"[T]his place is...it doesn't have a name. We called it A-113."
—Arach of the Sophia[1]

A-113 was a small space station dating to the Golden Age in stationary orbit above Ceres.[1]

History[edit]

The station's purpose is unknown, as any records of its existence did not survive the Collapse, but it contains "keyholes" that seemingly led to other dimensions and drive those who enter them to madness or worse. There is also an "eye" located in there.[1] The station was rediscovered by Dead Orbit who gave it its current designation and kept it a secret from the Tower.[1] Sixty one days later a subsequent expedition there ended in failure: an Awoken ship from the Reef crippled the expedition's ship, the Sophia, and exploration of A-113 rendered most of the crew insane. The crew's Arach found a faded Ghost on the station and sent it back to the City with a request that Dead Orbit strike A-113 and the expedition from their records.[1]

The station was likely destroyed when the Awoken Harbingers obliterated Ceres and the gathered House of Wolves.[2][3] Whether or not the Wolves ever discovered the station remains to be seen.

Trivia[edit]

  • A113 (sometimes A-113 or A1-13) is an inside joke, an Easter egg in works created by alumni of the California Institute of the Arts, referring to the classroom used by graphic design and character animation students. [4]
