That lovable bunch of a-holes known as the Guardians of the Galaxy made a huge splash when they entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe with their debut film in 2014, and continued skyrocketing to stardom in 2017 with director James Gunn's follow up film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. In both films, Gunn managed to sneak in some super subtle details, Easter eggs, and foreshadowing that MCU fans are still discovering to this day.

    This, combined with other location titles provided a hint for the plot of the second film, outlined by Redditor u/TheYordleGunner:

    It's supposed to be combined together with messages from the other location titles:

    EARTH 1988

    1988 = SHH

    and

    KNOWHERE M3RD17H 17211+21212 24

    M3RD17H 17211+21212 24 = MERDITH QULLL (E)X

    So the full message reads "SHH... THIS IS MOMS CANCER... MEREDITH QUILL (E)X". It's not connected to The Dark Aster but rather just a combined Easter egg/hint for the next movie.
