The Greenwater Nebula is a region of space located in the Near South Arm.

Characteristics

The Greenwater Nebula is roughly 13,000 light-years in diameter. When Vaikan astronomers first discovered it, false color images made it look like a verdant green lake, hence the name "Greenwater".

There are no known garden planets in the nebula. The proximity of the Galactic Core makes the radiation of the area much too high to sustain most carbon-based life forms.

Much of the Greenwater Nebula was former territory to the Confederacy of Greenwater before being taken over by gangs and petty dictatorships. The crime rate is a major problem, and piracy is extremely common. Interstellar space in the region is designated as galactic wilderness - those travelling within it are not subject to government protection or bound by any laws.
