An unusual star type, this Class Y brown dwarf is effectively a Gas Giant with stellar properties rather than a true star. It has a surface temperature of around 378K. It’s also interesting in that it supports a ring system.

The Hemsut System, populated by a large number of migrant astro physiscists who spend at least 10% of their time studying the interesting orbital mechanics of a tri stellar system and the other 90% undergoing treatment for severe radiation burns. Courageous or foolhardy pilots, it’s hard to tell which, offer their services in wild gravitational thrill rides around the orbits of the three stars.

Stellar Cartographics Record Breakers used to list  LTT 16979 as the most populated Independent system in the Galactic Pill with a decent population of 1.2 billion people. However that title recently fell to Eta Cephei after an updated census.

In system trade here is busy, with a grand total of seven stations competing for business.
