Barnard's Star

Barnard's Star is a very-low-mass red dwarf star with a single planet in its orbit: Hemera. 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 colonial network; being Earth's closest link to the Ophiuchus-Aquila region of sky, most Earthbound shipments of Altairi goods pass through Hemera (or at the very least the station Astraeus.)



The Barnard's Star system is close to the heart of known space, in the northern celestial hemisphere.
