Nagasaki is the capital and the largest city of Nagasaki Prefecture in Japan. On 9 August 1945, it became the second city in the world to be destroyed by an atomic bomb, an event which ended World War II.
When the city of Harbin fell to the Race, Flight Leader Teerts, who was a prisoner of the Japanese, was transferred to the city of Nagasaki.
While there he was interrogated by Dr. Yoshio Nishina about nuclear weapons. While trying to lead them astray, he accidently helped them along. The embarrassing blunder made him wish that a plutonium bomb would fall on the city, but doubted the odds of that ever happening.
