The Epsilon Eridani Disaster was a major disaster in the early days of human overdrive flight.

An overdrive capable ship failed to drop out of overdrive in time and flew directly into a small planetoid in orbit of the star that several dozen people were involved in a mining opertion. The crash destroyed the planetoid and killed the miners and those on the ship.

An investigation proved that the pilot failed to address where the planetoid would be when they dropped from overdrive. The disaster became a touch point for future pilots as a warning of what can happen.
