- “There are a number of penitentiaries whose reputations precede them—whose very names strike fear in the hearts of the state's enemies. This facility wasn't one of them. Midnight wasn't about reforming criminals; it was about making them disappear.”
Midnight was a top-secret prison facility operated by the Office of Naval Intelligence in the 26th century. It was intended to house high-profile political prisoners who the organization preferred to make disappear rather than execute or rehabilitate.
Midnight was located in an asteroid field.
