Constructive criticism is welcome.

SpaceCowboy2013 made the original storyline for this, and I'm planning on finishing this fight.

As I'm editing this on 6/28/2020, I've decided to use the corrected scale for UNSC ships detailed in watch?v=CH1STi9thUc. Covenant/Sword of Sanghelios designs get scaled up by 2.65 as well, but the CSO-Class will only be 39KM in length. Star Wars ships stay the same

Disney owns Star Wars, Microsoft owns Halo, that is all.

Enjoy

Timeline

2050 - As space travel becomes as common as air travel and the Moon becomes covered in settlements, the four superpowers of the Earth, the United States, EU, People's Republic of China and the Russian Federation, along with the smaller space faring Nations of United Korea, Iran, Japan, India, Australia, Brazil, Argentina, and Egypt agree to form a single scientific body to explore and colonize the Solar system. These nations' space agencies are combined into one, headed under the United Nations and is coined the UNCA, the United Nations Colonial Administration.

2051 - With the Earth's population reaching 12 billion and still rising, the UNCA begins to terraform Mars, Saturn's Moons, and the Jovian moons, including Europa. The first orbital elevator begins construction and is finished in five years by the UNCA in Hawaii allowing massive amounts of raw materials to be moved into space. Another four elevators begin construction shortly after the completion of the Hawaiian tether, one in Cuba, one in Peru, Malaysia, and Mombasa, Kenya.

2069 - Mars is successfully terraformed into a lush green world with several large oceans and dozens of seas, rivers, and lakes. The great colonization begins, with millions of people settling the Martian surface and the first cities begin to appear. Extensive mining of the Asteroid belt begins.

2085 - With Earth's population rapidly still rising and the production of food and resources struggling to catch up, the four major superpowers ramp up cooperation through the UN. Artificial gravity is perfected and the technology soon revolutionizes space travel, allowing long trips to be undertaken without bone and muscle deterioration.

2095 - Hundreds of floating cities are built in Venus's upper atmosphere, allowing millions of colonists to settle there. The Population of Mars reaches 1 Billion and the total Human population throughout the Sol system reaches 20 billion. The UN and UNCA realize that the Human race must expand outside the Sol system, research into Faster Than Light travel begins.

2115 - Conflict sparks throughout the Sol system when a neo-Fascist movement, the Freiden, attack UN Colonial Advisors on Io, one of Jupiter's many moons. The Freiden also retaliate against their Communist counterparts, the Koslovics, after years of being targeted by them. This marks the beginning of the Interplanetary War. Fierce fighting on Earth, especially in the rainforests of South America, erupts between UN, Koslovic, and Freiden forces.

2116 - The UN and UNCA establish the UNSC, the United Nations Space Command, the military arm of the UN, to combat the separatist Freiden movement. The UNSC mobilizes a massive armada to combat the secessionist space forces. The Earth's orbit becomes militarized as defenses are constructed. Luna (Earth's Moon) and Venus are also fortified. Terrorist attacks supported by the Freiden and Koslovics all over the globe lead the rest of the nations of the world to found the United Earth Government, uniting all of the nations of the Earth for the first time in history.

2117 - The first major naval engagement between fleets in space takes place above Mars as the UNSC engages the Freiden and Koslovic Space Fleets in a heated three-way battle. Naval doctrine for the next several hundred years is defined above the Red Planet. The UNSC defeats the Freiden and Koslovic forces in several battles that last for months with thousands of casualties on each side. The UNSC regains control over the atmosphere of Mars, its orbital facilities, space ports, as well as the planet's orbital elevators. However, the Koslovic ground forces present on Mars had several ground to space laser batteries near Argyre Planitia, which were heavily defended and kept the UNSC from landing any substantial amount of troops. A UNSC Marine Lieutenant named Andrew White suggests that teams of elite marines be dropped from warships waiting in orbit behind enemy lines via Human Entry Vehicles, or HEV pods for Short.

The ODSTs are born.

2118 - During a lull in the war, the ODSTs were applied successfully on the battlefield and the Koslovic defense soon crumbled. The last remnants of resistance on Earth are crushed by the might of the UNSC, Mars is liberated soon after and the UNSC fleet, reinforced two fold, liberates the Jovian moons and the moons of Saturn. The Interplanetary War comes to a close after the Callisto Treaty, in which Freiden and Koslovic commanders surrender their arms to the UNSC.

