System 218
There is a curious anomaly in the ship's database regarding this system: the database informs us that the system has 16 planets, which
are sensors have confirmed, but all other data on these planets was missing. It is almost impossible that this could be an error. It is as if
the data has either been withheld or it has been intentionally deleted. Space Command have been informed and are at a loss to explain
the missing data and are investigating possible sabotage. They suspect a highly sophisticated computer virus may have removed the

Key features for further exploration:

The system consists of five stars. Two binaries, each consisting of an M-class red dwarf and a K-class orange dwarf orbit about their
common centre of mass and a remote brown dwarf star orbits these four. Of the 16 planets, 7 orbit the whole group in highly elliptical
orbits at great distance and these are cold and inhospitable planets, possibly on the brink of being lost to interstellar space. Most
fascinating are two gas giants (one a supergiant) and their satellites, each of which orbits one of the K-dwarfs in the habitable zone!
Temperatures on the 15 major satellites of these two giants are quite comfortable, though gravity is low and the atmospheres are thin in
most cases, three of these satellites are of potential biological interest. The giants themselves also have mild temperatures in regions of
their atmospheres and so are also of potential interest.
