Civilians

Civilian Commanders

Roman Lynch - Roman Lynch is easily the most powerful man in Gemini Sector outside of the Confederation Navy. His organization operates in a manner very similar to the Mafia of old, supporting everything from protection rackets to outright piracy. There are few Gemini Sector politicians who are not in his pocket, and his enemies have a way of disappearing without word. He has, however, never been officially charged with any crime. His power had begun to decline shortly before the Kilrathi invasion, with the law enforcement efforts of Admiral Mallory. He was, however, responsible for hiring a large number of the privateers who assisted in the defense of New Constantinople. The Kilrathi, after all, are even less tolerant of his brand of business.

Governor Menesch - Governor Menesch has been the civilian authority in charge of Gemini Sector for nearly sixteen years. Under his administration, business in the sector has grown and thrived… as has corruption and organized crime. There is little doubt that Governor Menesch's pockets are lined with Roman Lynch's money, however it is a fact rarely spoken of openly. The Kilrathi invasion has been nothing short of a disaster for Governor Menesch, with questions regarding misappropriated funds for local defenses beginning to come to light as well as a tremendous loss of influence with over half the worlds in his jurisdiction now on the wrong side of the battle lines.

Tayla - Known only by her first name, Tayla is perhaps the most influential pirate leader left alive in Gemini Sector. A relatively recent addition to the Gemini Sector's list of predators, Tayla's operation appears to have been spared largely by the fortunes of geography. Her newfound prominence is a mixed blessing… bringing with it a substantial increase in both opportunity and Navy attention. Though sometimes employed by Roman Lynch to assist in his operations, Tayla holds no loyalty to him and is one of the few businesspeople of any sort in Gemini willing to openly defy his demands.

Factions

Pirates - Drawn to the sector by the lure of lightly-defended resource-rich space, piracy was once the Confederation's top concern within Gemini. Operating from bases scattered throughout the quadrant, pirates attack civilian shipping (And at times even raid fixed installations) to acquire goods, as well as control the local distribution of drugs and other illicit goods. Though several dedicated efforts have been made to eliminate piracy within the sector, the pirate presence in Gemini is still substantial… with rumors of clandestine support from corrupt officials frequently bubbling to the surface. The Kilrathi invasion has drawn attention away from anti-piracy efforts, however, to focus on combating the Kilrathi. It has also left Gemini's pirates with a choice: To support the Confederation's efforts against an even less forgiving enemy, or to capitalize on the chaos.

Church of Man - Commonly referred to by the derisive slang term "Retros", the Church of Man is an anti-technology religious cult. Their militant anti-technology stance has earned them the enmity of nearly every other faction in Gemini, however they have managed to keep their base of operations a well-guarded secret. A certain degree of hypocrisy is evident in the Church's operations, using starfighters and high-technology terrorism to advance their goals of 'liberating' humanity from its technological 'encumberances'.

Mafia - Nowhere in the Confederation is crime as organized as it is in Gemini. Headed by crime boss Roman Lynch, organized crime in Gemini sector is entwined in the business, political, and social life of the sector to a degree that seperation may prove to be impossible. Fierecly opposed by Admiral Mallory, new Confederation leadership in Gemini has thawed relations between Confed and Gemini's illegitimate businessmen somewhat. Their support may prove critical to Confederation efforts in the sector, however distasteful.
