Star System:Thraikoo PS-U e2-4
Coordinates:-18646 / -6.0625 / 7135.94
Sol Distance: 19,964.8 ly
Region:Vulcan Gate


A rich planetary nebula, and former home of the DSSA Inverness.

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:

    Thracian Nebula (planetaryNebula), Thraikoo PS-U e2-4


The Thracian Nebula is situated on the Perseus galactic arm, in the Vulcan Gate region. The nebula itself is a remnant from a supernova, and although the central star had collapsed into a black hole, the light comes from two other stars in the system.

The central black hole

A varied host of planets orbit these in various configurations, the most notable of which is a water world (named Skudra) that's almost Earth-like: the temperature is just two Kelvins below the minimum required boundary for Universal Cartographics to classify it as such... if the planet had any landmasses, besides the polar ice caps.


A host of small landable worlds also orbit both stars.

Explorers who have reached this nebula from the bubble can travel farther West to the noted Ovomly sector, which houses the only form of spaceborne life known to thrive around white dwarf stars: Torus Molluscs. Aside from a few points of interest farther in the region, Vulcan Gate is relatively lightly explored (at the time of writing) compared to many other galactic regions, so there are plenty of opportunities for Commanders who wish to make their mark on the galaxy.

From 3306 August 29 to 3308 September 10, the nebula was home to the DSSA Inverness carrier:

  • Carrier Name: DSSA Inverness
  • Registration: X8Y-34X
  • Carrier Class: Nautilus Class
  • Commission Date (date signed up to the DSSA): July 25th 3306
  • Carrier Construction Date: June 9th 3306
  • Construction Location: Jackson Ring, CD-47 990
  • Maiden Jump(s): 101 Tauri for fueling (June 9th 3306), IGAU Inverness Nebula Survey Expedition (June 15 3306 to August 27 3306)
  • In-service Date (date the vessel began its DSSA service): August 29th 3306
  • Services Available: Refuel, Repair, Armoury, Redemption Office, Shipyard, Universal Cartographics, Concourse Bar, Vista Genomics
  • Tariff Percentage Set: 0%
  • Commodities Bought/Sold on Carrier: Tritium (as part of the STAR Network)
  • Nearest Tritium Hotspot: Unknown at this time

This carrier was originally commissioned as the IGAU Inverness, as a mobile research carrier that led an expedition spanning 50,000 ly, surveying nebulae and gathering biological samples from spaceborne aliens. Once the expedition was finished with the Inverness having delivered the samples to the Holloway Biology Centre at Colonia, the carrier was assigned to the DSSA, and was later renamed to DSSA Inverness. After a short refueling campaign that was helped by independent Commanders and the IGAU squadron, the carrier reached its deployment location in the Thracian Nebula on August 29th, 3306.

After the famous lost green gas giant was found, once At The Eldritch Gate expedition was complete, the carrier retired from the DSSA and STAR networks and left this system.
