The Babd Catha Ice Shelf.

The Babd Catha Ice Shelf was an ice shelf located in Eposz on the human colony world of Reach.[1] An Office of Naval Intelligence facility known as "Sword Base" was located near Babd Catha and was the site of a battle between the United Nations Space Command and the Covenant Empire during the Fall of Reach on July 26, 2552.


  • In Irish mythology, Babd Catha was a war goddess who took the form of a crow and was said to cause fear and confusion in the enemy while turning the tide of battle.
