Trifid Nebula (Hubble Space Telescope public domain image courtesy NASA / ESA)
NGC 6514 / M20
Large (40 ly across) Emission / Reflection Nebula in the Sagittarius Outer Volumes, about 5000 ly from Earth. Reached by and already being colonized by a number of clades and neumanns of various political persuasion, but still very much a frontier system. Not yet connected to the wormhole nexus. Among the indigenous life are a small number of amoebas (Cosmoameoboi), which seem to have spread here from further spinwards along the Sagittarius arm.
Cosmoamoeba - Text by M. Alan Kazlev Generic technical term for the giant space amoebas recently discovered in a number of bright emission nebulae along to the Sagittarius Outer Volume.
