El Dorado Drift is a drift near High Guard Station GS-92196. The Andromeda Ascendant stopped there for parts and other supplies; the crew was also looking forward to receiving mail and news when they docked. Shortly after the Andromeda docked, she received news of a class 7 Solar Storm that would arrive in 5 days. She left in the nick of time.
The Andromeda wanted parts from the drift to resupply and repair herself, however her currency was not current and the crew had to sell nonessential parts from all over the ship, such as the Andromeda Ascendant Ceremonial China.
- The name refers to that of the fabled "Lost City of Gold" which the Spanish conquistadors sought for so long.
