Its an area of space, in a spherical form, that includes territories settled by Humans at a distance between 450 and 200 million light years more or less from Earth. It is formed by several galaxy clusters such as the Draco's Core Cluster, The Draco's Outer Cluster, the Ursa Major Cluster, the Ursa Minor Cluster, the Swift Cluster, the Telesian Cluster, etc... The central core of this space is the Lewis Galaxy and from it, human colonist expanded rapidly to unexplored and uninhabited nearby Galaxies, and thus creating the Herschel Space.
This region lies on the Constellation of Draco, Ursa Major and Ursa Minor. It is also expanding to close nearby areas such as the Hercules, Cygnus, Lyra, Böotes and Cepheus Constellations. All as seen from Earth.
The Herschel Space is one of the top most populated regions of Humanity, with one of the highest human densities in the Universe.
This space comprises the area of Human Colonization and Expansion of The Lewis Nations:
- The Empire of Mankind
- The Intergalactic Federation (previously known as the Lewis Federation)
- The Union
- The Plutocracy of Gish
- The United Alliance
- the Republic of Sion.
The territory of this nations of humanity forms the current Herschel Space and delimits its borders.
Some Alien species also live and/or are native to the Herschel space, most notably the Aldorians and the Krizik, but also the Murban, the Noraki, the Arati, the Emeren, the Assor, the Khlakun, the Shael, the Uring, the Koors, the Arong and the Yoldar, among others. Some migrant Alien species have made as well the Herschel Space, their home.
Some of the Nations that make up the Herschel Space alongside Human nations are:
- The Aldorian Dominium
- The Aldorian High Kingdom
- The Aldorian Hegemony
- The Aldorian League
- The Aldorian Assembly of Clans
- The Aldorian Confederacy
- The Aldorian Military Junta
- The Aldorian Shabada
- The Shael Hive
- The Krizik Stratocracy
- The Krizik Regime
- The Krizik Dominium
- The Krizik Warrior Assembly
- The Murban Directorate
- The Arati Clans
- The Noraki State
- The Khlakun Nation
The Herschel Council, is a government body, similar to The Intergalactic Council, to run internal affairs and aspects of the Herschel Space. This Council includes all The Lewis Nations as well as all the Alien Nations that live within. The Lewis Nations, have as well their own Council, The Lewis Council, that rules Human affairs alone on Herschel Space and the Talondra Assembly, that rules Aldorian affairs.
Most of the Human population came from the Milky Way, from Planet Anar, on five ships carrying 200 million people. Most of the inhabitants of the Herschel space are descendants of this pioneers. Although other significant amount of humans came later on as migrants from other territories. The first colonist travelled quite far from Confederacy territory, and settled this region of space, settling the Lewis Galaxy first and then expanding throughout nearby Galaxies. All this heavily humanly settled territory of space came to be known as Herschel, in honor and after the discoverer of many of the Galaxies of the region for mankind during the 18th century.
There are three nucleus of Human population on the Herschel Space. The Core Galaxies, the Ursa Major Galaxies and the Ursa Minor Galaxies. Galaxies with an * mark the Core Galaxies next to the Lewis Galaxy. Galaxies from Ursa Major are marked with a - and Galaxies of Ursa Minor use a / to be marked. Isolate Galaxies are marked with a ^ instead. The Galaxies that make up this space are:
