Maelstrom Sector

The Maelstrom Sector is a sector of space in the Alpha Quadrant of the Milky Way Galaxy. The region is highly inhospitable to life and is plagued with subspace rifts, quantum destabilization, and high radioactivity. The region is typically avoided; however, the Romulan Republic has recently begun colonizing the region as the new home of their civilization. The United Federation of Planets has also resumed operations in the area.

Noteworthy Species

A silicon based lifeform, the Kessok originated in the Maelstrom.
Formerly a slave race from the world Remus, the Remans are telepathic humanoids with a colorless, almost translucent skin. Incredibly resilient and strong, the Remans are highly affected by light. Several Remans escaped the destruction of their world and are aiding in the establishment of the Romulan Republic as equals.
From the now destroyed world of Romulus, the Romulans are an offshoot of the Vulcan race and are highly skilled at deception. Romulans are genetically and physically identical to Vulcans except for a cranial ridge that has evolved on their foreheads which can be offset by intricate tattooing - a sign of remembrance of their lost homeworld. The Romulans residing in the Maelstrom have annexed multiple star systems and formed the Romulan Republic to escape the Romulan Star Empire.
