The Solar System- a civilian sector- contains our planet earth, and the other planets and the asteroid belts. :)

Some new sector type for you to name, if you like to.

Industrial Sector
Style: Could imply centres low tech industrial activity with heavy impact on the galactic environment.
Possible Indicators: "Industrial", "Factories", "Scrapyard", "Waste Disposal", "Salvageyard", "Pollution", "Smog", "Dust", "Dust Cloud", "Radiation", "Acid", "Corrosion"
Examples (Custom):
<name>Industrial Zone s-572-u</name>
<name>Cevis Alpha [Acid Hazard!]</name>
<name>The Theta Smog Cloud</name>

Quarantined Sector (original concept by kartoFlane)
Style: Could reference disease and humanitarian crisis and the efforts to contain it.
Possible Indicators: "Quarantine", "Contained", "Aid", "Disease", "Plague", "Medical Emergency", "Health Crisis", "Distress"
Examples (Custom):
<name>Malis 9 [Quarantined]</name>
<name>Contained Plague Zone 27</name>
<name>Health Crisis at 0.218.85</name>

Pirate Home World Sector
Style: Could reference clear total outlaw dominance and illegal activities. Im actually unsure how to differentiate this one clearly from the normal pirate sector. But that's actually not that of a big deal...
Possible Indicators: "Pirate Base", "Gang", "Smuggling" ... well yeah, not many ideas here... specially as this should still name a region in space, not a interior cell in skyrim :|
Examples (Custom):
<name>Rak'ksaks Gang HQ</name>
<name>The Omicron Smuggler Zone</name>
<name>Pirate Base at 0.071.33</name>

AI Controlled Sectors
Style: Could reference dominance by artificial lifeforms, nano bot clouds, isolation and an unknown threat.
Possible Indicators: "AI", "Nano Cloud", "Entity", "Bot", "Net", "Hack"
Examples (Custom):
<name>The Alpha AI</name>
<name>319-k-PS-Golgons Nano Cloud</name>
<name>Theta 6 [Rouge AI Controlled]</name>

"Sector 51" (pretty much an FTL Area 51)

Back again to try my hand at coming up with some names for the new sector types:

Industrial Sector:
<name>The Forge Worlds</name>
<name>Manufactoria 17</name>

Quarantined Sector:
<name>[Outbreak in Progress]</name>
<name>The Festering Zone</name>

Pirate Home World Sector:
<name>The Inmates' Cove</name>
<name>Blackheart's Haven</name>
<name>The Lawless Reach</name>

AI Sector: (Not sure about these ones, but I like the idea of the AI either trying to disguise their presence or falsify the sector data)
<name>[Digital Interference]</name>
<name>S/af)e Z0n[e]</name>
<name>Z0lt4n H0mew0rld5</name> (And similar variations for the eNg1, R0(K, M4nt15, 51ug, etc...)

Anyway, I hope you find some of them useful!

This is all awesome work but one thing that messes with me is when names are too smiliar.
Like, if the name of a pirate is a Mantis name then it sounds like a mantis sector........
