no it's not. I gave a plausible explanation for that once.
It went like this:
There were three jumpnodes from sol (as depicted in FS1 nodemap). However those 2 others were far less stable (i.e. minor nodes) than the main one (the one the Lucifer used).
After the Lucifer collapsed, all three nodes went with it. But there were some diffences though. The 2 minor ones dissappeared/became so unstable that they no longer showed up on sensors (or wathever). The main node became unstable but was still visible on sensors (as an unstable node ofcourse).
This gives you an explanation why there are 3 nodes in FS1 and only 1 in FS2 while staying completely withing the Freespace Universe logic.
It also explaines why the Sol-Delta Serpentis node would be used to construct a Knossos portal and not one of the other nodes...
I know there are a lot of 'errors' around, but it is more interesting to find an explanation that is plausible to explain why something is there at one point and gone the next... Explaining entire solar systems away is, of course, impossible
