X=Zhodani Way Station
Z=Zhodani naval bases

A way station, unlike the old Imperial equivalent, is a base that facilitates fleet communications, by assisting naval couriers, and doesn't actually have any repair or basing capabilities for line fleet units. A Zhodani Depot is the same as the Imperial Depot.

Massina Subsector:

The 1116 population of the sector is 39.6 billion, primarily concentrated on Stablstiaiql (2501) and Kloiabr (2602). The 1202 population is estimated to be around 100.4 billion, and shows where the greatest effect of the Zhodani Exodus is evident. Nearly all of this increase has occured on the two high population worlds in the subsector, and has severely strained their resources. This is particularly true of Sablstiaql, whose arcologies have been driven to their design limits by the unforeseen and unplanned expansion.

Massina Subsector is defended by the Zhodani 21st Fleet from its headquarters at Pliakrdla (2905). The 21st Fleet was engaged in fighting in Regina and Jewell Subsectors, and suffered severe losses against the Imperial 213th Fleet when the Siege of Efate was lifted. Much of its equipment and manpower were in a stage of reorganisation just prior to the Exodus, and the massive outflows of people had caught it at a vulnerable juncture.

While Massina had considerable economic capacity of its own, it was mostly in support of efforts in neighboring Zdiadlevepra (Ziafrplians P) Subsector. The two main industrial powerhouses of the subsector (Stablstiaiql and Kloiabr) are really part of the industrial and commercial community of Zdiadlevepra subsector, and it is here they send most of their exports. Kloiabr was the main power, in spite of being dominated by Zhebronzebl (2505), and its tax base was used to fund the subsectors basic services and military bases.

Self-sufficiency was never an option, as its proximity to the Third Imperium made the Consulate reluctant to place too much investment in a region only to see it destroyed or captured by its enemies. So in spite of its potential, the subsector was fairly sleepy in comparison to its neighbors in Ziafrplians. The only indication that things were not the same here was the legal requirement of armament on most civilian shipping. While Imperial raiders rarely (if ever) made here or in Zdiadlevepra (where the same requirement was in force) the presence of these weapons might have acted as a deterrent against such an eventuality. The requirement was scrapped in the wake of the Collapse, but many older vessels never had their armaments removed, and continue to mount them as the walls crumble down all around the Consulate.

Iasha (3204) Iasha has become one of the most critical worlds in all of Charted Space. The system is an important connecter with nearby Cronor, and a massive number of refugee transports pass through its starport. The local port has been jammed to overflowing, and the local staff and supporting population are overworked and fatigued. An endless line of ships circle above the world, waiting to refuel or attain maintenance. The ports normal clientele have departed elsewhere, and few of the refugee ships have sufficient money to buy needed fuel and services, thereby threatening the port with bankruptcy. The portmaster has threatened to close the port, but has been dissuaded by armed refugee ships. But there are rumors that the 12th Fleet (Cronor) has been talked into stationing a garrison on the world in support of its beleagured sister fleet, and that closure is only a few weeks of months away.
