The Katar Sector is an astrographical region within the Scutum-Centaurus Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy, though its boundaries are vaguely defined and rarely agreed upon by its inhabitants.
It is home to the Drodo Empire, a long standing power in the sector. New arrivals include the Farengeto Republic, and the French Andromedan Colonies. Once dominated by the powerful Katar Sector Alliance, the aftermth of the Lightning War saw the Alliance begin to collapse as the Aeoneonatrix Empire vanished from the sector, leaving the Aeoneonatrix Anomaly Region behind, while the Miperior-Amphibibot Coalition proved inadequate to take up the role. Like a series of falling dominoes, a series of futher collapses saw the KSA largely dominated by the Drodo Empire and the Farengeto Trade Coalition until it was eventually absorbed into the Xonexi Allies. The victory of the Allies in the Battle of Katar during the Great Xonexian Schism resulted in a final golden age for the inhabitants of the Katar Sector as long-standing threats such as the Grand Tarkan Empire were finally pacified. This era however would come to an abrupt end due to political instability within the Drodo Empire, which saw it collapse into various feuding states, a development which negatively impacted the Farengeto. The aftermath saw the birth of the truly massive Drodo Anomality Zone much engulfed the old Drodo Empire while the Aeoneonatrix Anomality Zone began to slowly weaken.
The name "Katar" comes from the Drodoian word meaning "Nest." Though it has many names and boundaries among the species inhabiting it, the Drodoian denomination is by far the most common. This is commonly attributed to their role as the eldest power in the region.
Located halfway up the Norma Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy, the Katar Sector stretches from the edges of the Delcath and Hagkrazon subsectors over roughly three thousand five hundred lightyears to far side of the Watchta Subsector. Most estimates place the sector's star count at 3,636,880.
The sector itself is divided into a number of smaller sectors of varying size and composition. The borders of these are generally established by the subsector's inhabitants.
Within the Katar Sector, there are a number of wormholes that facilitate travel to other parts of the universe. Some are naturally-occurring and have spawned from random fluctuations in space-time, while others were artificially generated by advanced civilizations. There are currently three wormholes in Katar:
- Charal-Katar Wormhole: This wormhole was constructed in 2791 by the Drakodominatus Tyranny to bridge their territories in the Milky Way to those in Charal, Andromeda. It was attacked and subsequently taken over by the United Free Peoples Coalition at the Battle for the Katar Wormhole, paving the way for further Coalition conquests in the sector. After the collapse of the Coalition control was transferred to the French Andromedan Colonies.
- Tyris-Varapha Wormhole: This wormhole was constructed by the Violaven Union at the behest of the Waptoria Alliance of Species in their mapping of the Katar sector just prior to the Grea Deciever conflict. It was unconnected to the Waptorian heartlands in the Mirus Galaxy and instead led to the Waptorian-controlled Kindleflame Nebula in Tyris Major, the hub for Waptorian exploration and efforts. During most of the The Great Deceiver, it was blockaded by the Galactic Protection Agency which fought on behest of the the Hegemony, forcing the Waptoria to rely on local allies. In the aftermath of the forced Waptorian retreat from the sector at the conflict's end, they had the Violaven collapse the wormhole so that neither the Drakodominatus Tyranny nor the Katar Sector Alliance could make use of it.
- Katar-Cyrannus Wormhole: Located just outside the Katar Sector, this naturally-occuring wormhole to the Cyrannus Galaxy was initially discovered by the Troodontids during the events of the The Great Deceiver. Abandoned prior to the events of Attero Dominatus, the wormhole was rediscovered and claimed by the Farengeto Republic in 2796, who would use it to mount expeditions and colonization of the Cyrandia cluster, establishing the Farengeto Quadrant Colonies and Farengeto Cyrannian Administration. Fearing potential threats from the Delpha Coalition of Planets and the Cyrannus Galaxy, a joint operation between the Katar Sector Alliance and the Orion League built Frontier 1 to defend the wormhole. Frontier 1 would later become the seat of Farengeto Cyrannian Administration after the establishment of colonies on both sides of the wormhole by the Farengeto Trade Coalition.
