The New Islands Subsector lies in a pocket of stars deep within the
Reft Sector. Colonized in the second wave of settlement after the European Space Agency
Long-range Colony Mission arrived in this section of the Great Rift, it now boasts four
major worlds with substantial populations. The most populous is Esperanza, far to the edge
of the cluster, followed by New Colchis, Joyeuse, and Serendip Belt.
Esperanza: Located on the extreme spinward edge of the Clusters, Esperanza is ruled by a well-entrenched non-charismatic dictatorship which enforces an oppressive political structure. Its tentacles extend to two vassal worlds: Wellington and St. Hilaire. Esperanzan technology (at B) lags behind the other major worlds of the New and Old Island subsectors.
New Colchis: A tertiary world colonised from Colchis, which was in turn colonized from New Home, New Colchis is an industrialized trade center with a colony at Herzenslust. Its government is headed by a charismatic dictator.
Joyeuse: Straddling the divider between the New and Old Islands, Joyeuse is a well-developed world with a government similar to that of Esperanza. It has a colony at Quichotte.
Serendip Belt: The asteroid belt at Serendip is a rich storehouse of mineral wealth; it is inhabited by independent merchants and miners under a feudal technocracy form of government. The center of government is still the C-Jammer. Serendip controls nearby Gloire as an agricultural colony.
