|25 Nu-2 Draconis||3 D||Rocky||696||4370.88||0.08||94||1887||Tannik Seldon: Some nice dramatic terrain. Didn't have a scanner handy to check for surface features, but some amazing mountains & craters.|
Alec Turner: no POI's but the dramatic terrain is absolutely stunning. I could definitly spend a month driving around this one.
|MCC 460||1||High Metal Content||769||4829.32||0.11||118.31||32||Tannik Seldon: Nice coloring, reasonably interesting terrain but nothing stunning, on the big side. The main draw here is that there are two landable surface bases and two more outposts.|
Alec Turner: another sulphurous yellow planet, one large ringed city and one landable settlement + 2 outposts. Also geological POI's. Actually really like this one tho' possibly short on strong surface features?
|Bleia Eohn ZF-L d9-70||AB 3 a||?||582||3654.96||0.07||~2300?||?||AkenBosch: tidally locked moon skimming the ring system of its parent gas giant. Some narrow canyon formations, silicate vapour geysers.|
Alec Turner: "interesting" orbital cruise effects which result in landing while the ship is moving relative to the ring system rather than the planet give rise to the possibility of being able to drive to places that are unreachable by conventional ship landings.

|34 Omicron Cephei||A 3 A||Rocky||648||4069.44||0.08||~200?||?||Florenus: Orbiting gas giant binary, 34 vapour geysers|
Alec Turner: Dazzling sulphurous yellow surface
Vela Dark region MX-U C2-6
|14 A A||Rocky body||491||3083.48||0.05||~950?||1403.45||Nick Sticks: Interesting coloured terrain with craters, canyons and mountains.|
Alec Turner: Some nice terrain, varied colouring, somewhat slippery to drive on in places, 23 geologicals, 207ly from nearest SRV restock at New Growth asteroid base.
|Synuefe xo-p c22-17||C 3 A||Rocky||840||5275.2||0.1||578||1491||Florenus. It has Silicate vapour Geysers (21) and Brain Trees (9) sites. Moon of HMC World|
Nice to have both vents and brain trees to visit and the terrain is fairly interesting but it might be a bit on the dark side (tidally locked too)
|Ross 780||5 A||Ice world||638||4006.64||0.04||15||1749.6||Tidally locked but quite bright on the dark side. System has one ocellus starport and two outposts.|
Alec Turner: like a slightly milder, rasberry ripple Pomeche 2C - generally interesting to look at but maybe not enough specific features to head for? Does have 23 geological POI's (geysers)
|Yuracani||2||High Metal Content||424||2662.72||0.06||189||19||Tannik Seldon: Has a base. (Missing other details since it was something I noted in passing months ago).|
Alec Turner: Star is large in sky and surface is nice to drive on but it lacks major features (plenty of small craters but no major ravines or mountains). Base has a security perimiter and is not landable. No other POI's.

|Alioth||3 C A||Rocky||475||2983||0.05||82||2299||Florenus: binary moon with view of nearby gas giant, silicate vapour geysers, not bad looking|
|Synuefe xo-p c22-17||D 3||Rocky||642||4031.76||0.09||578||212326||Florenus: Binary planet, Silicate vapour geysers and Brain Trees. Surface not as interesting as 3Ca in the same system, but smaller and better lit.|

|26 Draconis||A 1 a||Rocky||698||4383.44||0.08||46.28||747.92||Tannik Seldon: Main draw here is some really spectacular (but traversible) canyon systems. There's an unlandable outpost as well. Not sure how many surface sites, but it claims some form of volcanism is present. I think we've seen better, overall, but the canyons are cool.||https://imgur.com/a/NhzNHa1|
