This is a very brief post, largely for future reference. Future Corps / Sleeper Social Club has been exploring every shattered system we find in depth. So far, other than Thera itself, the most interesting system we’ve found has been J005299.
UPDATE 12/22: I was just pointed to Gentleman Gamer’s video the day after our find pointing out that this setup is also seen in J011195. Related forum thread is here. It is important to note that both of these systems are Class 4, within the same region (D-R00016) and constellation (D-C00328). I suspect this will be important later.
I have begun thinking of
this system these systems as “Sansha’s staging systems” – the places where they based to launch their incursions into k-space. It is one of the They are systems that have the uncommon find of a Silent Battlefield of Sansha and Sleeper wreckage, but there is something more important yet at the Epicenter.
Under the assumption that the Talocan Static Gates were previously functional, what these pictures show is a Sansha station (now wrecked) for them to operate from, as well as each static gate structure surrounded by Sansha control structures. These structures and the Sansha Incursion ships guarding them are unique to just this wormhole so far as we have discovered to date. The system is also filled with Sansha locations rather than Sleeper ones, which further reinforces the theory.
My corpmate Uxeric Straevaras has posted an extensive album of J005299 here as well. More to come as we find it.
