Zulu Sector

The old Dynatic Mapping Corps system of mapping the galaxy used rectangular coordinates to locate star systems. To make it easier, they subdivided their map of the galaxy into rectangular sectors, and assigned a letter, normally represented using a phonetic alphabet, to each sector. The sector containing Dynatic's principle system Sporoot was given the letter Z, hence it became known through its Unilang translation as the Zulu Sector.

Although more practical coordinate systems are now used in space navigation, the old sector names and boundaries have stuck.