- Farengeto GITO Wormhole: The Farengeto GITO Wormhole was constructed in 2799 after the Katar Sector alliance was admitted into the Gigaquadrantic Intergalactic Trade Organization. After debate by the Alliance, the planet of Farengeto was selected as the economic capital of Katar and the location of the new wormhole, reflecting the world's increasing economic role both in Katar and on the intergalactic scale. The wormhole links Farengeto to the GITO wormhole network.
- Aeoneonatrix Anomaly Region: Engulfing the old teritories of the Aeoneonatrix Empire, it has been speculated that the entire zone serves as a massive wormhole to the Aeoneonatrix' current whereabouts at the Exterioris-Draco-Crepusculum junction of the Andromeda Galaxy. This is, however, only speculation. The entire Anomality Zone is nominally under the jurisdiction of the Farengeto, but is in truth wild space as it's spacetime anomalities make it impossible to govern. Numeroes explorers have tried to map the Aeoneoantrix Anomality Zone in the past, all of whom went missing.
Prior to the rise of the Drodo Empire, the Katar Sector was a quiet place devoid of anything of interest, a backwater. There were the squabbling few spacefaring nations, but none of these would grow to have a dominant presence in the region.
Great Tyranny War Edit
The Great Deceiver Edit
Main page: The Great Deceiver
In 2791, the Drakodominatus Tyranny once again turned its attention to the Katar Sector. However, an ongoing war with the Delpha Coalition of Planets had exhausted its resources. To avoid having to fight a war on two fronts, Grand Admiral Dialztreanvitz Raeditzkraft decided upon a much subtler method of conquest. Using replicated Drodo technology, he managed to convince The Hegemony that the Drodo were preparing to attack them.
The Hegemony launched a preemptory strike against the Drodo, thereby plunging the two powers and their allies into a long and costly war. Once the two sides had sufficiently exhausted themselves, the Tyranny attacked. The Bova, Velund, Horpel, and Catharas subsectors quickly fell to their onslaught, and soon the Drodo, the Federation, the Aeoneonatrix, and the Sindar found themselves fighting tooth and nail repel the Dominatus.
Concurrently, the Tyranny swept like wildfire across the galaxies, gaining territories in Andromeda, Cyrannus, Borealis, among others. It stomped out and enslaved many civilizations too weak to resist their new Mark 2 expansion fleets.
Attero Dominatus Edit
Main page: Attero Dominatus
To Drodo strategists, it seemed for the longest time that the war with the Tyranny would be lost. The massive behemoth had managed to acquire a million systems within the First Gigaquadrent in a few months and it seemed like there was nothing to stop it. However, on December 21, 2791, the Tyranny's main AI malfunctioned after having been damaged by the DCP. The error caused a cascading failure of all of the Tyranny's slave control chips, spawning a massive Tyranny-wide slave revolt that even it was unprepared to deal with.
The Tyranny's slave-dependent industry quickly ground to a halt, stranding entire fleets without hope for resupply or reinforcements. The Drodo, taking advantage of the chaos, managed to drive out the Dominatus from their territory and quickly lashed out. They swept into Tyranny space and aided former slaves to free themselves from their Dominatus overlords. They only managed to get so far and eventually encountered the Dominatus pacifying legions headed in the other direction. With neither force willing to take risks or move any further, a stalemate ensued. Both sides dug in, and for the greater part of the beginning of 2792, the lines remained somewhat stationary with a few planets occasionally changing hands.
