These B Class stars, 54.04 LYs apart, with very close large pulsar companions, give the appearance of the stars wearing bow-ties. V970 Scorpii has its Pulsar very close to the B star which is the arrival point of the system.

HD 160167 also has two pulsars extremely close to each other, looking like two bow-ties. Not as close to the B star but still require caution to scan. This B star is not the entry star, the entry star does however have a black hole in proximity ready to catch out careless explorers. These treats are located around 500 LYs from Hillary Depot.
