New Pacific Arcology
From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
The New Pacific Arcology is a location on Titan. It was once one of the great cities of the Golden Age, but was evacuated and abandoned during the Collapse. Over the centuries, the decaying ruins have begun sinking into the moon's methane oceans and have recently become infested with Hive.
The Golden Age
A great construct of the Golden Age, the arcologies of Titan were hubs dedicated to the scientific study of the moon and the unique lifeforms that lay in its methane seas. The New Pacific Arcology was no different, being built atop an ice sheet over the Kraken Mare in Titan's north polar region. New Pacific facilities included agriculture, zero waste recycling, and even an academy of higher education offering degrees relevant to science and engineering on Titan. Its scientific endeavors included one expedition to drill into Titan's hypothesized subsurface water ocean, which was cut short with the coming of the Collapse.
During the Collapse, the Darkness attacked Titan by creating a moon-wide tidal wave and seismic event which badly damaged the arcologies, the New Pacific Arcology included. An evacuation was in progress when the Collapse began and it's currently unknown how many, if any, made it out alive.
The Red War
After the fall of the Last City, Commander Zavala and Deputy Commander Sloane fled to the New Pacific Arcology with other surviving Guardians, hoping to use it as a base from which to launch a counterattack against the Red Legion. However, they were stymied by the Hive infestation. Without access to the Light, Zavala's group lacked the power to exterminate the Hive themselves. Adding to the grim situation, scavengers from the Fallen House of Dusk followed the Guardians to Titan and have established a beachhead, using the towers as junkyards. However, this changed following The Guardian's arrival. After fighting through hive and fallen to secure a control center, reactivating the power generators and obtaining a CPU from the arcology's depths, they were finally able to begin planning their counterattack. Much of the Vanguard left the arcology and sought a new base at The Farm, with only Sloane remaining behind.
Much later, when the Black Fleet arrived in the system, a Pyramid arrived on the arcology's surface. This prompted Eris Morn and The Drifter to attempt to harvest the darkness from smaller pyramids which had been seen touching down on the arcology. However, Savathûn, the Witch Queen dispatched platoons of Taken to the arcology to interrupt this ritual, resulting in a vicious battle between the guardians and the Taken and Hive. Eventually, the entire moon of Titan vanished leaving the fate of those aboard the arcology uncertain.
