The Derchon Anomaly is an unsolved mystery.

  • As its name indicates, it is an Anomaly.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

In early 1102, an unidentified object transited the outer reaches of the Derchon (Spinward Marches Lunion) system, following a roughly Coreward-Coreward-Trailing vector. It was traveling at such high velocity (estimated 0.12C) that no ship could possibly intercept it.

Sensor data revealed that that:

1) The object had a high albedo
2) It was spinning or tumbling rapidly
3) Its mass was in the 1,000-2,000 ton range
4) It was highly radioactive

Although the object was not under acceleration, these facts argue strongly in favor of some type of artificial construction.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Similar occurrences have been noted before in the Marches, but have been dismissed as Old Spacer's Tales.
