The Vortex Prime System lies in the Crimson Quadrant and is Confed controlled at the start of the game. However it directly borders Pirate territory, so it often changes hands several times during the course of the game. If piloting a weak ship (e.g. starting Tarsus) check who's in charge before jumping there.
Vortex Prime is notable for having jump points to eight other systems. As such, it is a common waypoint when travelling through the quadrant.
