Cronor Subsector

Map of Cronor subsector, c.1107 (image produced by the Galactic 2.4 program written by Jim Vassilakos)The Cronor subsector (subsector A of the Spinward Marches) lies at the extreme spinward reach of the Imperial frontier, and has long been a point of friction between the Imperium and the Zhodani Consulate. The Second Frontier War (615-620) began with an attack on Cipango ( Cronor / Spinward Marches 0705) and then exploded to engulf three subsectors. Ultimately, the Cronor subsector was lost as a result of the war, and the borders established have remained roughly the same to this day.

Absorption of the various worlds of the subsector into the Zhodani Consulate is a relatively recent phenomenon; only over the past century have some of the worlds off the major communication routes been consolidated into the mainstream of Zhodani society. Incursions which are collectively called the Fourth Frontier War (1082-1084) resulted in some realignment of accepted boundaries, but in no real gains for either side. Away from established jump lanes, the sparse population of the subsector has resisted domination, although only in a passive vein.

The Zhodani have placed their capital at Cronor ( Cronor / Spinward Marches 0304), a communication nexus with important ties to the Jewell and Querion subsectors. The Imperium has maintained a tenuous naval base at Quar ( Cronor / Spinward Marches 0808) since 1083.

The Cronor subsector contains 24 worlds and a population of 3.682 billion. The highest population level is 9, at Cronor ; the highest tech level is D, also at Cronor . The entire subsector should be treated as an Amber Zone by Imperial citizens.
