In 2535, Lieutenant Jacob Keyes escorted Habitat Exodus to this colony using the UNSC Midsummer Night. The Exodus asteroid then disintegrated and its debris created a navigational hazard around the planet, which according to experts would take years to deorbit and burn up. Following the evacuation of the surviving Rubble population from Exodus, they were placed in refugee camps across Falaknuma. Ignatio Delgado later enlisted in the UNSC Navy in Halkia, Falaknuma.
The colony is likely named for Falaknuma Palace, one of the finest palaces in Hyderabad, India.
