The supergiant red star that had once dominated the system was long gone. Aeons ago, the massive star ran out of nuclear fuel and it could no longer sustain its own weight and began to collapse.
Very little is know about the system, how many planets once orbited that long gone star, if life rose from the primordial ooze of its worlds and if any civilizations thrived here in this forgotten corner of the galaxy.
Early spacefarers learned to avoid this system due to its complex gravitational tides and forces from the massive black hole at it's core. Today the Oachek system was no more that a curious albeit dangerous place in the Olian Cloud, attracting the odd scientist and researcher once in a while.

It was the perfect meeting rendezvous place for Zendichez's auction. Very specific instructions had been shared with those attending to translate into the system at its edges as to avoid the massive pull of the maw of darkness.
By the time the Dragonfly translated into the system, other vessels were dotted across space waiting for further instructions.
Walker looked at the instruments and their scanners. Next to him Gideon performed several last minute checks to ensure they were not in any imminent danger.
"Scans showed several other vessel in the region..." Walker said looking at the instruments. "But we cannot get any lock on them because of the huge energy spikes of accretion from the black hole. Output at 40%."
Gideon nodded. Behind them Kali stood looking at the massive black hole that dominated the view of their cockpit even at such massive distance.
"Maintaining position at 27 AU." Gideon stated. "Radio auspex silent. All nominal systems working within acceptable parameters."

All they had to do now was wait...
