Branaugh System

The Branaugh system is an unclaimed planetary system that consists of a K-type main sequence star, two terrestrial planets, one gas giant, and an asteroid belt. Although it was officially discovered by mining surveyor Desmond Fell in 2877, he was not the first Human to visit the system. During Fell's initial surveys, he located the crashed ship and the body of explorer Theresa Branaugh, who had gone missing four years prior. The UEE ultimately chose not to claim the system after the Senate Subcommittee on Expansion delivered an analysis that showed that the potential resources gleaned from the system would barely offset the cost of development. Since then, an enclave of Tevarin expatriates has developed on Branaugh II, despite its unfriendly atmosphere.
