The Hegen Hub was a binary star system with no habitable planets. Because it had four useful wormholes in its vicinity, three of which connected to other highly-connected regions of the wormhole Nexus, many ships traversed it. Each wormhole was guarded by a space station belonging to the planetary government that was directly reachable on the other side.
The four systems that abutted the Hegen Hub were:
- Pol, which then connected out to Komarr
- Vervain, which connected to Mu Ceta of the Cetagandan Empire
- Aslund, which was a cul-de-sac
- Jackson's Whole, which had a great many outward connections.
