Star System:HD 191612
Coordinates:-6375.16 / 138.906 / 1909.44
Sol Distance: 6,656.42 ly
Region:Inner Orion Spur
Category:Stellar Features


HD 191612 is the only known system with an F-class supergiant star that's in a planetary orbit around another star.


Located in the Western portion of the Inner Orion Spur, HD 191612 appears to be an ordinary O-class star when viewed on the galaxy map. However, visitors to the star will be amazed to find something unique: a 45 solar radii F-class supergiant, designated HD 191612 9, is in a planetary orbit. As of 3308/10/17, this is the only known case where an F-class supergiant is in a planetary orbit.

Because of this orbital configuration, HD 191612 9 is not included in the standard exploration data set that every member of the Pilot's Federation receives from Universal Cartographics, despite the fact that the star is not only three times the radius of its parent star, but it's more luminous as well.

As the F-class supergiant is in a planetary orbit of the O-class star, it is essentially "chained" to it.

Visitors will also find Prasinum Bioluminescent Anemones on several landable bodies in the system.
