Olmedreca was abandoned on the eve of the destruction of Vavatch during the Idiran-Culture War. The hull was breached by a nuclear warhead. The ship remained afloat but the breach caused its course to curve toward the Edgewall.
Kraiklyn's Free Company attempted to raid the abandoned ship for its bow lasers. The effort was cut short when the ship collided with an immense iceberg. The forward kilometre of the hull was destroyed or buried inside and there was further damage from the nuclear device detonated by Lamm. The Company evacuated before the police arrived.
