The Groombridge 1830 system is a Unified Earth Government-colonized star system, located 29.7 light-years from Sol.[1] The colony world of Groombridge-1830 is located in the system.[2] It was invaded on December 24, 2530 by the Covenant. Admiral Preston Cole's fleet responded, destroying the Covenant fleet, but taking heavy casualties during the battle. The colony's fate, whether it was glassed or not, and the state of any survivors, is unknown.[3]
