The Archimedes was a Remote Scanning Outpost located on the edge of the Sigma Octanus system, designed to detect incoming threats to the system. It was crewed by three individuals, including Ensign William Lovell.
On July 17, 2552, the Archimedes detected a large mass in Slipspace. ENS Lovell believed that it was simply a large asteroid and did not investigate further. However, it turned out to be a hostile Covenant naval formation inbound for Commander Jacob Keyes' Battle Group. Because of this incident, Ensign Lovell was transferred to the UNSC Iroquois by CDR Keyes.
- Archimedes was a Greek mathematician, philosopher, and inventor who came up with many scientific and mathematical contributions that are still in use today. For example, he derived the formula of a circle without the use of calculus and discovered the length of extremely large real-world objects through use of trigonometry.
