Milky Way / Voyager Cluster
Location: Milky Way / Voyager Cluster
The Voyager Cluster may derive its name from the Voyager program, a space probe program. It is also possible, given that all of the systems in the cluster are apparently named for rivers, that the name is derived from the French term voyageur, a licensed French fur trader in 17th and 18th century North America; in the era before roads, they frequently used rivers for travel and shipment of goods.
Cerberus has a substantial presence within this cluster, on planets that are otherwise deserted and thus go unnoticed. At least four bases, complete with troops and defenses, have been established in the region at the time of Shepard's travels in 2183, and the area was the site of the construction of the Normandy SR-2.
