Lost Souls 2 Act 1 – Waypoint 7

Voqua AA-A h177

System name

Voqua AA-A h177

Star AB 7

Distance to waypoint

5,310.6LY

 

Description

This system is another stellar phenomenon in the same vein as the Collection of Wonders. In this system are no fewer than 4 black holes, a ringed neutron star and a ringed K-class star. The rings of the K-class star are also rare: they start at a distance of just over 40ls away from the star itself, and are so fine that they are not visible from super cruise.

Expedition Base Camp

For this waypoint there will be no planetary base camp. Instead, we are encouraging commanders to meet up within the rings of the neutron star –Voqua AA-A h177 AB 7

POI’s Along the Way

Blue Ink in Pink -A beautiful little nebula with a black hole in its heart. Looking at it from the right angle it looks like a few droplets of blue ink had just been dropped into pink ink and are now blossoming and slowly disipating and mixing with the pink. Frozen in eternity at just the right moment. More surprising is that this little gem lies on the way from Sol to the Colonia domain and was only ever visited by two comanders before.

Diamond Necklace – Not far off of the Colonia connection highway, the fifth body of this septuple system wears an ornate and valuable necklace. On the necklace are two white pearls (Class II Giants), a navy blue sapphire (WWTFC), and two gorgeous diamonds (ELW’s). A truly rare combination of two ELW moons in the same system, with one of the ELWs also being ringed (source).

Cat’s Perch Nebula – A fairly large nebula located approximately 3,000 LYs above the Colonia Corridor. It is one of the nebulae situated highest above the galactic plane and thus offers a commanding view of the milky way. Easy to reach but otherwise rather barren.

Colonia Connection Highway

Vihara Gate in the Kashyapa system is the nearest station, situated just over 894y from the waypoint system.

Blua Hypa Glowing Green Giant

System name

Blua Hypa HT-F d12-1226

Planet 1

Distance to waypoint

2,282.4LY

Description

There is a special subvariety of life-bearing gas giant that is particularly rare, and interesting: they glow green. Bright green. Radioactive, fluorescent green, bright enough to be seen from space. They are the Glowing Green Giants (GGGs).

One can speculate about the cause. As this fluorescent green colouration only ever occurs on life-bearing worlds, the presence of life must be a causal factor. But since the vast majority of life-bearing worlds are not fluorescent green in colour, it is not merely the presence of microscopic airborne lifeforms that is the causal factor. Unfortunately, the numbers of such worlds that have been fully documented is still staggeringly low: only five of then have been reported on publicly-available sources to date. Further examples will be required for any statistically significant study as to the collective origins of this peculiar phenomenon.

Expedition Base Camp

The base camp for this waypoint will be Surface signal: Geological (1) on planet 1. Be warned – this planet has a gravity of 1.57G – so be careful on your descent!

POI’s Along the Way

The Crux – A tight binary pair of pulsars with a third pulsar also, in a tight orbit with jets point perpendicularly to the binary pair. When viewed from a particular angle it looks like a cross, hence the name “The Crux.”

Twilight Paradise – An earth-like moon situated on the far orbit of the neutron star. Lying in eternal nightfall after the death of the parent star, it reminds us of the fragility of our mother Earth.

Colonia Connection Highway

Caravanserai in the Gandharvi system is the nearest station, situated almost 1,327ly from the waypoint Base Camp.

Vostok-1 Nebula

System name

Gru Hypue CX-J c9-1

Planet ABCD 1 c

Distance to waypoint

3,072.8LY

Description

This red and pinkish nebula, situated in the Heart of the Sagittarri Conflux, sits around 1,000 LYs below the galactic plane.

The nebula is quite dense in places but its lower reaches become extremely diffuse.

The Vostok Nebula was named in honour of the first spaceflight of the Vostok programme and the first manned spaceflight in history. The Vostok 3KA space capsule was launched on April 12, 1961 from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Soviet Union, Earth, with Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, making him the first human to cross into outer space.

Expedition Base Camp

The base camp for this waypoint will be Surface signal: Geological (37) on planet ABCD 1 c.

