A sector is an area of space which typically contain a number of star systems and are typically measured as being 20x20x20 light years in size. Most sectors are assigned numbers as they are charted, however some sectors are assigned names after an important star system in the sector.

A sector is a region of space as identified by the United Nations Space Command. Sectors usually contain several star systems, some of which are UNSC colony worlds. Other sectors contain no planets at all.

There appear to be two systems for naming sectors, one for inhabited sectors, one for uninhabited sectors. The UNSC Navy designates sectors as "FLEETCOM Sector (number)" to denote the division of command the sector's inhabitants fall under. Other sectors are simply designated "Sector (letter)-(three numbers)".

"You've been working in the same sectors too long, Jack...makes for comfortable pirating but narrows your view of the universe."
―Han Solo

A galactic sector was an area of space framed by an artificial boundary for political, economic and military organization.

History

Map of the galaxy, including planets and sectors.

Groupings of inhabited systems organized themselves into informal sectors from before the Infinite Empire. The Galactic Republic was the first body to attempt a large scale application of standardized sectors. A sector was defined by the Republic as having a maximum of 50 inhabited star systems to keep sectors at a manageable level.

The rapid exploration, expansion and colonization beginning around 5,000 BBY caused many sectors to grow larger than the intended size. For instance, in 19 ABY, the Remnant controlled only eight sectors, which were said to contain "over a thousand inhabited systems"[1], which would indicate an average size of 125 inhabited systems per sector. At some point in the history of the galaxy, there were millions of sectors, as populations grew rapidly. The Russan Reformations of 1,000 BBY reorganized the galaxy into 1,024 regional sectors, which were divided into even smaller constituent subsectors.[2]

The Russan Reformations were problematic however, as they created a moratorium on the creation of new sectors, meanwhile beings would continue to inhabit worlds beyond the borders of the established Republic. This led to annexation and overinflation of existing sectors. For example, the lightly populated Chommell sector encompassed 36 full-member worlds, more than 40,000 settled dependencies and 300,000,000 barren stars in the final years of the Republic.[3] Chancellor Palpatine reversed the moratorium on new regional sectors and created new sectors by dividing up larger ones. Any freestanding subsectors were grouped up into a single sector.[2]

When the Galactic Empire took control of the Republic's sectors, Moffs replaced senators as sectorial governors. Sectors were also commonly expanded and collapsed together to consolidate power in the officers delegated by Palpatine to rule. Any unincorporated territories wishing for inclusion to the Empire became new freestanding subsectors, and were added to new or existing regional sectors as events warranted.[2]

Many sectors owed their name to their primary system which in turn was named after its primary planet. For example the planet Alderaan belonged to the Alderaan system and thus, to the Alderaan sector.

Planetary sectors

The word "sector" was also used to denote subdivisions of planets, especially for ecumenopolis such as Coruscant or Nar Shaddaa, but even on less populated worlds such as Tatooine.

Coruscant

Ambassadorial, Blue, Dead (aka Dacho District), Invisible Sector (aka Invisec), Numesh, Vishtu, Zi-Kree Crimson Corridor

From Traveller Wiki - Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far future

A Sector is a astrophysical co-ordinate system applied to the galaxy. A sector is part of a Domain within the Imperium, and contains sub-sectors.

Mapping unit in astrography equal to sixteen subsectors. Average density 500 to 650 worlds per sector. Sectors are named, and several synonyms are in common use, including march (or marches), region, reach (or reaches), quadrant, and matrix. The Spinward Marches, for example, is a sector.

As a rough means of comparing size, the sector counts of the large interstellar states and areas of settlement are: the Imperium: 19; the Aslan Hierate: 15; the Hive Federation:11; the Two Thousand Worlds: 9; the Vargr Extents: 9; the Zhodani Consulate: 8; the Solomani Confederation: 5.

Several sectors are known by other names (by non-imperial races). Strangely enough they use the same co-ordinate system. The earliest known use of the term sector was among the Vilani, who used a slightly smaller 'parsec', compared to the current, Solomani-derived parsec.

The library refers to all sectors with the word Sector, thus Riftspan Reaches, or Dark Nebula are known as Riftspan Reaches Sector or Dark Nebula Sector in Library Entries even though the former name is used in normal discussion.
