So, would this ring of debris make a good place for us to hide the ship?
I don't think so.
First, most of the debris is small or gaseous, and wouldn't hide our ship from any kind of active scanning.
Second, the company will probably mutiny if you don't let them get some fresh air on the nice, habitable planet.
There's a planet that supports life? You didn't say anything about a planet!
You got hung up on the color of melange before I could get to it, sir.
Besides, there's always a planet.
