Construction Platform 966A, alternatively nicknamed Station Delphi, was a deep space UNSC shipyard and construction platform. It was similar to refitting stations like the Cradle. Essentially, it is a massive plate of Titanium-A containing a floating city of welded scaffolding cranes, docking pods, tubes, and grappling claws.[1]

The station was decommissioned in 2528 and abandoned in orbit over an icy moon in the Groombridge 34 system. Due to poor maintenance, the platform was a mess by 2531. That year, ONI arranged for the Spartan-IIs to be sent on a mission to the station to check for any "rebel activity." This was actually a guise for them to abduct Kurt-051 for use in the upcoming SPARTAN-III Program.[2] After he was taken, the station was tagged with a HAZNAV satellite to ward off future exploration of it.

The station had a hull-support cradle built specifically for the stealth cruiser UNSC Point of No Return.[1] The fact that this construction was relatively recent by the time Blue Team investigated the station may suggest that the station being abandoned was in actuality a cover so that the station could possibly be used to service the top-secret Point of No Return in an inconspicuous location.
