Celestial Information

  • Distance from Sol: 101 lyrs, 31 par
  • Type of System: Singular
  • Color: K5-Red Giant
  • Right Ascension: 17h 56m 36.4s
  • Declination: +51° 29' 20"

Important Events

  • Gamma Draconis is a very interesting system, for many reason. First, it doesn't have a planetary system, and no viable resources, which is why, aside from a brief visit by the GTSC Erikson, it has been left virtually untouched by the GTVA. Secondly, it harbours a subspace portal, designated Knossos, which is believed to be an Ancient device, used to stabilise jump nodes that are, in their natural form, too unstable to travel. This particular portal leads into a distant nebula, which is being used as a staging area by the Shivans.
