    Sector 1 - The Core of the Unified Government
    Located 0-100 ly from Earth
    The most understood, explored, colonized, and best defended sector of the Unified Government. It is considered the 'home turf' of humanity, and any unauthorized defolds into the sector are generally met with force. The sector is ball-shaped, with a radius of 100 light years based on Sol/Earth, at the center. It was colonized entirely by Short-Range Emigration Fleets.

  • Sectors 2 - 25 - The Main Territories Of The Unified Government
    Located: 101-200 ly from Earth, extending from in a soccer-ball like distribution around Sector 1.
    The better understood, explored, colonized and defended sectors of the Unified Government. They are considered to be the 'home turf' of humanity, and any unauthorized defolds into the sectors are generally met with force. The sectors are organized in a soccer-ball shape, with lengths of 100 light years extending outwards from Sector 1.

    Notable locations In Each Sector:
  • Sector 2: Base Magic Mirror, Battle Area ASR8283200
  • Sector 3: Hyde City
  • Sector 5: Nede
  • Sector 6: Rock 387, Pregas 2 (Iota), BCTC, Dorta, Whade, the Bell Cluster
  • Sector 7: Agno System (Edlings AFB), Antala, El Dorado, Momoyama, New Patagonia, Sisko ('Nam)
  • Sector 8: Eskar III, Hasbron, Janix II, Char System (LV-426), Thirty-Four (PCAC #34), Reebox.
  • Super Long Range Emigrant Fleet Sectors
    Located: starting from 200 ly from Earth, extending from the soccer-ball like distribution of Sectors 2 - 25.

    Dimensions: 100 ly long cylinders, with a radius of 25 ly from the core of the cylinder.

    The "core" is generally considered to be the geographical center of the course that the Super Long Range Emigrant Fleet took while navigating through the sector. It is generally considered to be the "safest passage" (as it has been successfully navigated). It also provides the link back (toward Earth) or forward (toward the Emigrant Fleet).

    +: vertically up in the galactic plane above the indicated sector (or towards the center, when the fleet travelled vertically).
    -: vertically down in the galactic plane below the indicated sector (or away from the center, when the fleet travelled vertically).
    Starboard: the right side of the outbound fleet ("up" on the Unified Government Territories Map).
    Port: the left side of the outbound fleet ("down" on the Unified Government Territories Map).
