The State of the Omega Sector (Y1 OS)
By the time it was cut off from the rest of the galaxy the population of the Omega Sector had grown to 800 million, mostly concentrated in large cities on the surface of New Coruscant. These colonists were shipped in from the thousands of worlds controlled by the Galactic Empire and are almost entirely human. Many are skilled workers employed by the system’s extensive manufacturing sector. Droid labor is also common, especially in agriculture and mining.
The New Coruscant system has 8 planets, 55 moons and 162 asteroids. The planets are loosely named after the planets of the original Coruscant system.
The research projects of the major industrial concerns have borne enough fruit to allow shipbuilding with all local materials, though on a small scale compared to the sorts of projects regularly conducted elsewhere in the Empire.
Sienar Fleet Systems is in the process of shaking down a small fleet of exploration craft equipped with special sensors and Rendili’s still mostly theoretical “jump” drive. The ships are built on identical hulls but the Astrogator class is intended to detect latent “jump” nodes which Rendili claims should connect New Coruscant to other nearby systems and the Prospector class will be able to scan the surface of planets for rich deposits of useful minerals. The goal of the project is to begin serious exploration and exploitation of the system and, hopefully, surrounding systems as well.

Meanwhile, Ardgartan and her sister ship Craithe have both been fully refitted with new locally produced equipment by Kuat Drive Yards. Their useless shield generators and a pair of twin laser turrets were stripped out to make room for the larger sorium burning engines and duranium hull plating. These two ships are the backbone of the sector’s small naval force.

Two squadrons of the Empire’s Raider class corvettes are in the process of being similarly refitted. Work on the 17th Raider Squadron (Blaster, Firewalker, Infiltrator and Slasher) has been completed while the 42nd remains in drydock at Kuat Drive Yards #2.

As no threats had been detected inside the sector and an Imperial blockade prevented entry, these ten ships were deemed a suitable system picket until larger warships could be produced at the local yards. Now that the rift has closed they are the only defense available.
Omega Sector Command is run by Admiral Wilburn Wildemuth and its operations are divided among four subgroups:
Exploration Command is run by Vice Admiral Lindsay Tomey who oversees the operations of the eight survey ships and is overall second in command of the Sector’s naval assets.
Industrial & Manufacturing Command under Rear Admiral Stefan Haehn manages the operations of the Worldshaper platforms and the new Sorium Fuel Refineries.
Logistics & Supply Command under Rear Admiral Deandre Holt is tasked with the movement of supplies, infrastructure and people via the Cargo, Tanker and Transport Flotillas
Sector Defense Force led by Rear Admiral Jeramy Noell is the combat arm of the sector fleet comprised of two elements:
- The 17th Raider Squadron under Commander Cheryl Bethune
- The Patrol Group under Captain Curt Bread
A complete listing of the naval forces follows:
New Coruscant 2x CP Tartan Omega Refit: Ardgartan, Craithe 4x CT Raider Omega Refit: Blaster, Firewalker, Infiltrator, Slasher 4x GSV Astrogator: Astrogator 001, Astrogator 002, Astrogator 003, Astrogator 004 4x GSV Prospector: Prospector 001, Prospector 002, Prospector 003, Prospector 004 3x FHB 100-4M 4x TS Worldshaper 2x CS Baleen-C 5x FT Baleen 2x TT Galleon 2x TG Fortitude 2x TK 10M
In addition to the naval assets, New Coruscant is home to a full Imperial Army Corps under the command of Major General Roscoe Vanluven. The formation comprises almost 40000 soldiers and their equipment but is intended more for population control than serious defense and lacks heavy offensive units like the fearsome Imperial walkers. They are joined by two battalions of Stormtroopers initially detached from Imperious.
