Under the pretext that the local Black Hole was suddenly expandig, threatening the lives of millions of (mostly nietzschean) colonists, the High Guard flagship Andromeda Ascendant was lured into the system, where it was ambushed by about 10'000 nietzschean warships.
While trying to commence a catapult maneuver along the event horizon of the black hole, the Andromeda was frozen in time for 300 years.
The best known planet of the system is Hephaistos IV.