After having fought alongside one another for several months, the Drodo Empire and the United Free Peoples Coalition prepared in December of 2792 to sign a formal alliance that would bind together in solidarity the powers of the Katar Sector against the Drakodominatus Tyranny. Knowing it would spell doom for the Dominatus forces in Katar, Dominatus commander Mortrig Malevon enacted a daring plan to prevent the alliance, leading to the Tasan Crisis. Malevon used his shapeshifting spies to manipulate dissent within the People's Liberation Army Expeditionary Force, with the resulting uprising nearly killing the Katarian leaders. Concurrently, the Mardor Empire and Grand Tarkan Empire launched an invasion of Delcath, leading to defeat of the Mardor and the Tarkan conquest of the Miperiors. Despite this on December 31st, 2792 the nations of Katar gathered to form the Katar Sector Alliance.
After Etzan V'klor killed his father and claimed the Tarkan throne, the Empire proposed a truce to defeat the Tyranny. With the Dominatus becoming increasingly dedicated to their fight against the Delpha Coalition of Planets and their Delcath front undefended, Katarian forces overran the undefened Dominatus worlds in lower Katar. After pushing the Dominatus out of the sector the Katar Sector Alliance declared victory on December 31st 2793.
Lightning War Edit
Main page: Lightning War
First Colonial Age Edit
Gigaquadrantic Conflicts Edit
Political Divisions Edit
A sub-sector of many small, unadvanced empires with a bloody history of war and conquest. Delcath had long been ravaged by the genocidal Mardor and Gargator empires, guarded by the "Protectors" and their successors the Aeoneonatrix prior to their disappearance during the Lightning War. Along with the defeat of the Mardor during Attero Dominatus and the Gargator in the Transwarp War, Delcath now finally lies in a relative peace.
These conditions paved the way for the rise of the Farengeto Republic, and with the formation of the Farengeto Trade Coalition Farengeto now holds a hegemony over most of the subsector.
The Farengeto Republic is a Confederate Republic located primarily in the Delcath Subsector, with territories across the Katar Sector and in the Bunsen Galaxy and Quadrant 82. The Republic is a diverse nation home to dozens of species and an influence spanning hundreds of light years. Formed through a union of empires in 2783, the Republic truly established itself ten years later during Attero Dominatus, setting events into motion which would grow Farengeto into one of greatest powers in the sector.
Official Name: Gargator Republic
Size: ~600 colonies
Tier Level: 4.1
Government: Farengeto Senate
Protectorate of the Katar Sector Alliance
Once a genocidal empire of Spodists, following its defeat in the Transwarp War the Gargator Empire is now a territory of the Farengeto Republic. The loss of their homeworld and its political and spiritual leadership has shaken the Gargator, and much of the population has abandoned the old faith, instead embracing a reformed Spodism or giving up their faith entirely.
Formerly an influential power in Delcath, the Mardor Empire has been reduced to a dominion of 400 systems under occupation by the Katar Sector Alliance.
Official Name: Former Mardor Territories
Creator: Shared between Charles Murray, Aeoneonatrix, and The Buldier
Size: ~710 Systems

Mandate of the Katar Sector Alliance
The Former Mardor Territories was founded after the destruction of the Mardor Empire, made up of all the different species which used to be under the heel of the Mardor. It is currently a Mandate under the Katar Sector Alliance, and is thus governed directly by it.
Official Name: Miperior-Amphibibot Coalition

Leader(s): Gmfk the Great and A-000001-M1
Member of the Katar Sector Alliance
- Currently none
Created in the aftermath of the Lightning War and collapse of Tarkan rule, the formerly occupied Miperiors Empire finally merged with their creations, the likewise liberated Amphibibot Colective. Well within the Faregeto sphere of influence, the Coalition had recently expanded beyond the Katar sector in search of their old allies, the Aeoneonatrix. Upon founding them in the Andromeda Galaxy, their capital mas moved thereforth as the Coalition slowly began to walk it's own path.
