The Coreless Moon orbited Ithacae 3 in the Ithacae System, located inside the Azure Nebula. As of March in 2381, it was unknown what caused its destruction. Archaeological evidence on the moon suggests that it was once a colony for a people called the "Lightborn", with subterranean ruins that have remained inaccessible due to the requirement of certain wavelength light emissions to gain entry.

It is unknown when the evident destruction of the moon took place, but sometime before the Federation-Klingon Neutral Zone was raised un 2285, the Klingons established a mining outpost called SuD Lang on the moon, which once had an abundance of dilithium. Evidence suggest that with the remaining dilithium stored on the outpost, it was supposed to serve as a supply depot for the Klingon Empire in the event of a new war with the Federation.

Subsequent investigation by the away team sent by the USS Theurgy in March of 2381 revealed that the mining outpost of SuD Lang was built on top of an ancient ruin constructed by the Radiants centuries ago during a xenophobic time in their history. The away team reported that the ruins held an artificial intelligence and a one shot "doomsday weapon" that destroyed the IKS Hakkarl.
