This nebula has been identified on side quests (I put all priority missions on standby ... ironically) so that I don't miss out on any content. Is this a case of a galaxy just not being available until the main plot line catches up?

How far do I have to progress to open these up?

The two IGN articles on them say that you gain access to them after the Priority: Thessia mission near the end of the game, so yes it looks like you need to progress through the main plot line to get them.


Priority Rannoch, I know this from personal experience

    you mean by prioritizing the Rannoch mission because after it The galaxy will be available?

The Cyone system within the Silean Nebula is available fairly early in the game. But there are systems within the Silean Nebula (Phontes and Teyolia -- maybe others) that do not become available until after Priority: Rannoch. I've just completed Priority: Rannoch and Hades Nexus is not yet showing on up the Galaxy Map.


Full Silean Nebula is available after Priority: Rannoch, while Hades Nexus seems to be after Priority: Thesia
