The First Survey was an Imperial survey.[1]


The First Survey produced charts which included Belial in the Eye of Terror, marked as Forbidden under the interdict of the Ecclesiarchy.[1]



  • The next paragraph in Farseer (Novel) mentions "the Great Crusade and the Age of Exploration, when the ships of the Navigator Houses had surveyed the systems that were to become part of the Imperium of Man."[1]
  • However, the mention of the Ecclesiarchy in the First Survey charts implies that it must have been carried out during M32 at the earliest, when the Ecclesiarchy was formed
  • The name may be a reference to the First Survey of the Third Imperium in the Traveller game universe
