Solar system 'Great Refuge (SGC311)' is a dual star system that comprises the stars 'Great Refuge.A' and 'Great Refuge.B' and the retinue of celestial objects gravitationally bound to them: 9 planets and their 787 moons, as well as asteroids, meteoroids, planetoids, comets, and interplanetary dust.

The principal components of this star system are the stars 'Great Refuge.A' and 'Great Refuge.B' that dominate it gravitationally. 'Great Refuge.A' is a red giant class star that contains about 90% of the system's known mass, 'Great Refuge.B' is a yellow dwarf class star that contains about 9% of the system's known mass.

System 'Great Refuge' is located more than 2405 lightyears from the center of the galaxy.

As the Great Refuge system is a binary system, and the two stars orbit each other. A problem is that most of the areas around the stars are subject to immense gravitational pressures, called grav lines by the Canthins, leaving only two relatively small lanes that will not suck a ship into the stars.
If these are not aligned to the destination, which is most of the time, then it can add hours or even days onto a journey. Worse, as the stars orbit each other the lanes move as well, meaning a ship has to “chase” after the stars to stay in the lane. This leads to more delays. A solution has been developed, the use of anti-gravity barges. These barges let the ship ignore the gravity of the stars and thus allow a larger lane for ships to leave the true inner system.
But there is a catch; the anti-grav barges slow ships down. It increased the safety factor a lot though, and it also increases the speed slightly. There is a maximum size to these barges, which meant bigger ships still had to use the lane.

The system currently is ruled by the Great Refuge Empire.

There is a Voidgate to Zerod, OTLCranas Greatness, Atheists Haven and New Trade.

Pre-Chaos Age information

It is within these Grav lines and lanes that one of the few major battles of the 1st Canthin war took place, major because a great deal of RTN capital ships were destroyed here. It was also the last battle of Admiral Meeak Greeow of the CTN, mastermind of all the major victories in that war.

The 1st planet of this system was submitted to the Mananins in exchange for FTL 9 and anti matter. It was originally called Krian and was named after a prestigious scientist in Canthin history. It also had a space station that was the only main base of Canthin Atheists in the system. this was the beginning of the hostilities against the Atheists, and also the beginning of the Atheists rise to power.

This system is now mostly under the control of the Confederation. Only the Children planets are not part of the Confederation.

VoiProject set up a jump gate from here to Zerod, a black hole. this has allowed increased trade to the Great Refuge system. The project was jointly sponsored by the Confederation and the Children.

Several other jump gates have been added, one to OTL Cranas Greatness, one to Atheists Haven and one to New Trade.

The Trade Link Project (not up to date, new systems have been added to the network, mainly at OTL Cranas beauty):
