Default Orionis cluster

According to the INAP article (Challenge Magazine #34), the INAP nations planned to explore the AC+12 1800-213 (Ross 47) and DM-21 1051 (Donner 91) systems, hoping to open up a new area of the galaxy for exploration and colonization, namely the Orionis cluster.

The previous surveys show 6 promising stars in 4 systems, all reachable without using stutterwarp tug technology. All starts from AC+12 1800-213, a system surveyed by the INAP, however, the closest colonial world is Austin's World, 1 system away; the Brazilian outpost on DM-21 1377 and Ross 614 are just 2 systems away; Montana also is just 2 systems away, but Argentineans and Mexicans must pass thru DM-3 1123, letting know their activities to the Texans; The Brazilians can avoid to pass thru Austin's World and use the LP-658-2 system.

While the direct link with DM-21 1051 doesn't exist, a direct link between AC+12 1800-213 and Pi3 Orionis does, via LP 476-207 (Steph 538) without tugs. Pi3 Orionis, an F type star, links directly with DM-5 1123, a K type star, this star links with via 2 stars with DM-21 1051, which connects with Gamma Leporis, a binary system with F and K type stars. Back to Pi3 Orionis, it connects via GJ 1087 with Chi1 Orionis, a binary system with G and M type stars.

Imagine the race between Argentina-Mexico and Brazil-Texas for those probably habitable worlds, or even a new alien race in one of those 4 systems, not counting the M type stars systems.

thoughts?
