The Pencil Nebula is only 800 LYs away from Sol and yet we might never have even looked at it, prey for the linear appearance triggering its popular name. However, this asteroid station now gives us more reason than ever to visit this place, where one can look out in peace at shapes of wind made by the neighbouring planet D5 A 5. Very close by this station, in the Regor sector, are some interesting Guardian ruins to visit if the traveller so wishes. But please do not do so before chatting with the barman of the "Seven Stages Movement". He will tell you this cooperation has invested quite a lot in building this rocky place but he might also ask for your assistance against a growing mysteriously named anarchy faction called.. "The Shunned".

The Pencil Nebula (also known as NGC 2736) is a small part of the Vela Supernova Remnant, located near the Vela Pulsar in the constellation Vela. The nebula's linear appearance triggered its popular name. It resides about 815 light-years away from the Solar System. It is thought to be formed from part of the shock wave of the larger Vela Supernova Remnant.
The nebula was discovered by John Herschel on March 1st, 1835. The nebula is blue and brown, is small for a non-planetary nebula, and contains no systems inside.
