Discovered circa 3302...

Point at which an intrepid explorer reached in a venture to locate a solar system on the far side of the galaxy that is the physically located antithesis of Sol. The system discovered turned out to be an unremarkable brown dwarf system with seven dead worlds, and one moon.

Update: 3304

It is now believed that the nearby star system of Luna's Shadow is the more appropriate location of Sol's antithesis as it lays on the zero meridian and is almost exactly the same distance from Sag-A* as Sol is.

Derthek's Folly will remain on the map for historical purposes only as it was the first genuine attempt to locate Sol's antithesis back during the era of pre-engineered jump ranges and limited route-plotting capabilities. CMDR Derthek's intrepid journey here will rightly be remembered. - Erimus Kamzel.
