(Redirected from Sector)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A section of space, comprising of grids of a certain size used to divide up and analyze a specific part of space. Usually a stellar cartography term, sectors can contain anywhere from small, gridded parts of a solar system, to many solar systems per grid, depending on the purpose of the map created. A group of sectors is called a sector block, which is located in a quadrant. Most sectors are numbered, and in some cases, named after an important star system in that sector. In Federation nomenclature, the Sol system and Earth are located in Sector 001.

A 'subsector' is a region of space smaller than a sector and located within sectors.
