 25 worlds with an estimated population of 21 billion, a per capita income of Cr2,547, and a total economy is BCr54,073. These worlds originate an interstellar trade of BCr89 through 22 starports (2 Class A, 3 Class B, 9 Class C, 8 Class D) employing 9,840 people. Driving this interstellar trade are three Agricultural (Ag) worlds, two Non-Agricultural (Na) worlds, three Pre-Agricultural (Pa) worlds, one Pre-Industrial (Pi) world, two Rich (Ri) worlds, and one Industrial (In) world. The governments in Festab maintain two Scout bases. The average technology level is 7 (with most between 4 and 10). The highest technology level is 13 at Pautho (Theta Borealis 1506) and Isbelra (Theta Borealis 1602).

Festab, subsector B of Theta Borealis contains 41 stars and 281 identified planets; 14 monostellar systems, seven binary systems, three trinary systems, and one system with four or more stars. 13 of the 25 systems (52%) have native gas giants. There are no Asteroid (As) belts, two Desert (De) worlds, two Garden (Ga) worlds, one Ice-capped (Ic) world, four Poor (Po) worlds, one Vacuum (Va) world, and no Water (Wa) or Ocean (Oc) worlds.

Festab has an estimated population of 21 billion distributed across three High population (Hi) worlds, no Moderate population (Ph) worlds, 13 Non-industrial (Ni) worlds, five Low population (Lo) worlds, and no Barren (Ba) worlds. The highest population worlds are Dinian (Theta Borealis 1309), Kathol (Theta Borealis 1608), and Caxel (Theta Borealis 1609). The population consists of 1 sophont groups.

Trooles Confederation[edit]

The Trooles Confederation has jurisdiction over 15 worlds with an estimated population of 226 million, a per capita income of Cr1,685, and a total economy is BCr381. These worlds originate an interstellar trade of BCr1 through 12 starports (1 Class A, 1 Class B, 6 Class C, 4 Class D) employing 410 people. Driving this interstellar trade are three Agricultural (Ag) worlds, two Non-Agricultural (Na) worlds, no Pre-Agricultural (Pa) worlds, one Pre-Industrial (Pi) world, two Rich (Ri) worlds, and no Industrial (In) worlds. The average technology level is 7 (with most between 4 and 9). The highest technology level is 13 at Isbelra (Theta Borealis 1602).

The Trooles Confederation has an estimated population of 226 million distributed across no High population (Hi) worlds, no Moderate population (Ph) worlds, eight Non-industrial (Ni) worlds, three Low population (Lo) worlds, and no Barren (Ba) worlds. The highest population worlds are Galores (Theta Borealis 1204), Huflink (Theta Borealis 1504), Ivorholm (Theta Borealis 1101), and Malvord (Theta Borealis 1502). The population consists of 1 sophont groups.

Non-Aligned, Human-dominated[edit]

There are nine Non-Aligned Human-dominated worlds in Festab with an estimated population of 21 billion.

Client state, Third Imperium[edit]
