The Demilitarized Zone (or DMZ for short) is the location that the player travels through in Everspace, which is located inside of Cluster 34. Many different factions, characters, and Extraplanetary Lifeforms can be found while traversing the DMZ. It is filled with debris and derelicts left over from the Colonial - Okkar War. Despite the limited Colonial presence in the DMZ (a likely requirement of the peace treaty), the Jump Gates they built are still active and can be used.

|Demilitarized Zone Entry|
[[File:]]Upon arrival in Cluster 34 in the early 31st Century (C.E. Sol), the Colonial Fleet's first encounter with the equally matched Okkar race proved disastrous, leading to all-out conflict and widespread mutual destruction. This put an abrupt halt to unchecked Colonial expansion for the first time since it began. The current uneasy pace is upheld by the imposition of a demilitarized zone between the two factions, administered and patrolled by the Okkar, the territory's prior claimants. Colonial mining operations have been allowed to continue as part of the arrangement.
