The Minos Cluster was a star cluster within the Galactic Empire. During the time of Zare Leonis's attendance at the Empire's officers academy on the planet Arkanis, this cluster was having much trouble with smugglers and crime rings. Colonel Julyan lectured students in his Strategy and Tactics class regarding events in this sector. Thanks to the class-three intel/courier clearance granted to them, cadets at the academy could access real-time data on the Empire's activities in the cluster in regards to fleet movements, informants' tips, arrest records and more. Leonis, who was secretly only attending the academy with the intention of rescuing his sister, nevertheless found the information fascinating.
