Capella was the site of the Skirmish at Capella between the UNSC Gorgon and insurrectionist forces in May 2502. The skirmish resulted in the deaths of thirty-two crew members of the Gorgon and damages which required a month laid up in space dock to repair.
During the Human-Covenant War on October 21, 2526, the Alpha Aurigae system was invaded by the Covenant. Admiral Cole's fleet responded, defeating the Covenant fleet in the Origami Asteroid Field within the system, but sustaining heavy casualties in the battle. Capella's fate remains unknown.
Preston Cole was known to occasionally enjoy vodka produced on the colony.
