Argelander is an important NoCoZo system, 220 light years from Sol, in the innermost part of the Middle Regions. The shipyards of Argelander are famous, and a nanoscale-accurate replica of the ancient starship Starlark is a popular tourist attraction.

In 2870 Vaneld Stellar Engineering AG launched a long range mission to Gamma-2 Velorum (Regor) which arrived shortly before that star went supernova.

The strange Christian sect that worships Jesus the Borg was founded here in 3008.
