|VEQUEX: TRAVELLER'S INFORMATION|
Vequex is a Class M, main sequence, flare star. The star is extremely interesting to scientists, having the most predictable flare sequences out of all the flare stars in populated space. None of the planets are suitable for terraformation, the inner planets being nothing more than large asteroids.
|HISTORY AND NOTABLE FEATURES|
It is surprising that this system is inhabited at all. In fact, the only industry is mining. If it was just the miners, the system population would be less than 10,000. A large proportion of the population is military in nature, this system being a prime training ground for AJN cadets. The other large slice of the population is from the Braben Research Institute, based at a massive orbital city, orbiting the star at 0.4 AU. There are a number of oddities about this system (the best known being the regularity of the flare star), and active research continues into many of the phenomena that have been observed all over the system.
