The California Nebula is a nebula located in the Deep Periphery, far rimward of the Taurian Concordat, on the other side of the Perseus-Cepherus Cloud Complex.[1]

System Description[edit]

The California Nebula was the name given to a nebula rimward of the border of the Taurian Concordat.[1] Though maps indicate it as a separate region from the Perseus-Cepherus Cloud Complex, astronomically-speaking, it—along with the Flying Bat Nebula and the Cepheus Cloud—comprise parts of the larger feature. The nature of gas, dust, and radiation in the region have prevented settlements in the quantity seen equidistantly located in other parts of the Deep Periphery.[2] The provided coordinates designate the nebula's center point.


  • The California Nebula was first identified in 2012 with the publication of Interstellar Expeditions: Interstellar Players 3 . Other than the location of the California Nebula and its definition as a nebula, no information was provided on the feature; in the absence of further information on the Deep Periphery, no further detail is likely to be available on the California Nebula.
