The Algernon Reach is a region of space far beyond the Perseus Veil that holds a collection of star systems. The Algernon Reach is full of abnormal cosmic bodies and strange life forms that have adapted and lived for even longer than the asari. The Reach in itself is a very dangerous yet secretive place. Locating the Algernon Relay that brings a ship to the vast region is difficult but leaving once you make it in is even harder. Not much is known about the region except that it is abundant with Element Zero which has unbalancing effects on worlds, life, and entire stars.
