Unlike the deceptive Will-o'-wisp star found further "north" of this point, the Tristar Beacon is a true and distinctive navigational marker. It is a trinary system of two very bright B-stars and one even brighter O-star. For travelers approaching from the "north" it acts as a lighthouse, showing the way to safe waters after the treacherous crossings from the far rim. For travelers approaching from the "south" is serves as the final warning post - from here on onward are perils... And ships with a range below 30+ LY are not recommended to continue "north" of Tristar along the Sagittarius-Carina Mission route. An alternative route can be taken via the Distant Worlds waypoints.
The beacon system itself contains no landable planets, but a nearby system offers a place to rest for the weary traveller.
