Default The Abyssals

In the original T5 book and cd - not in the 5.09 pdf - there is a galactic map that labels various regions of the galaxy.
The Essaray are there and so are the Abyssals (go to the Traveller map and zoom all the way out).

In his interview at TravellerCon - available of youtube thanks to Jon Brazer Enterprizes - MWM mentions the Abyssals and fills in some details.

They sound a lot like the Pentapod 'gods' from T2300 except they are not intelligent. Some of the 'bullets' (again borrowing from T2300 terminology) are intelligent and are responsible for the technological development and exploration of their part of the galaxy.
The beauty of CT LBB1-3 is that the ref is free to make such decisions for themselves.
