    Reft Sector - Credits
    ---------------------
    
    The Reft Sector data was ftped from Sunbane.
    
    Similar data seems to have been published in issue 20 of
    The Travellers' Digest put out by Digest Group Publications
    in July of 1990. The people involved in the Trojan Reach
    write-up from that issue were James Holden, John Meyers,
    and Mike Mikesh.
    
    Christopher Thrash  wrote up some brief
    world descriptions for the Islands clusters (in the Old
    Islands & New Islands subsectors). These write-ups are
    based on material published in Supplement 5, Trillion
    Credit Squadron, p. 40-47. The descriptions themselves
    are all quotes from the supplement, with three exceptions:  
    (1) some minor rephrasing and repeating so the quotes make
    sense out of context, (2) a few dates that are conjectural
    (the founding of Esperanza, for example) but pretty
    conservatively extrapolated from known data, and (3) the
    definitions for the world names (Chris researched these
    with help from the TML).
    
    


    Note on the Islands Clusters

    Date: Fri, 08 May 1998 16:21:08 -0600
    From: Christopher Thrash 
    Subject: Galactic Submission
    
    Jim:
    
    I've downloaded your Galactic program and started to implement it
    to keep track of my Traveller campaign.  What a wonderful system!
    Thanks for making it available.
    
    In return, I'd like to pass along some descriptive information to
    add to your files.  My campaign is set in the Islands Clusters -
    Old Islands and New Islands Subsectors (J and K), Reft Sector. 
    It is based on material published in Supplement 5, Trillion
    Credit Squadron, p. 40-47.  They properly belong to the
    classic\reft\loc directory.
    
    The descriptions themselves are all quotes from the supplement,
    with three exceptions:  
    
    (1) some minor rephrasing and repeating to have the quotes make
    sense out of context, 
    
    (2) one or two dates that are conjectural (the founding of
    Esperanza, for example) but pretty conservatively extrapolated
    from known data, and 
    
    (3) the definitions for the world names.  These last I researched
    myself, with help from the TML - any flaws, however, are my own.
    
    The details in your file for these subsectors come from Trillion
    Credit Squadron (CT), by way of The Regency Sourcebook (TNE). 
    The UWPs are valid for 1106-1117 Imperial; the PBG extensions
    come from The Regency Sourcebook, but directly contradict
    material from the original (e.g., Zufluct is listed in TCS with
    planetoid belts; in TRS and your data the value for "B" is 0).
    
    I'll send along some more data as I get the opportunity; this was
    simply what I already had on hand, plus some minor reformatting.
    
    Cheers,
