Thynome is the lone gas giant in the Wolf-Reiser system. It has a secret Terran Research Station in the orbit.


  • Main research of the Voids' nature are developed at the Thynome station by the Deep Science project.
  • Keith T. Maxwell was heard referring to this station as "his second home".
  • In and around Thynome station, there are no fighters flying around, not even friendly Terran fighters. This may be due to the fact that Thynome itself is coded not to spawn any fighters. It could also be considered that the player is allowed to reach the station at a somewhat low level, and if reached a poor reputation with Terrans, the player could be killed en route to a story-important station.
  • Sometimes, but rarely, there are Void attacks on Thynome. A main cause of this would be wormhole openings.
  • After the Supernova Add-on is installed, the Deep Science Systems Thynome and Kothar get their own unique soundtrack.
  • At the end of the base game Carla leaves Keith a note saying that the Deep Science Team has moved to another Secure location (Kothar).
  • Thynome is the best place to sell Organs other than Loma.
  • If you have poor reputation with the Terrans, when you try to dock, you will have to bribe the security officer even though the station is story dependent.
  • Sometimes, you spawn here in GOF2 Lite. You're supposed to spawn in Io Ombak.
  • There was once a mission in which a Space Lounge occupant asks you to have a wager mission to see who can kill more pirates. That is probably the main reason you might see a pirate ship (other than your own) around Thynome. Sometimes, however, pirates might appear. This is usually very rare and probably only one ship will be present.
  • This is the place for mining Blue plasma because there are no pirates. 
  • Stealth fighters can sometimes be seen here during the Supernova  storyline.
  • This is a very good place to sell organs and buy implants, if you do not have Valkyrie. Sell the implants at Pan and buy organs there, then travel back.
  • With a tech level of 10 you will find high priced cargo and equipment on Thynome
  • This is the largest Terran station (aside from Kanado).
