The Rukbat Oort Cloud was a nebulous asteroid belt in the Sagittarian sector, and the sixth of its kind discovered by Castor's EEC team. The one in the Rukbat system also contained the voracious organism known as Thread. Particles of this cloud, including Thread, were dragged by the Red Star when it passed through it every 250 years.
