Farragut Station, also known as Farragut Outpost, was a small communications outpost near Sword Base on the Babd Catha Ice Shelf on Reach.


Initial Battle[]

Main article: Battle of Sword Base

On July 26, 2552, Kat-B320 and SPARTAN-B312 were ordered to reactivate the COM array at Farragut Station to contact UNSC Command. A small Covenant force containing a Revenant was occupying the station at that time.[1]


Between August 14th and August 29, Covenant forces occupying Sword Base built a defensive position at Farragut Station. This position contained multiple Shade Turrets, a Deployable lookout tower and a pair of Ghosts. It was manned by a group of Grunts led by a single Sniper Jackal. Ice shelf melting flooded Farragut and the direct path from Sword Base to the Station.[2]

UNSC Return[]

On August 29, SPARTAN-B312 and a team of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers once again passed through Farragut Station whilst on a mission to destroy the nearby Sword Base. However, by this time the station had been flooded due to icemelt from Covenant activity, leaving only the rooftops above water. The team destroyed the Covenant defensive position before moving on toward the objective.[2]
