Barnard's Star is an ancient, very-low-mass red dwarf star with two planets in its orbit: the terrestrial Hemera and ice giant Aether. It is the third-closest star system to Sol at a distance of just 6 light-years. Though littered with debris from destroyed skgri'i technology, the system is a vitally important link in the interstellar transport network; being Earth's closest link to the Ophiuchus-Aquila region of sky, most Earthbound shipments of Altairi goods pass through the system.
LocationThe Barnard's Star system is close to the heart of known space, in the northern celestial hemisphere.
