The Sirius Gap was a small but strategically important Void in the Solomani Rim Sector now bridged by the Sirius Gap Jump Bridge.

  • It is a micro-rift that is traversed by many using a jump bridge.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Sirius (Solomani Rim 1629) sits between the old Terran colony at Fenris (Solomani Rim 1830) and the cluster of worlds centered on Shulimik (Solomani Rim 1530).

  • As Sirius is an asteroid belt system without gas giants or any other natural source of fuel, bypassing Sirius requires a jump-3 ship or better.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

In ancient times, there was no way for ships to refuel in the Sirius system, so passing between Fenris and Shulimik or Markhashi (Solomani Rim 1529) required considerable logistical planning.

  • This fact was of strategic significance during the Interstellar Wars, and again during the Long Night.
  • During the Iilike-Sirius War a vital refueling station in Sirius was destroyed.
  • Today, the Sirius Gap has once again been “filled in” by a new complex of refueling stations at the Sirius Belt, a functional jump bridge.
