Kellinan Reach, Bright Star Cluster: An Overview
The Bright Star Cluster is the only region of space explored by the UFP in the Kellinan Reach. The cluster it's self is a group of stars in their early stages of life and most are very bright, hence the origins of it's name. Federation exploration of the Cluster have involved little more than surveys except in the three colony systems. In fact all of the Federation's knowledge of the region comes from surveys conducted by the USS Brisbane, long range scans by the USS Indomitable (dispatched to deal with 'territorial disputes' between an Akasha War-ark and the Prospero Colony) and from contact with the local warp capable aliens. The end result being it is an area that no one in the Federation is particularly sure of.
