Located more or less on a direct line from Sol to Sagittarius A*, the Three Kings are a group of three stately orange giant stars attended by a court of other giant stars. The three main systems are very close to each other (approximately 3 ly), while a rough survey of the vicinity at the time of discovery has turned up no less than 12 more giant star systems within a 100 ly radius. It is likely that upon closer scrutiny a few more giants can be found.
Outstanding systems among the already discovered giants are:
- Floawns YE-R D4-346 (a double red giant star system)
- Floawns EG-Y F660 (a blue-white supergiant star system)
- Floawns YE-R D4-385 (a carbon star system)
- Floawns YE-R D4-127 and Floawns XE-R D4-59 (a red giant and an orange giant star system, respectively, each with an earth-like world in it)
The Three Kings should provide a welcome rest stop and sight-seeing diversion for any traveller passing through the region, although Commanders are advised that their vessels may have to detour a bit as the point of interest is located almost 1300 ly below the galactic plane. On the other hand, due to the location visibility of the galactic disc is excellent, and because the area of space contains a great deal of blue-white stars planetary skies are usually full of pretty bright lights. Finally, the main POI system contains 17 landable planets which should provide ample opportunities to stock up on FSD injection and other materials. A definitive survey of the available materials is not yet available, though.
