"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.



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.

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

This page provides a source for all named sectors in the library, and provides alternate names for sectors from other governments. Names for 199 sectors are descibed in the Canon.

Co-ordinates are given in Imperial x,y grid coordinates where core is 0,0. Corewards is +y, rimwards -y. Trailing is +x, and spinward is -x. (Basically the standard map with core at the top the grid is the standard x to the right and y to the top).

Names used in the library are the Imperial names for the sectors.

As the list is so long it has been broken up into 4 lists of about 55 sectors each, either alphabetically or by distance corward/rimward:
