The Archimedes was a passenger ship that was struck by a hail of micro meteors on its way to Alpha Centurai, resulting in the loss of seven hundred passengers and crew. In 2159, Chris "Hoop" Hooper was reminded of the disaster, and several other similar ones, when the Delilah collided with his ship, the DSMO Marion, and he saw the corpse of one of the ship's crew in space.[1]
