The Pocket is a star cluster/nebula near the "corner" of the Crux Arm nicknamed "the Elbow."
It lies halfway between the elbow and the Carina Arm, a central location for trade routes through the inhabited half of the galaxy.
The CONSORTIUM (TCON) took defacto ownership of the nebula/starcluster known as "The Pocket." TCON makes their Headquarters and home there. Therefore The Pocket is home to some of the finest crafted goods in the galaxy.
TCON set up a massive trade station in deep space within one jump of the nebula. The multiple ryanite ring wormhole generators there have enabled Consortia Station to become one of the highest traffic nodes of transit through the galaxy. Thus TCON merchants capture a healthy fraction of galactic trade and profits.
