This is a "corrected" Darrian subsector. This is taken straight from GT:Behind the Claw (see below * for the exception), but I have taken the liberty to reduce things that "don't make sense". Obviously, what makes sense and doesn't make sense is a subjective matter, and I am sure there will be plenty for readers to take issue with. I have tried to keep the changes as simple as possible, but there are some pretty major ones in here. Again, like in the other subsector write ups, despite being based on the GTU and GURPS Traveller, the information is still presented in classic UWP format.
This version shows the Darrian Confederation to have been much more proactive in the affairs of its member worlds. While the worlds are still allowed to remain highly independent, the Confederation does not allow worlds to be so mismanaged that they hinder the Confederation as a whole. As such, one program the Confederation instituted very early on was one designed to keep all member worlds at a minimum interstellar level of technology. Obviously, there are exceptions for self-exclusion (e.g. Rorre), and more recent members can still lag (e.g. Cunnonic).
Another change was to correct obviously ridiculous things. Unless a world was bombed in the last five years or so, there is no way a hi-tech, high population world is going to have every starport on its surface consist of the equivalent of a slab of concrete and a mobile home. It may not have a shipyard, but it is going to have at least one decent quality starport, and likely have several of them. Also, the Darrian communication route (i.e. X-boat route) is extended to Entrope. (Technically Winston is not a stop, but it can't be drawn otherwise.)
Finally, a few other changes were made to make
the astrography less egregious. Obviously, there are limits to our knowledge,
and many wonderous things are possible, but I want to keep the ridiculous
things under control. All dinky worlds with real atmospheres have their
sizes increased to at least minimally support those atmospheres. All worlds
with better than a trace atmosphere with a white dwarf have the dwarf upgraded
to main sequence. The remaining white dwarf stars lose their classification.
Some other stellar data was also slightly modified to let the nicer worlds
actually be nice.
There are reports that the Darrian Confederation is working covertly on Uniqua to "liberate" it from Garoo, but there is no proof. The Confederation attributes the reports to "typical Garooan paranoia".
Once the Fifth Frontier War was over, and the Sword World threat was effectively removed, the Imperium returned the naval base on Nosea back to the Confederation.
The majority of the population of Roget are the decendants of mercenary Aslan who, while fully part of the Darrian Confederation, wish to maintain their cultural identity. The Aslan scattered elsewhere (Zamine, Engrange, Ektron, Cunnonic and Daryen) have mostly assimilated into Daryen culture. This assimilation is to the point that native Aslan would consider them full "barbarians" and refuse to deal with them. Interestingly, even though the Roget Aslan have gone to great lengths to maintain their culture, they have no problem dealing with any other Darrian Aslan, and are considered "other Aslan" by native Aslan as a result.
Mire, content with being the political epicenter of the Darrian Confederation, let their technological infrastructure lag the other primary shipbuilding planets. Recently, they have started to correct that, and, as a result, have recently been recognized with their first technology level increase in almost a thousand years.
Entrope has recovered well from his mishandling by the Sword Worlds. The popular dictator, a war hero who lead the coup that brought Entrope back to the Darrian Confederation, has finished the task of cleaning out Sword World sympathizers and is well along the path to reconstructing their economy. The fully functional starport is evidence that the hard work is paying off. (Note that the worlds of Entrope and Winston were swapped. The stars, populations, and names stayed, but the physical worlds were swapped.)
The stupid crap on Laberv was stomped, and the population reflects a recovery that is going pretty well.
Zamine still has its civil unrest problems going on, but some of the non-malcontent worlds support reasonable starports.
