NGC 3199 is a large red emmision nebula on the edge of the Orion Shallows - marking the point where the Centaurus Arm makes a dramatic bend to the galactic north. When viewed from certain angles, the nebula resembles a large red bird.

The sector around the nebula also has a lot of crystals of all types: metallic, ice, silicate - and large population of Bullet Molluscs. Despite their small size and relative harmlessness, some species actually try to banish alien objects from their habitat by following them and emitting EMP, which interferes ship's systems and causes slight damage, so visitors should be careful studying these molluscs (source).

NGC 3199 was extensively explored and surveyed during a long-range mission along the Orion Spur in March 3301. In the fall of 3301 the nebula was revisited by the Sagittarius-Carina Mission, and later by the SHEPARD Mission in 3302.
