OK, here are the subsectors, with letters in them to help group them. The concept is that a major polity usually names its own region of space. If it is sufficiently important, it will retain that name (or names) after it is absorbed into a larger polity. So, the subsectors are grouped by letters to help you see where I thought the dividing lines would be. Some subsectors have two sets of IDs. These would be spots where both groups would have their own naming convention.

The single letters have no specific meaning, except to group the subsectors. The two-letter IDs mean the following:
Gk - Greek names (mostly done, and sector D4 is already named: Agrotikospiti)
Sb - Serbo-Croatian
Am - American (as in the New World, though mostly North American for subsector names) (Also, sector E4 is already named: Columbia)
As - Aslan (I can't leave out the Bushido kitties!)
Zo - Zhodani, though the polity will not be Zhodani as we know them - the names are good stuff, though
The empty spots are for minor races/cultures. (Though the two between the Am and Zo subsectors should be tough dudes.)
Edit: Changed K to "SAB", added SAB to list. end edit
SAB - Sumerian, Assyrian, Babylonian. (NO "Gozer".)
(The letter-number bit is the top-left corner of each sector.)

So, if you can, start coming up with names for the sectors/subsectors. Post them with the corresponding letter and sector ID, and any good info you like. [img]smile.gif[/img]

BTW, the Greek names I have already will not neccesarily be recognizable. I tweaked them a little after finding the words, as would naturally happen after a few thousand years. I will post the names for those subsectors later.
