It looks like Beta Niobe is staying off the Traveller Map, so it’s going to be dropped off of my sector map, as well.
A shame, but I understand the decision. It’s best to stick with the Atlas of the Imperium, so at least we all know where all the stars are – and where they aren’t!
While it failed to make the cut, it’s still located in Empty Quarter hex 2825, and it still exist in the Stellar Reaches chronicles.
Bye for now, Beta Niobe! Say hi to Pluto for me!
Postscript: Actually, it’s worse than this: there just isn’t anything so bright so close to Antares.
I’m not going to go through the back issues of Stellar Reaches to remove all the references, as the first reference is actually Jeff M. Hopper’s article in Stellar Reaches #7. But from now on, Stellar Reaches #19 and following, Beta Niobe is going to be dropped down the memory hole.
