History and Background
In an announcement in 990, a Senior Scout Leader for the IISS stated that the interdiction status for Corcoran would be lifted gradually over the next ten years, as "extensive research has demonstrated that the existence of an Ancient site on the planet was a carefully fabricated hoax, perpetrated by individuals who are currently in Imperial custody."
The lack of Ancient sites within The Empty Quarter remains a mystery, as they can be found throughout most other sectors of Charted Space. No other possible Ancient sites are known to exist within the Empty Quarter. What this signifies is still being debated in the halls of academia.
