Enigma

Enigma Sector is a space sector claimed both by the Terran Confederation and the Kilrathi Empire.

Astrographically it borders Sol and Epsilon Sectors.

Before the Pilgrim War the Sector had many Human colonies. Sung Datasystems supplied many colonies in Enigma and Argent Sectors.[1]

Enigma had a unique property: one could traverse the whole Sector in a single jump.[2] Confed astrophysicists suspected this was possible thanks to the black hole in Enigma system. The Sector thus had a tremendous strategic significance during the Kilrathi War, since it would allow the Confed to outmaneuver the Kilrathi and access adjacent Sectors; or it would allow the Kilrathi to access Earth and the Human homeworlds.[3]

Around the time of the Operation: Crusade, after the failed Sivar-Eshrad, Kilrathi encroached into the human-controlled areas of Enigma Sector, and the Confed concentrated their troops there.[4]

Systems in the Sector included:
