The old Guard system of the Golden Chrysanthemums was removed after 4.85 with most other guard systems. Bases/ Planets are either re-purposed in other Systems or removed.

Tau-65 System

Little is known about this Guard system. The Golden Chrysanthemum Guard protects this system from enemy incursions with deadly force. However, trespassers aren't killed on sight if they haven't been for longer than five minutes in the system. They may choose whether they turn back and pay a fine of five million, or be destroyed. The entry points into this system is not known on any lawful database, and only the Golden Chrysanthemum members know actually where this system is. The location of this system is on a need to know basis, it is usually considered Top Secret information. Rumors persist of a ancient Mine field in the system, as well as a Neutron Star.

Areas of Interest

Asteroid Fields

Hachiman Ice Field

The Hachiman ice field has long been a source of water for the Golden Chrysanthemums and a number of small mining machines are scattered throughout the ice fields collecting water to bring back to Morioka base, where it is purified into a drinkable form.

Ishijima Asteroid Field

An asteroid field with no appreciable resources, although it has a small measure of scientific interest as it is believed that the field may be the remnants of a large asteroid or small planetoid that got too close to one of the stars and broke up.

Nishiara Asteroid Field

The Nishiara asteroid field is believed to have once been a planet that collided with the X-ray Pulsar at the heart of the field. The asteroids contain reasonable quantities of plutonium, niobium and iron, but due to the extremely high levels of radiation pouring from the X-ray Pulsar it is far too difficult and dangerous for anyone to extract the materials. The heavily shielded Kawada Research Complex lies within the field, and fortunately the area lying in the "shadow" of the base remains largely radiation free, thanks to the shielding provided by the station.

Due to the very intense strength of the bursts, it is highly recommended for all vessels to avoid the Nishiara Asteroid Field at all costs, and numerous wrecks lie within the field as a testament to those who did not heed the warning buoys.

Nebulaes

Takkinai Cloud

The Takkinai Cloud is beautiful mass of multiple inert gases, but despite the visual aesthetics of the cloud it remains a dangerous area to enter. Sensor efficiency is reduced to almost nothing and there are rumours of a dangerous minefield near the centre of the nebula, although what it defends is anyone's guess.

Artificial Formations

Goyomai Debris Field

This debris field is all that remains of the Goyomai Outpost, destroyed by the Farmers Alliance in a large attack on the Tau-65 system in early 817 A.S.
