Lore does point to a Jump that collapsed in the middle of a system terraforming, with no idea what happened to the people there--probably dead after being cut off from supplies is my guess, so if the jump ever reopens we'll either find at best a dead system or at worst Zompocalypse IIIIIIIN SPAAAAAAAACE...
Anyone got a Con Andromeda Physical Goodies package you're thinking about melting for a Digital? Send me a note--maybe we can make a deal.

Unlikely, with ships that can house livestock and green house gardens... Most likely those fellas are still alive and kicking.
It's a penguin... with a gun. I'd run if I were you.

It's worth investigating at the very least just to see what happened even if we need to send an exploration team the long way on a "scenic" mission.

They've been eating each other and whatever they can get their hands on forever. They are now Reavers.

Now that would be rather exciting actually. Almost wish I could volunteer for that investigation. Too bad I am going to be busy with other things. I have experiments to run, there is research to be done on the Vanduul who are still alive.

I made a post on another thread about this and searching the star map if we wish to take orion we must take a system with a large jump point... Most people are going to be using smaller ships but those coming in with an Idris should in no way be discounted... Those are the battleships of the time period and potentially even smaller craft carrier since we don't know what the fuel and range of our smaller craft will be. Sure most ships have a quantum drive but how far can that get us? across a single star system?

What are we gonna do if we use the oberon, virgil, tiber orion approach where we have to cross 3 whole system with no refueling and in heavy vanduul territory. In order to make a push in onto Orion the fleets must take Virgil!!! Economically and logistically that's the only real possibility... Once virgil is under control we can run raids and scouting mission into tiber of small stealth fighter wings... no more than 2 Hornet ghosts jumping in doing a scan and running back out to plan the next move.

Why Virgil? The planet was a major terraformed world, tropical climate producing plant life food for the uee and was used by the elites as a vacation spot. Depending on what is left of the planet and surrounding infrastructure and potential for derelict stations around the planet this could be a huge boost in staging area before tiber. Tiber would need to be crossed right down the middle between jump points.... This is a huge hurdle. Strategically speaking Orion may be out of range for the end of the beta but if we get one system up and running and set up for a war of attrition we could make a move on it in the future.
