Sometime before 2010 the planet was colonized by the People of Novus after they discovered their home planet was becoming uninhabitable due to a black hole. At least thirty years before Destiny arrived at the planet, most of the population from Novus fled to the planet through the Stargate before it was lost in a lava flow.
