M67, often referred to as the 'Cancri Cluster' or the 'Elysium Cluster' by explorers, is a large open star cluster high off the galactic plane, far beyond the reach of regular FSD ranges. It is also known as NGC 2682 The only route is via the 'Cancri Climb' using a mixture of Jumponinum boosts and Neutron supercharging.
The final neutron star along the route, nicknamed 'Decision', is the point of no return. Explorers with ships capable of around 55 LY range, coupled with the 300% supercharged boost from Decision, can make the jump to AH Cancri. But be warned! There is no known way back from Elysium from that point onward...
In January 3303 the Distant Stars Expedition, consisting of over 350 pilots, made the one way journey to M67 and mapped the entire cluster.
It is rumored that a new human outpost (The Elysium Colony) is currently being establish within the cluster, as all who traveled there have no known means of returning home due to the absence of neutron stars within the cluster.
