Sidewinder Colony was a wildcat mining operation on Vericae in the Vallhalan Threshold cluster of the Terminus. It functioned from 2132 to 2168, at which point the colony was overwhelmed by a local slaver gang and gutted by looters.

Ruins of the buildings remain at its initial site, including several towers, sleeping quarters, a processing plant, and an orphanage at which Cerberus Daily News poster Whiteout, AKA Cerastes, was raised for seven years.
