Conflux Abandoned Settlements
Distance to waypoint
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.