The Miperiors are a highly intelligent and very creative race. They can accomplish great feats of engineering and dexterity. Despite their empire's relatively small size, their vast array of technology, agility, and efficiency make them difficult enemies. Their trading with the Aeoneonatrix has both helped them protect others as well as allowing themselves to study Protector technology and thus benefit in research and production. The Amphibibot Collective, meanwhile, is a collective of robots that were initially made to be a companion robot or servant robot, but crashed in a planet while being delivered, only surviving from the built-in AI contained within the ship.
Both sides retain their own government for the moment, though they are increasingly becoming more integrated with one another.

Bordering Delcath, Varapha looks extremely similar to it's neighbor, to the point some these two are often considered one by extra-unviversal empires. However one thing set it apart from Delcath: it's huge biodiversity, with leads to the fact that many empires modify this native wildlife for their own uses. It also seems to have small areas of fluidic space in it, with contains many unique, spaceborn lifeforms.
The normally withdrawn Nakeimato, they are natives to the Katar sector and value nature highly. The Nakeimato are notable for their slime creations and army animals created themselves. They are also noted for their continuing research on planet restoration and healing. Once a protectorate of the Waptoria Alliance of Species, they defend nature and their sanctums fiercely. After the Waptorian exodus, the Scientific Combine of Nakeimato re-alligned themselves with the Farengeto Republic and was given important positions within the Katar Sector Alliance. However, following the Lightning War, the Farengeto would begin to administer Nakeimato territories in Lower Katar while the Nakeimato still lay claim to them, resulting in a souring of relations between the two states as the Combine once again found itself in the Waptorian sphere of influence.
Official Name: The Waptoria Alliance of Species
Size: Extragalactic, 960 colonies in sector
Tier Level: 2
Military: Biotic Military
Government: Cellular Consensus Democracy
Leader: Decentralised leadership
Bordering the Scientistic Combine of Nakeimato, the Waptoria Alliance of Species are currently the only active empire in the entire Katar Sector. Ecologists dedicated to the preservation of life anywhere in the universe, no matter how outlandish, the Waptoria is responsible for much of the biodiversity in the sector, the maintenance of which they later handed over to the Scientific Combine of Nakeimato, whom they saw as worthy sucessors. The Waptoria shielded the early Combine from harm and stimulated the development of their organic technology, of which the Waptoria themselves are masters, though compared to the Combine the Waptoria generally tend to be less withdrawn and more open to ourside sources. The Katarian Nerve, however, is the exception.
Once banished from the sector, de jure so they could have a greater chance to fight the Drakodominatus Tyranny at home but de facto because they refused to move their administrative capital to the Katar Sector and commit the bulk of their forces to fight the Tyranny there, the Waptoria returned after the general collapse of the Katar Sector Alliance. That these colonists returned when the KSA was in shambles no is accident but rather a statement; those who endure the longest will eventually be the last left standing. Restoring their old colonies and collectively renaming them the Reclamation Nerve, the Waptorians in Katar are unlike those in any other Nerves. Their history is one of strife and displacement, first to the Byzan Sector and the to Tyris Major. This installed in these individuals a rather burning desire to reclaim their old colonies in Katar and a somewhat unjustified resentment of the KSA as a whole, though they remain tight allies with the neightbouring Scientific Combime of Nakeimato.
Enemies: Currently none.
As a very traditional culture, the Maracai Triumvirate resembles early tribal societies in many ways. This does not contradict with their rapid technological development though, as knowledge plays a high role in their religion. Despite a brutal conflict with an alien force in the past, they are eager to find other sentient, space-faring civilisations, as long as they are "righteous".

The Szor Empire is the living epitome of the warrior archetype. They kill not for conquest, neither for wealth, nor for pride. War is used as a tool, a tool with widespread uses and end results. This is the wisdom that guides the Szor Empire: most problems can be solved with war, but not all wars have death.
However, they seek others to aid them to further their Cause. The Szors understand that alone, weakness ensues, but united, strength grows.
