Dauphine System

Dauphine is the site of many battles in the Second Gallic War, and currently the staging ground for the Gallic Royal Navy as they prepare to drive Council out of Languedoc. The system is currently in the state between large engagements, and tentative traffic can be seen going from Gap Station to Burgundy- but within the year the Gallic Royal Navy plans to destroy Council's southern segment, and Dauphine will surely be the site of many more battles before the war is over.

Bourgon-Jallieu Wreck

The site of what used to be Bourgon-Jallieu Station until it was destroyed by Council after a failed attempt to capture it during the Second Gallic War. The area around the Trade Lane juncture is filled with pieces of the station that were blown off or have since come loose, but enough of the station remains intact to remind travelers of the damage caused by the war.

Privas Planetary Cluster

A one-of-a-kind phenomenon found only in the Dauphine system, Privas is a set of four gas giants in perfect orbit around a smaller planetoid in the center. Common explanations for how the gas giants remain in orbit without merging together range from "dark energy" to "magic", but the most widely accepted scientific theory is one of a series of magnets inside the planets that both keeps the gas giants from merging and keeps them spinning around the central planetoid at equal distance. Expeditions down to the central planetoid have been unsuccessful so far, as the strong forces between the planets tear apart any ship attempting to slip in between them.
