Blackbird was a moon of the gas giant Uriel, the sixth planet of the Yeltsin's Star System.[1]

It was the location of the Masadan Navy's Blackbird Base, a secret military complex that remained unnoticed by the Protectorate of Grayson until 1903 PD, when it was taken by the Manticoran and Grayson Space Navy in the Battle of Blackbird. (HH2)

Steadholder Honor Harrington later had the Blackbird Yard, a large naval shipyard, constructed in orbit of the moon. (HH8) It was destroyed by the Mesan Alignment's Operation Oyster Bay in 1922 PD. (HH12)
