Fall of Heptapyrgion
Late in 997.M41, all traffic to and from the penal colony on Heptapyrgion in the Calixis Sector abruptly ceased, coincident with a visit by an Imperial Navy frigate, the “HHN Accordance”, bearing an warranted Imperial representative on some unknown mission.
It is not known just what caused the purge and subsequent abandonment of the colony, as all surviving guards and prisoners have entered the service of the same representative, and are bound by an oath of secrecy.
Soon after, the structure itself was salvaged by by representatives of a faction of the Adeptus Mechanicus, apparently under contract.
