"What is it with the Koprulu Sector, anyhow? It seems like every week there's another skirmish, insurgency, sortie, planned offensive, counter strike, police action, border conflict or plain old-fashioned war breaking out. While the chaos and anarchy are great for a spacefaring merchant vessel that's willing to transport certain cargo of questionable legality, I sometimes have to stop and wonder if this madness will ever end."- Norris Bailey reflects on the state of the Koprulu Sector(src)
The Koprulu sector—nicknamed the Terran Sector— is a sector in space colonized by terrans in the shadow of Protoss space. It is situated on the galactic fringe of the Milky Way, sixty thousand light years from Earth. During the Guild Wars, the sector was divided into at least five zones. Most of its planets are inhospitable. Still, the sector offers a vast range of foodstuffs.
War in the sector is a brutal affair. Life expectancy for terran soldiers once measured in mere seconds.
