The station orbited Reach during the Fall of Reach in August 2552. During Operation: UPPER CUT, the station was used by SPARTAN-B312 and Jorge-052 to arm a slipspace drive as an improvised bomb against Long Night of Solace. After Long Night of Solace was destroyed by the bomb, another Covenant fleet arrived near Anchor 9. The station was likely destroyed shortly after its arrival.[1]
