    Barnacle Sites - the Pleiades (organicPOI), Pleiades Sector JC-U b3-2


The tourist beacon on planet 2 is inside a large steep sided crater that's more than 50 km across, which contains five Thargoid Barnacle sites.

This barnacle site is believed to be one of the abundant locations of the strange organic structures. The site was suggested by Commander Arcanonn.

The planet is host to 20 barnacle sites in total, and there are another 18 on planet 1.

The system was frequently used for harvesting Meta-Alloys until 3305, when the Barnacle sites in the Pleiades were depleted.

Galnet: Meta-Alloys Reportedly Growing Scarce

Galnet: Week in Review

Barnacles have since been discovered in well over 100 systems.

Canonn Research: Barnacles.

The 8 c moon is host to Bacterium Vesicula, Fonticulua Campestris and Electicae Radialem.
