It was named by the Galactic Mapping Project with the name of: IC 4673 Sector
There is no traffic report for HEN 2-333.
This sector is one of several anomalies found throughout the galaxy. For reasons unknown, hyperdrives refuse to lock on to the stars in this area of space, effectively making it impassable to deep space travellers. Pilots are thus required to either avoid this area or to plot a course above, below or around it. What may be found within this restricted area remains a mystery for the time being.
The Aronnax Expedition reached the vicinity of the permit-locked IC 4673 Sector on 19th January 3304 and spent one week surveying the borders for signs of spacefaring activity, as well as outdoor worlds and systems with all the materials needed for FSD boosting ('green' systems). The region was also circumnavigated to establish its size and morphology, which revealed it to be a sphere of 100 LY radius centred on the Wolf-Rayet system Hen 2-333, which is a possible supernova candidate and is surrounded by a tiny nebula consisting of mass thrown off the central star.
It is currently unknown whether the permit lock is a result of a safety precaution or interference from astrophysical phenomena, such as extreme radiation resulting from a supernova, however the immediate vicinity of the border was discovered to have an unusual abundance of life-bearing worlds, including two systems that each harbour two Earth-like Worlds, that must all be considered endangered.
Full details, including the location of a suitable 'Forward Base' system a safe distance from Hen 2-333, can be found in the expedition journal-
