A dead system is one of those destinations which can be reached via the ring gates but which does not include any systems with planetary bodies in a goldilocks zone rather something inexplicably strange and dead. Known among these are places called Charon, Adro, and Naraka.[1]

These are the subject of common speculation and questions at high-level governmental discussions and events. Due to the lack of familiarity, these are also the subject of fear, terror, dread.

Notes Edit

  • Attention is called to these systems during the grand opening event at TSL-5

Trivia Edit

  • A goldilocks zone can be summarized as a region in a planetary system where bodies are at a distance suitable for sustaining life. For instance, these would have range of temperatures which allow liquid water and atmosphere. For more information, refer to a reputable science-based resource
