Meet our new third-closest (sub-)stellar system - it's a BD binary about 2pc from Sol! http://science.psu.edu/news-and-events/ ... hman3-2013
Interestingly it really changes the realistic 2300AD starmap. Before the only way to get from Sol to nearby stars was via a specific route from Sol to Barnard's Star to Ross 154 to AX Microscopii, and from there other stars were accessible. This Binary provides a "backdoor" out of the Sol system - now you can get directly from Sol via the BD Binary to Lacaille 9352, or YZ Ceti, or Tau Ceti, or Epsilon Eridani, or Gliese 1061!!