2119 - The population of the Sol System booms after the Interplanetary War, which was much more devastating than the First and Second World War combined. This population boom, coupled with the famine caused by the rainforest campaigns on Earth, caused the next decade to be very difficult to live in.

2132 - Two brilliant scientists named Tobias Fleming Shaw and Wallace Fujikawa lead a team of engineers and theoretical physicists to develop Faster-Than-Light travel, to free Humanity from the Sol System. They draft up designs for the Shaw-Fujikawa Translight Engine. The drive is completed not long after. The Shaw-Fujikawa Translight Engine works by creating a wormhole between normal space and the alternate plane dubbed 'slipspace', also known as Shaw-Fujikawa space and slipstream space. The wormhole acts as a shortcut realm, allowing long distances to be covered in a reasonable amount of time. The UEG soon tests the drive on a UNSC Destroyer, the Columbia.

The Columbia makes a short jump across the Solar system, proving the drive works and that FTL has been achieved, but also that inter-system jumps can be dangerous as the Columbia is nearly trapped in the Oort Cloud.

2133 - The first probes equipped with a Shaw-Fujikawa drive reach one of the nearest star systems to Earth with a known terrestrial planet, Epsilon Eridani. The probes bring back images that shock Humanity, an Earth like planet.

2134 - The first interstellar colonization ships leave Sol, lead by a titanic colony ship, the Santa Maria, which is escorted by dozens of slipspace capable UNSC warships, and head for the Epsilon Eridani system with several hundred thousand colonists in tow. The trip takes three days but the fleet arrives and soon colonizes the planet, which is named:

Reach.

2140 - Colonization of the Alpha Centauri System takes place. The binary system's several rocky moons which orbit around a gas giant are terraformed, allowing Colonists to settle. The system is named Atlas'\. Its moons are named the same, being the Atlas Moons. The largest moon colony of which is called Pandora.

2150 - All of the systems with planetary bodies within forty light-years of Earth are colonized, creating the core of what would later be known as the Inner Colonies. Many systems like Epsilon Eridani have several colonies within them. The UNSC begins to have more control over the colonization efforts as more and more alien fossils are discovered on several planets, allowing many to agree that a large military is needed just in case the possible first contact goes wrong. Humanity soon controls over 100 planets and Reach becomes a military hub second only to Earth as the population of the planet exceeds a Billion. The total Human population reaches 40 Billion.

2200 - The first MAC (Magnetic Accelerator Cannon) is created for use in space combat, which accelerates a large slug using a linear system of magnetic fields coils down a long shaft, bringing the projectile to incredible speeds (although a MAC gun would not be fitted onto a UNSC vessel until much later during The Insurrection). Energy based weapons such as lasers become common and firearms technology has considerably advanced, to the point of using Gauss weaponry. Experimentation with Metal Storm technology stagnated for numerous reasons, including inability to create sufficient precision, accuracy, velocity, and sustainment of fire. The UNCA is reorganized into the Colonial Administration Authority, or CAA, with a new military arm, the Colonial Military Administration, or CMA. The Office of Naval Intelligence, or ONI, is also founded.

2321 - The ORION Project is initiated in order to create supersoldiers for the UNSC. Initial results were promising and the project led to the adoption of new equipment meant to enhance a soldier's fighting capacity, but eventually fizzled out during the decades of relative peace.

2400 - The UNSC and UEG have expanded to over 900 worlds. The total population exceeds 130 billion. ONI claims to have discovered the remains of an advanced alien spacecraft, little do they know that it is in fact a Covenant explorer ship. Expansion halts as the UNSC and UEG realize that protecting the Outer Colonies is difficult. Defenses on all of the worlds are expanded.

2480 - Unrest swells on the fringes of the UEG territory due to unrest caused by the CAA's oversight of the Outer Colonies, leading to a gigantic build up in the UNSC as it finds itself surrounded by the prospect of worlds in revolt. The seeds of the Insurrection are planted, and rebellion is inevitable.

249 1- The ORION Project is reinitiated. ORION's goal is to create genetically and cybernetically enhanced supersoldiers to combat the growing threat of the rebels. 10 test subjects are chosen and 8 survive the augmentation. These soldiers came to be known as SPARTAN-Is.

