This is the system of GJ 3323.

It is home to two terrestrial worlds which are acceptable terraforming candidates and a gas giant with 21 moons. Minerals unknown.

It is our empire's white whale; it is our folly. It is a graveyard to 477,000 tons of military shipping and 15,000 souls.

4 generations of technical innovation; years of construction... scrap floating on the stellar breeze.

...

We're confident that this generation of ships has what it takes.

So, I have discovered a system with 3 stars, 2 of them rotate around the first which is close to the JP, one of them, which is the one with planets and stuff, is 700billion Km distant from the jump point. The LP1 is located in this star, but since the other 2 are planetless, there's no way to create another LP. Is there anything I can do to avoid a travel of 700billion away?

If you're willing to 'cheat' a little, you can go into SM mode, add a gas giant to one of the closer stars, and stabilize a LP.

Other than that, you're pretty much limited to going into SM mode and deleting the third star, since it's otherwise going to be useless. AFAIK, jump points will only ever show up around the primary star, so you can't even hope that a second JP into the system will pop up over there.

Thanks, no I do not like game-cheating, so I am going to survey the stuff there and if there is something interesting, well, let's see, I'll create super fast cargo eventually.

Dude, 700 bn km distance is too much. Even if you create a super-long-distance surveyor, it will take ages for it to get there. Using SM is not cheating, per se, it is meant for helping storytelling and facilitating gameplay. As AlStar said, the best option is to create a gas giant to orbit the primary star so that you can then use a stabilization ship to create a LP that you can then use for intra-system jumps.

Yeah, if you're not going to edit in a lagrange anchor, you're probably best off just ignoring the place.

In VB Aurora you might have been able to do something with hyperdrive, but lacking that that distance is extremely impractical.

Yeah, I totally understand, but that's how I play everygame, no cheats that facilitate or give advantages, I take whatever comes during the gameplay.

I like to think that this scenario might be real in the universe one day, at that point it is not that we will pop up a gas giant from nowhere, so if Steve did not add any solution to the game to avoid a 700billion travel, he might have had his reasons to do that and I like this as it is.

That being said, there's a 2 colony cost planet there and from the storytelling point of view, I could sent there 100000 people only in an eternal voyage with a colony ship and some infra, then they will live there forever isolated from the rest of the universe  ::)

Yeah, that's a valid choice. I did not want you waste time & effort trying to exploit the secondary star system, only to realize that it is impossible without an LP. But that sort of Exodus thing would be pretty cool. You can play all sorts of political & religious schisms and so on for it.

I'd be worried that all my civilian ships would get stuck on the 10+ year voyage to drop off colonists / trade goods there.

Military restricting the planet shoudl avoid that, shoudln't it?

Yeah, you can either make the entire system restricted or the colony/colonies you create specifically, if you need to use the system as a transit point.

I'm playing a WH40k campaign, but started conventional. Eighteen years in and I haven't launched a warship yet, although I finally have a few building. I also haven't created any out-system colonies yet, mainly because I have never seen an early map with so many empty systems. The two most promising ones (Orpheus and Sigma Draconis), both have hostile aliens. So far, I have been using fighter-sized survey ships, but I just launched my first pair of full-size survey ships. They are unarmed, but carry two fighters, two scout shuttles and an assault transport.

That southern branch of your starmap is depressing - just billions of kms of emptiness (not that the eastern branch is much better!)

Is that "real stars" but some are renamed? or is there a name theme that has real stars?
