An abandoned settlement can be found on the nearby planet Plaa Aec RY-B b41-1 2 b at 50.9203, -155.0895.

Around the settlement there are four Settlement Comms Log Uplink points, scanning them gives background to the reason for its abandonment:

HAWKIN’S GAP DELTA MISSION 1/4
Expedition Log: 30/08/3270

“This is a bigger operation than I thought it was. A massive fleet of Anacondas all prepped for long endurance travel out to the edge of beyond. No ships have markings, no emblems, no political affiliation. Somebody with deep pockets must be paying for this, but who ?”

HAWKIN’S GAP DELTA MISSION 2/4
Expedition Log: 12/09/3270

“Judging by the way the fleet deployed I would say there were three main destinations, all a long way outside of the core worlds. We got our orders today, we’re making for a zone called “Hawkin’s Gap”. It’s a seriously long way, not even the explorers have been out this way before. Strange mission.”

HAWKIN’S GAP DELTA MISSION 3/4
Expedition Log: 18/09/3270

“Our little armada split up today, so we’re on our own now. Just us and the void. Still a lot of speculations as to what we’re doing. Cargo hold is full, that I don’t know. My guess is some kind of deep space survey, but I can’t figure out why we’d need to be so far out …”

HAWKIN’S GAP DELTA MISSION 4/4
Expedition Log: 01/10/3270

“Cargo is being deployed. A series of artefacts of some kind. The handling bods aren’t part of the ship’s crew, so we don’t know what they’re doing. Captain has told us to turn a blind eye and wait for them to be done.”

There are Engineer Materials scattered around the ground.
