"I found it, just short of Zeta2 Reticuli. We haven't reached the Outer Rim yet."

Zeta Reticuli

Location of Zeta Reticuli (circled).

Zeta Reticuli (Zeta Ret, ζ Reticuli, ζ Ret) was a wide binary star system in the southern constellation of Reticulum. From the southern hemisphere, the pair could be seen as a naked eye double star in very dark skies. Based upon parallax measurements, this system was located at a distance of about 39 light-years (12 parsecs) from the Earth. Zeta2 Reticuli was orbited by a circumstellar debris disk. Both stars were solar analogs that shared similar characteristics with the Sun. They belonged to the Zeta Herculis Moving Group of stars that shared a common origin.

Zeta Reticuli was home to Calpamos and its moons, among them Acheron and LV-223, (located in Zeta2 Reticuli) and KG-348 (located in the "Zeta Reticuli region").
