It is also the brightest Navigational marker star in the sector. The only human habitable world in the Spica system is a Small Gas Giant moon named Farpost. Farpost was originally established as a Second Imperium Research Outpost. Term Tukera (2310) is the final corporate way station for Tukera Lines out of the core-Imperium en route to the Hive Federation. Cargos from the empire are tagged for final destination within the Federation. Cargos from the Federation are sorted and inspected for possible hazardous contents before being forwarded on to Core. The sole inhabitant of Liam (2002) is a human who welcomes any traveling visitors. His name - Liam. He never gives his surname and if asked, politely avoids the question. Given the opportunity, he will explain that he is a student of history, specifically the Imperia, generally all Human history. His tech 14 robotic staff operate a single starship berth (up to 600 tons) which will conduct maintenance if not already occupied. "This frees crews for conversation.", he says. The religous medical practitioners of Apollo (2401) are somewhat isolated from the systems in Spica by Jump-3 or Jump-4. They are Jump-2 from several systems in the Hinterworlds sector to coreward. The Apollonian culture is believed to be one of the few that reach so far into Terra's long history. The Gerontocracy of Padre (1906) is a medical/therapuetic colony for elderly humans requiring an extremely dry environment. Padre has no free-standing water, no permafrost, no below ground water sources. Special precautions are taken to prevent transvaporation of the colony's imported water supply to preserve the world's arrid state. The Nugent Republic (2010) has valuable crystalline resources that make it a worthwhile trading partner with Tukera Lines. Nominally, the bulk of Tukera's Highliner transports are filled with trade goods going to/from the Hive Federation. Nugentine crystals are no exception. The Hiver enclave at Abbott (2407) numbering nearly seven hundred thousand is not quite 1% of the population. Many of these Hivers are engaged in the Interface Sector-wide line which feeds the independent sphere of Spica sector and portions of the Hinterworlds into Star Patterns Trading within the Federation. Tentacular Lines is rumored to be a subsidiary of Star Patterns Trading or an operative arm of the Federation Development Agency. Hivers on Abbott dismiss these claims. (Good Place) (2109) is eight parsecs from the system in Three Spheres subsector known to be the homeworld of this minor alien race. The planet (2109) is nearly identical to the homeworld (1211). Tyrolia (2003) was named so for the dense population of minor aliens found there. Having no connection to the Earth Tirol, Terrans who first came here named it for the way the aliens learned to fly. As the Xoar have only instincts to follow, their first efforts are dangerous to witness at a close distance - hence, Tyros. The Xoar stand on average 30 meters in height and usually erect a membrane in the shape of an inverted parasol from their base. This membrane collects Solar energy used to power their entire metabolism. They process materials from the soil in which they are "planted". At times of maximum galactic magnetic intensity, if of sufficient maturity, they will launch into interplanetary space. For this reason, they seek out the low gravity, trace atmosphere worlds they inhabit. In space, they expand their membrane from the 100 meter maximum on planet to several kilometers and sail to the stars using solar wind to reach escape velocity.
The Spica Subsector contains 29 systems with a known population of 16.778 billion sapients. The highest population known is 7.32 billion at Tyrolia. The highest Tech Level known is F at Nugent and Term Tukera. The best Starports known are Type-A at Liam, Tyrolia, Nugent, Stewart, Apollo, Port Manatee, Mandayyay, and Abbott.
