No, from what I understand Sergyar is on one of the routes out of the
Kormarr Nexus. It has quite a few, hence it's called a nexus.
What made Sergyar special is that it contains a link back to Escobar,
and into the "central" or older systems, like Beta Colony and Earth.
Basically Sergyar provided a short cut to the core systems of human
space, where as previously a route via loads of other systems was
required to make the same journey.
Think of sergyar like a side street allows you to cut a corner, and
save you lots of travel time and distance.
