The Theta Carinae Cluster is a star cluster located in the Deep Periphery.[1]

System DescriptionEdit

The Theta Carinae Cluster is a significant astronomical feature in the coreward Deep Periphery. Located over 522 light-years from Terra, the cluster is just rimward of the Draconis Combine. It is considered to be an active cluster for star formation. The location of the Theta Carinae Cluster was released by Interstellar Expeditions on charts in 3095.[1]

System HistoryEdit

Interstellar Expeditions was engaged in active explorations of the Theta Carinae Cluster in 3095.[2]

  • The Theta Carinae Cluster was first identified in 2012 with the publication of Interstellar Players 3: Interstellar Expeditions. Other than the astrogeographical location of the cluster, no information was provided in the system; in the absence of further information on the Deep Periphery, no further detail is likely to be available on the Theta Carinae Cluster.