POI’s Along the Way

Emain Macha – A complete galactic anomaly – a binary pair of ringed Earth-Like Worlds (Fedach and Fomfor), orbiting a neutron star.

Dragon’s Tail Nebula – Located about 1000 Ly to the galactic west of the Dragon’s Head Nebula, this nebula is of similar size and color, making it a “tail” to the Dragon. Many white dwarf and neutron stars can be found in and near the nebula. A black hole in the reference system provides a unique view of the nebula through the optical lensing effect.

Ewoks Rest – a system containing not one, but two of the rarest sites in the galaxy: an ELW moon, and an ammonia moon.

Gagarin Gate is situated just over 38ly from the waypoint Base Camp.

Guardian ruins - Skaudai sites

System name

Skaudai AM-B d14-138

Planet AB 7 A

Distance to waypoint

2,991.6LY

Description

This system contains the first Guardian ruins discovered in the Scutum-Sagittarii Conflux.

Guardian history tells of “Exiles”, who were banished when religious orders took over their society. The unexpected discovery of the ruins in the Skaudai sector has lead to speculation among xenohistorians as to wether these out of the way locations could be the final resting place of these exiles (source).

Expedition Base Camp

The base camp for this waypoint will be the Guardian Ruins Site 68.

POI’s Along the Way

Rusty Net – A visually striking planetary nebula along the Colonia Connection Highway. The neutron star at its center provides a welcome boost to long-distance travel, but taking a pause from your journey to admire the view is well worth it. The deep-red stellar remnant, aptly named “The Rusty Net,” has caught within it a G-class secondary with two life-bearing water worlds and two rocky terraformables.

Ellaisms Remnant – A typical double-lobed blue planetary nebula surrounding a neutron star, the result of a supernova approx. 296 million years ago. Life has managed to survive through this cataclysm; the fourth planet is a life-filled water world.

Collection of Wonders – One of the most extraordinary systems in the entire galaxy. It contains two black holes, a ringed M-class star, a ringed white dwarf, and a ringed neutron star. The M-class star is one of the largest known stellar bodies containing a ring system. A tourist beacon is set up near the M-class star.

Galactic Helium Reserve – A twin Herbig Ae/Be system that contains a record 23 Helium-rich gas giants. As of 09/02/2019 this is the single largest known collection of helium-rich gas giants. Discovered by The Fatherhood’s very own Leesti.

Conflux Abandoned Settlements

Distance to waypoint

3,713.0LY

Description

In late 3302, Alessia Verdi, a commander associated with the enigmatic CMDR Salomé, set up an exploration community goal on behalf of the Children of Raxxla. The goal was to retrieve and analyze as much survey data as possible from three specific regions. Those regions being the Formidine Rift, The Scutum-Sagittarii Conflux, and Hawking’s Gap (Lin-Shu Hollow).

On analysis of the data, CoR Intel discovered the location of several navigational beacons in each region, that in turn provided the planetary location of several settlements.

These settlements turned out to be staging posts for a mysterious ‘Dynasty Expedition’ that had traversed the location three decades earlier and had set up bases there.

Expedition Base Camp

The base camp for this waypoint will be the Conflux Beta Site.

POI’s Along the Way

Huygens’ Ringworld – an Icy Planet located in outer ring of Class 1 Gas Giant, with deep canyons, amazing views, and plenty of geological points in the form of water geysers.

NGC 6629 – this nebula’s white core is a Wolf-Rayet star that is surround by a halo of blue and purple nebular gas. A solitary Class III gas giant orbits the star at a distance of over 11,000 light seconds.

Eagle Nebula – a small-medium sized nebula situated within the Sagittarius arm, approx. 7,000 LYs from Sol. The Eagle Nebula contains scores of tightly packed young F5 class stars, making it a hotbed of scientific research for short-range exploration vessels.

Al-Qūhī Oasis -Not only does this system feature a rare triplet of earth like worlds, but the three planets orbit close enough to be mutually tidally locked, and all three skirt the lower limits of mass and temperature for Earth-like habitability.
