40 or 55?[edit]

Some maps show Brocchi's as having 40 systems in the cluster, while some maps (2750 until 2822) show it having 55. -Volt (talk) 02:54, 8 September 2014 (PDT)

Think the 2750-2822 maps reflect the Catalyst position that the number for clusters represents inhabited planets/systems. This doesn't jive with the detail in Historical: Reunification War about the Badlands Cluster having one inhabited world in the text, but a much higher number on maps, and I pointed this out, but... *shrugs* Most reasonable explanation is that in light of the new position, the drop in numbers represents worlds being abandoned/depopulated.

quite possible, though I find it conveniently lazy how the cluster started with 40 systems, goes up to 55 during the height of the star league, and then back down to 40 around the time of the succession wars. Interesting to see what the number of systems appear if and when Handbook: House Kurita gets published and we see the 2571 - 3067 sectional maps. At least, I hope the book comes with that. -Volt (talk) 21:37, 9 September 2014 (PDT)
