The Tamsa system is the most recent addition to the United Empire of Earth (UEE) and contains two planets in orbit around a black hole. It was discovered in 2943 by Banu explorer Cothi Bat-Thel-Ma, who named it after visual artist Tamsa Wheel. Currently, the system is unavailable to the public while UEE surveyors assess the system as required by the Fair Chance Act.

Located near the fringe of Banu space, Tamsa System features a massive central star that has collapsed into a black hole. Evidence suggests that there were at least two more planets in the system when the star collapsed before the ensuing black hole engulfed them. Only two planets remain in the system, a chthonian world and a gas giant located far from the black hole's event horizon. Initial surveys indicate that the two outer planets are slowly being pulled towards the black hole, leaving the two as a risky proposition at best for any sort of colonization.[1]
