Sigma 17 is a Sigma-Border Worlds system that lies outside the Sigma-19. The system is known for the amount of Alien Organisms, and have attracted at least two corporations, Samura Heavy Industries and Cryer Pharmaceuticals, to establish bases there. The sole jump gate is located at the Northeast side of the system, and connects the Sigma 19 system.
In 824 AS the GMG started an invasion of Kurile ans captured the planet from Samura. Now is Sigma 17 almost completly in GMG's hands, but the Samura loyal Hogosha & Farmers Alliance still attacks the GMG.

>>>WARNING: NAVIGATIONAL HAZARD<<<
An outcropping of the Edge Nebula, Kunashir is unique in that it hides a planet within its foreboding depths: Kurile. Initially discovered by the Gas Mining Guild (GMG), it was abandoned for its lack of useful resources and later claimed by Samura. Samura is engaged in a long-term research project to find commercial applications for Kurile's one form of native life, already proven useful in Junyo's fish-farming operations. Frequent Corsair and Outcast attacks have in no way diminished Samura's interest.
Nemuro Dust Field
A large field of fine particulate matter. Atka Station, an outpost of Cryer Pharmaceuticals, was constructed here to study the varieties of organic life found in the nebula.
Ruins of Freeport 7
In the system are the remains of Freeport 7, which was destroyed at the beginning of the Nomad War.
