History[edit]

Human colonisation and expansion[edit]

Cygnus was one of two habitable worlds in the system colonized by the Unified Earth Government, the other being New Jerusalem.[1]

Human-Covenant war[edit]

In 2550, a colony ship traveling to Cygnus suffered a catastrophic slipspace malfunction due to its improperly mounted slipspace drive. When the drive was activated, the ship was cut in half and 700 crew and passengers were killed.[3]

Post-war[edit]

After the Human-Covenant War, fetcher Oliver Birch was intending to deliver a "saddle box" slipspace drive to an ONI agent, Steve, on Cygnus.[4]
