Re: EpDis: The Ragged Edge

Well I'm only guessing, but I see the beacon system as being very similar to our road signs.Some tell you where you are going and which turn to take to navigate to a certain area of space, others tell you you have arrived at the system you want to go to. It must work something like that because we know that there has to be something spaced out communicating with a network (they rigged a similar system with starfuries, to rescue the Cortez).

So with this in mind... with the Markab beacon gone, you'd probably still be able to approximate the system's location from the remaining beacons... but tech stealers without access to an expensive ship with jump engines of it's own... wouldn't be able to do their grave robbing so easily.
