A planetary nebula with spaceborne life inside a Lagrange cloud.
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:
A planetary nebula found deep in the galactic core, with some unique history of its own. It was first discovered by CMDR Marx in 3301, and named it the Hengist nebula after the late Emperor Hengist Duval, who was assassinated a few days after.
However, years later, that prediction turned out to be false: in 3305, the Distant Worlds 2 expedition included this nebula as a minor waypoint, and several hundred explorers visited here as part of their journeys. The reason for the renewed interest was that scouts for the expedition found that a Lagrange storm cloud had formed in the system. These are to date one of the most rare phenomena, and this one houses L01-Type Anomalies (this is the only known system where they are found), and metallic crystals.
Later on, explorers have reported that the storms from the cloud had dissipated and the cloud became calm. While there were some scattered reports of lightning, the majority of Commanders who have visited in recent times haven't seen any, so current visitors should expect to see a regular Lagrange cloud here.
As an added curiosity, a terraformable water world orbits the secondary class G star, with a somewhat uncommon characteristic: while it could have been classified as an Earth-like planet, the presence of large amounts of water vapour has heated its atmosphere to a temperature that's well above what's considered breathable.
