Star System Information

The Yidira system lies at the edge of an active nebula. The nebula recently (in astronomical terms) spawned a cluster of magnetars that lie near to (read: less than 10 ly from) Yidira. As a result of the stellar nursery and the magnetars, there are only about a dozen safe routes (either sublight or via hyperspace) to the Yidira system itself.

The Xillash have heavily populated these safe routes with manned planetary defense stations and purloined deep-space probes. Only the rare smuggler has stumbled upon these routes, and thus far, they have been considerably overmatched by the Xillash system defense forces.

As a result of the nebula and magnetars, the Antarans have not yet managed to find the Xillash homeworld despite various scout/survey missions. The same formation has kept the Yidira system off the Imperial charts. This is particularly ironic, as the Antaran system lies nearly directly through the nebula from Yidira.
