Astrography of Dark Nebula Sector: The Aslan homeworld lies at the very edge of Aslan space, rather than in the middle of a sphere of influence as is more common with starfaring major races. (The Vilani spread mostly in one direction because of the limitations of jump-1 drive, but for most others, the stars were more evenly spread.) Most agree that this is because Aslan developed jump drive relatively late, and found that humans had already claimed most of the worlds to coreward and trailing of Kusyu.

It is noteworthy that in order to expand in the direction left open to them, Aslan had to develop jump-2 almost immediately after inventing jump drive. Many small clusters of Aslan worlds would be isolated with only jump-1 drive available. -dn TD 17
