The Ark Reach Cluster was a group of binary stars discovered by the 47th Expeditionary fleet during the Great Crusade. It contained 6 systems linked together by trade and mutually supported defence networks. The empires all stemed from a highly diverse genetic baseline far removed from the typical Human genome.[1b]

The planetary governments rejected an offer of joining the Imperium and were thus gained through wars of compliance. The first 4 systems fell to the 47th Expedition including the Word Bearers and Space Wolves Legions. The fifth and sixth world, Shrike, included the assistance of the Thousand Sons.[1a][1b]
