The map

Could someone update the map on the Large Magellanic Cloud page to show the Zi'vani and maybe the Sectus?

What did you have in mind for sector names?

Well, one thing to do would be to make it Greek letters, but where's the originality there, hmm? It really depends on how many sectors there are. If it's four, we could do seasons, or the classical elements. We could name them for their history or inhabitants, e.g. the Zi'vani Sector or the Imperial Sector, or perhaps the Harvested Sector. Or we could just think up completely random, nonsensical names from bizarre alien languages that nobody on this wiki has ever heard. The possibilities are beyond count. So, how many sectors do you want, four or five? That's a good place to start as any.

I would recommend going with five sectors - four outer ones and one in the middle.

As for the names, each galaxy so far as its own unique way of naming. The Andromeda Galaxy goes by either made-up names or real world languages based in Asia and Africa. The Milky Way uses plain English, Greek or Latin.

I think the political status would be something unique. What do you think of these for the sector names:

  • Zi'vani Sector - Where the Zi'vani have charted as near-future targets of exploration and colonization.
  • Imperial Sector - A heavily colonized region under the influence of a powerful empire
  • Harvested Sector - A region that shows evidence of a past civilization that set up Dyson spheres and strip mines
  • Central Sector - The middle sector
  • Wild Sector - A largely unexplored region

Here's what the map ended up looking like.

Fantastic!

By "imperial," I meant the former Zi'vani empire, and the Harvested Sector was supposed to be the one where the Sectus are located.

Do you want the Zi'vani sector to be renamed then?

Well, I suppose the Zi'vani would live in the Imperial Sector, so yes, change it please. Rename the Imperial Sector to the Colonial Sector, as it's history has been shaped a lot by Zi'vani colonization and sometimes conquest. The Harvested Sector is fine, as that's what the Sectus do - harvest resources.
