According to a recently released annual report of the Teladi Company, a number of early readings could, under certain circumstances, be interpreted to indicate a faint flow in the Turquoise Sea nebula. This revelation, apparently staggering to some individuals, has led to a new surge in non-scientific theories, including one which suggests that a current originating on the nearby moon might be the reason for the bluish haze that encases part of this system. Notwithstanding a striking lack of evidence of settlements on this particular celestial body, wild stories of secret mining facilities, ancient technology and gaseous alien life have already begun to circulate, and the Teladi Company has registered a sudden but welcome rise in the sales of resource probes. If nothing else, this newfound fascination for the otherwise-secluded sector serves to provide rogue entrepreneurs with ample cover to set up operations.
Turquoise Sea IX is more secluded then Turquoise Sea X and misses much of the conflict making it safer to establish a base of operations but still vulnerable with the Superhighway the only way out of the sector.
