Attacks on BlueSky station “Longbow” by its owners, a long-forgotten budding megacorp, leave the station abandoned—inhabitable, but unmarketable. Laterals who wish to live a feral lifestyle colonize it later, creating a grotto that sensationalist media would feature for decades: a lawless predatory paradise or nightmarish drifting station of horrors, red in tooth and claw.

Date: 650 AE, estimated. The Longbow grotto was “many decades ago” according to HSD1.0p.57.
