Alpha Pavonis VII is a Noble World in the Alpha Pavonis star system. Located on the planet's surface is the wreck of an Ur-Quan Dreadnought. The Dreadnought had been severely damaged in a battle with a Kohr-Ah Marauder in Thraddash space. Lacking full navigational control, the Dreadnought tumbled through space and eventually crash-landed on the seventh planet orbiting Alpha Pavonis. In an unusual event the Dreadnought did not self-annihilate, but in fact seems to have used its engines to soften the crash such that the wreck remained largely above ground and not buried in a crater. The Arilou actually observed the crash on a "reconnaissance" mission and retrieved the only survivor, a Talking Pet. The Captain can also visit the planet to retrieve the starboard Warp Pod from the wreckage, a necessary component for the QuasiSpace Portal Spawner.
