Groombridge 34 system
The Groombridge 34 system is a binary star system of two red dwarf stars situated 11.7 light years from Earth. It was the resting place of Construction Platform 966A after the station was supposedly decommissioned over an icy moon in the system circa 2531. It was here that Kurt-051 went missing after a ruptured Shaw-Fujikawa Translight Engine caused his thruster pack to malfunction during a mission to investigate rebel activity on the platform. Despite exhaustive search efforts from the frigate UNSC Tannenberg and prowler Circumference, they were unable to find him. In reality, Kurt had been picked up by the stealth cruiser UNSC Point of No Return as part of a cover-up orchestrated by Colonel James Ackerson and the Office of Naval Intelligence in order to recruit him to train the SPARTAN-IIIs.
