A star system, or planetary system, is a system of planets and other objects that orbit a star.

Summary[edit | edit source]

These procedurally generated systems are the seat of all planets and worlds in the game. Most of the planetary systems in No Man's Sky will most likely never be visited.

Classification[edit | edit source]


There are four colours of star system, each categorised by a letter.

  • Yellow star systems are the most common and begin with F or G.
  • Red star systems begin with M or K, and can only be accessed with Warp Reactor Sigma.
  • Green star systems begin with E and can only be accessed with Warp Reactor Tau.
  • Blue star systems begin with O or B, and can only be accessed with Warp Reactor Theta.

Each star system has a number from 0-9, and a final code of f, p, pf or blank.

Classification Exceptions[edit | edit source]

Not all star systems are distinguishable according to spectral class, including star systems containing:

Star systems containing these objects are classified according to the specific object they contain, rather than the star's spectral class.

Concentration of star systems[edit | edit source]

It is possible to find a concentration of star systems in the galaxy. Those concentration are very rare and have a colorful blur. It is unknown if those stars are any different from the standard. Multiple blue, red and green stars can be found in those.
