Burgundy is the seat of Gallic Royal power in the Gallic Border Worlds, currently containing the only populated planet (Planet Nevers) under Royal control in the region prior to the Gallic Expansion into Sirius. It also contains Dijon Station, the supply depot for the Gallic Royal Navy's efforts against Council, as well as connections to two of the Core Worlds systems, as well as Lorraine, Champagne, and Dauphine. The bulk of the fighting between the Gallic Royal Police (and to a lesser extent the Gallic Royal Navy) and the various unlawful groups of Gallia occurs in this system, due in no small part to the commerce traveling from Dijon Station and Planet Nevers, as well as the now frequent traffic with the re-opening of the Core-Worlds jumpgates.
Areas of Interest
A vast nebula consistent mainly of small ice particles.
A medium-sized nebula of ice particles located within the Nievre Asteroid Field.
Nievre Asteroid Field
A relatively large asteroid field in the densely populated area of the Burgundy system. Council activity is known to be high within the field, with pirates of various kinds also present.
Morvan Asteroid Field
An asteroid field in a populated area of Burgundy system. Gallic Brigands activity is known to be high within the field borders, and civilians are advised to keep their distance.
Genlis Debris Field
A medium-sized field of large space debris remaining after construction of the Dijon Station. This area was also used to dump debris remaining after other Burgundy base construction sites. Junkers have made an attempt to clear outer parts of the field, but after the start of Second Gallic War it became obvious that this operation won't reach completion anytime soon.
Tille Debris Field
A debris field located not far from Alesia Station, formed after construction of Alesia, Avallon and nearby trade lanes in 600-700 A.S.
A planet of immense size and gravitation, Tonnerre is the center of the explored parts of the Burgundy system. Located between two stars, this gas giant is not only the largest planet in all Gallia (and probably in all Sirius)), but also has the largest known system of planetary rings. The rings consist of three distinct parts: colorful inner rings containing dust and rock asteroids, and a white outer ring consisting mainly of ice asteroids and small ice particles. Tonnerre has four moons, namely Yonne, Auxerre, Chatillion-sur-Seine, and Saulieu. Simulations indicate that another two planetoids in the system used to orbit it as well.
