Ross 128 is an average red dwarf star which is notable only due to its relative closeness to the Sun. It is also a flare star but its outbursts are rarer than other flare stars as the star is more evolved than others of its type. Life around any flare star would be highly unlikely due to the massive amounts of lethal X-rays released whenever the star flares

In Frontier, Ross 128 is notable for housing a huge prison complex on the planet of Grant's Claim.
