The NGC 6842 planetary nebula, discovered in 1919 by American astronomer Heber D. Curtis, was one of the faintest nebulae included in the New General Catalogue, despite being located only 6,000 ly away from Sol.

Its centre is the CSI+29-19529 Wolf-Rayet star. Visiting Commanders will find two Y dwarf stars circling it, and two planets which have survived the death of the star. However, neither of those two bodies are landable: they are both hellish worlds with incredibly high surface temperatures and atmospheric pressure.
