The war with Aliens hit the Jericho systems — Iridium Haul was almost completely demolished. The system used to house numerous warehouses and a Jericho outpost. Aliens dealt a sudden and powerful blow to the system, and all the structures as well as the outpost were destroyed. Everyone present in the zone at the time of attack is either dead or missing. Currently, there is also a significant Biomorph presence. This area is considered particularly dangerous, but it's part of the shortest and cheapest transport routes.
