Subsector-Wide Lines

A subsector-wide line serves major star systems within a subsector, although some service may be extended to systems in adjacent subsectors. The key word is major; a subsector-wide line typically serves between one-quarter to one-third of the worlds within the subsector. The routes operated connect worlds off the main trade routes with those on the main routes. Subsector­wide lines also create their own routes connecting especially lucrative markets.

Subsector-wide lines also extend their service to selected major worlds in adjacent subsector.

Subsector-wide lines serve as feeders to sector-wide lines, while they are themselves fed by fledgling lines and occasional free traders.

An example of a subsector-wide line is Sinzarmes.
