    Sagittarius A* (historicalLocation), Sagittarius A*


Sagittarius A* is the supermassive black hole at the centre of our galaxy. The first Commander who made a successful voyage to the system and back was CMDR Zulu Romeo, near the end of the year 3300. Since then, the Centre has become a popular destination for explorers, who have visited it by the tens of thousands. In addition to singular pilots making the voyage on their own, Sagittarius A* has also been a popular waypoint for groups of explorers as well, such as the first Distant Worlds expedition, or for racers, such as the Buckyball Racing Club.

In 3305, a small community sprung up in the area around Sagittarius A*, with some research installations and a station called Explorer's Anchorage built in the nearby Stuemeae FG-Y d7561 system, during the Distant Worlds 2 initiative.

It's also worth noting that the G2 Dust Cloud survived an encounter with Sagittarius A* millenia ago, and moved on on its journey through the galaxy. Today, explorers can find it 2,000 ly away from the centre.
