Exodus Project scare
By 2535 a large asteroid led by the UNSC Midsummer Night loaded with over a million refugees from behind Covenant lines was approaching near the system worrying the crew of the UNSC Ready or Not that it may have been Covenant. It was not till the asteroid arrived that the crew stopped worrying and began a rescue effort.
Battle of 18 Scorpii
It was also the site of a minor engagement between UNSC and Covenant forces in 2543, in which UNSC forces were saved by a surprise force of independent/Insurrectionist ships.
