The Horgens 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]

Horgens is located in the rimward region of the Deep Periphery beyond the Perses-Cepherus Cloud Complex and the California Nebula. Horgens is located close to the Mizdargh and Fager systems, although as with many systems located in the Deep Periphery, "close" is a relative term; the closest of these systems, Mizdargh, lies almost 240 light years distant from Horgens.[1]

Horgens was first identified in 2012 with the publication of Interstellar Players 3: Interstellar Expeditions. Other than the astrogeographical location of Horgens, 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 Horgens.
