The Great Rift is a broad expanse of space with a very low density of stars (void) lying spinward of the main region of the Third Imperium.

  • Citizens in the Imperial Core sometimes refer to the rift as the Great Reft. This is seen as a somewhat outmoded and quaint term.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Great Rift is a pronounced impediment to interstellar travel, and it constrains jumps through Corridor sector to the Spinward Marches. q.v. Lesser Rift

J-5 Trans-rift Hierate Route[edit]

A route, the J-5 Trans-rift Hierate Route, a jump bridge, exists across the great rift which requires jump-5 drives to cross without the use of Deep Space Fuel Caches.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Great Rift is one of many astrographic terrain features which have provided long-term security for the Third Imperium.

  • By its very nature, the Great Rift has made outside incursions difficult, which has made the interior of the Imperium a secure population center.
