This article is about the freighter named Laden. For the Laden-class freighter, see Laden-class freighter.
The independent freighter Laden was a simple freighter with routes in the outer colonies and was captained by a man thought to have been killed during Operation: TREBUCHET. In 2525, several SPARTAN-IIs boarded the Laden and went to the Eridanus II docks. They later fulfilled a mission to capture Colonel Robert Watts the leader of the Eridanus Rebels inside of the Eridanus secundus rebel base, located in the Eridanus asteroid belt, after the Laden inadvertently ferried them there.
