The Lanth subsector is an unusual rift province. Rather than being scattered across the subsector, the majority of its worlds are situated in a trailing crescent around the edge of the rift. This means that although perched on the edge of the so-called Abyss rift, a major impedimant to interstellar travel, its coreward and trailing borders constitute two main branches of the most important communications network of the sector: the Spinward Main, making it a transport nexus.
Its major communications route crosses the rift and provides the only link with the Regina, Vilis, and Jewell subsectors.
Tureded, a small agricultural world, has recently become of increasing importance as a trade and shipping centre because it lies on the Spinward Main at a junction for jump-1 travel from rimward to the Regina, Jewell, and Rhylanor subsectors. It is expected that Tureded will be upgraded to a class B starport within the next decade. The Scout Service is currently negotiating the establishment of a Scout base, with the apparent intention of an xboat link from Rhylanor to Dinomn and Regina.
The Lanth subsector contains 27 worlds with a population of 3.358 billion. The highest population is 8, at Extolay (1711), Treece (2311), and Equus (2417); the highest tech level is D, at D'Ganzio (1920).
