“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 Facility 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.[1]


Midnight was located in an asteroid field.[1]


In 2558, Benjamin Giraud was imprisoned at Midnight Facility after a failed attempt to expose ONI's cover-up of the horrible truth of the SPARTAN-II Program.[1]
