Capital of the Cooperative Venture - a number of Networked civilizations studying relics from lost alien civilizations. Approx 158ly from Skiiws'nnii.

Avensis is located in the Serpens Region, a volume which was isolated from the rest of Terragen Sphere for several millenia. For this reason many of the archaeological paradigms that exist in the Cooperative Venture are very different from those in the Eden Institute of Xenoscience and the Hamilton Institute.
