The Aurigae system is the location of at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3095 was an independent system located in the Deep Periphery.[1]

System Description[edit]

Aurigae is located in the rimward region of the Deep Periphery, close to the California Nebula and the Perses-Cepherus Cloud Complex. As with many systems located in the Deep Periphery, close is a relative term; the nearest known inhabited system to Aurigae is that containing the former Rim Worlds Republic Outpost #11, which is located almost 300 light years away from Aurigae.[1]

Aurigae was first identified in 2012 with the publication of Interstellar Players 3: Interstellar Expeditions. Other than the astrogeographical location of Aurigae, no information was provided in the system; in the absence of further information on the Deep Periphery no further detail is likely to be available on Aurigae.
