Torus Molluscs can be found here, and this sector produced glitches in the early years of exploration.

Notice: This POI shares the same star system with a prior existing entry in the Galactic Mapping Project (GMP). You can visit the original entry using the link below:

    Ovomly Sector (regional), Ovomly AA-A h22


The Ovomly sector in the Vulcan Gate region was at first notable for being inaccessible in the early days of exploration, when not only could frame shift drives not lock on to its systems, but querying their data from the galaxy map had also produced glitches in ship computers. However, once Universal Cartographics fixed the data corruption issue, the sector became accessible once again.
Subsequent explorers found no anomalies in the sector, and after the initial scouting, it attracted little attention.

Some years later, in 3305, the sector became an area of interest once again when unique Notable Stellar Phenomena were found there: Torus Molluscs, which are to date the only spaceborne life known to live in the vicinity of white dwarf stars.

These molluscs are quite small, and rather harmless. Instead of attacking any spacecraft that disturbs them, as a number of other lifeforms do, these retreat when approached instead.

The rare Calcite Plates can also be found here. These are large structures created by tiny organics, only present in relatively smaller areas of the galaxy.

Five variants of Torus Molluscs have been found to date:

  1. Caeruleum Torus Molluscs: Ovomly DA-Q d5-0
  2. Viride Torus Molluscs: Ovomly SS-K d8-8
  3. Blatteum Torus Molluscs: Ovomly HG-O d6-0
  4. Rubellum Torus Molluscs: Ovomly DA-Q d5-16
  5. Flavum Torus Molluscs: Ovomly YE-H d10-3
