Typhon XI was considered remote by terrans and its sparse mineral deposits made it a poor candidate for colonization. Nonetheless, a sizable Tal'darim force was present on the world.

The fires started by the impending stellar catastrophe forced the Raiders to continually relocate their base, but they managed to escape with the artifact before the supernova hit them.
