The campaign originally used as its basis the 2D star locations shown on the old Solomani Rim sector and portions of neighbouring sectors. With the advent of more modern programs and with more details about the stellar neighbourhood around Sol becomming known I finally converted the game to a 3D universe with a somewhat altered background.
Humanspace is divided into what is known as Core Space which contains the known major human states. Humans from outside this region are known as Outsiders and are looked on by most Core Spacers as barbaric and backward. There are also aliens out there in Outsider Space, but to date apart from some brief interaction with what was thought to be the Thalor no known contact between an alien species and the humans of Core Space has yet occurred.
