Point of Interest: Bradley Barrier Anomaly[edit]

Its main claim to fame are the events of 993 which gave rise to the legend of the "Bradley Barrier". Late that year, the system's primary star SK-433677m, began producing an unusual, extremely regular sequence of flares. This lasted for two weeks and had no effect on stations in system as they were adequately shielded. It did, however, affect traffic arriving.

Of the four vessels which jumped in-system during that time, one emerged into normal space with extensive thermal damage, its crew critically ill from Jump sickness. Two others re-emerged as thousand-tonne slugs of molten metal. The only undamaged vessel was a naval transport.

The Navy attempted to cover up the incident but media agencies rapidly picked up on the story. Speculation was rife. Some reported that the injured crew claimed to have been attacked by “monsters in jumpspace”. The most popular theory was that the Navy had been testing an Ancient hyper spatial weapon, powered by the system’s primary star. The Navy kept a wary silence but eventually released a statement pointing out that all the affected ship's had been manufactured by GSbAG, which had reportedly been suffering reliability problems with jump drive integration at that time.

As of yet, the strange flare sequence has not recurred.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Bradley system is the site of the Debeyer Imperial Naval Facility originally established to combat piracy on the Dagudashaag Main during the early years of the Third Imperium. Debeyer now functions as a small repair and supply base and also carries out research into new sensor and communicator systems in the 'noisy' electromagnetic environment near the far companion Basa; an M-dwarf binary. The Ushran corporation TerraTech LIC has approximately 100 staff insystem conducting an advanced terraforming experiment on the world itself.

The 694th BatRon, of the Imperial 209th Fleet occupies the Naval base. The main fleet base is located on the planet's outer moon. The majority of the population serve as contractors to provide logistical and support functions for the fleet elements stationed here.