2494 - The Callisto Incident kicks off the Insurrection. The UEG is engulfed in warfare.

2517- With the Insurrection still in full swing on the Outer Colonies, the next step of the ORION program goes forward, 75 children are "chosen" to receive extreme genetic augmentations. Due to improved augmentation procedures, all 100 survive, although some are left physically, but not mentally, inept. In the end, 33 could be used for combat.

The legendary SPARTAN-IIs are born.

2525 - The Outer Colony world of Harvest is where first contact is made with an advanced space faring civilization known as the Covenant. They prove to be hostile, and the Covenant cruiser Rapid Conversion starts the Human-Covenant War by partially glasses the planet, although most of the civilians make it off world. Contact is subsequently lost with Harvest and the unarmed scout ship CMA Argo is sent to investigate, fearing the Insurrection had taken over the planet. Contact with the Argo is lost, prompting CMA Battle Group 4 to be dispatched. The CMA Heracles was the only survivor, limping its way back to Reach in order to warn the UNSC. Now a vice admiral, Preston J. Cole was given command of Battle Group X-Ray and charged with retaking the planet.

2526 - Battle Group X-Ray arrives in the system, retaking control of the planet's orbit while losing 13 ships to 1 Covenant vessel. Although it was initially claimed that Harvest's communication satellites were attacked by Insurrectionists, UNSC leadership decided to reveal the threat of the Covenant to the public. Cole's victory over Harvest was greatly exaggerated by ONI Section II. Upon Cole's return to Earth, he was promoted to admiral and subsequently given command of the Third Fleet, then proceeded to lead the 'Cole Campaigns' from 2526-2532. Despite Cole's pyrrhic victory, the Covenant began swarming the Outer Colonies and were determined to retake control of Harvest. The Prophet of Regret personally assigned Arbiter Ripa 'Moramee and the Fleet of Glorious Interdiction for this task. Harvest becomes embroiled in a 5 year long UNSC campaign to drive out the Covenant.

2528 - After the battle of Groombridge-1830, the UNSC initiates the 'Cole Protocol' devised by Admiral Cole which entails destroying all data that could fall into enemy hands and lead the Covenant to Human controlled planets. The early enactment of this protocol buys Humanity much needed time, saving billions of lives in the long run. Humanity massively fortifies the Inner Colonies and throws all of its resources into total war. The Insurrection subsides, although would remain active throughout and after the war

2530 - At the battle of Wafira, a young captain named Gregory White, a direct descendant of Andrew White, defeats a larger Covenant force of 23 ships with a fleet of 12 ships by using a series of intricate traps, including nuclear mines, and using asteroids as cover to lure in parts of the Covenant fleet and defeat it in detail. The victory boosts sagging morale as Rear Admiral White becomes a hero for humanity alongside Admiral Cole. Two months later Cole goes on an offensive with his fleet and retakes three star systems besieged by the Covenant. ONI manages to, thanks to a raid by Spartan II supersoldiers, capture a damaged Covenant frigate and transport it to a remote outpost to be researched.

2531 - Harvest is finally retaken, swelling up Human morale. After the First Battle of Arcadia, the UNSC Spirit of Fire pursued the retreating Covenant forces to rescue the captured Dr. Ellen Anders. They reach Shield 0459, a Forerunner shield world containing unstoppable warships to be used to exterminate humanity. The crew of the Spirit of Fire uses the ship's FTL drive to destroy the planet. During the battle, Arbiter Ripa 'Moramee is killed by Sergeant John Forge. After reaching a safe distance, the Slipspace drive is overloaded remotely, destroying the Flood infection and the fleet of Forerunner ships. The Spirit of Fire is set adrift through the vacuum of space.

2534 - The Covenant begins an offensive cutting deep into the Outer Colonies, the UNSC, outgunned, loses nearly 60 star systems and 100 worlds are turned to glass.

2537 - Seeing that the Covenant will likely reach the Inner Colonies within ten years and the fact that the UNSC is stretched too thin, Lord Hood, the UEG and UNSC HIGHCOM issue what comes to be known as the White Doctrine. The game plan, drawn up by Admiral White (with help from Admiral Cole, Admiral Whitcomb, and Lord Hood himself), calls for the evacuation of non-essential Outer Colonies and for the populations of the planets to be moved to the well-defended Inner Colonies. The plan calls for 75% of the remaining ships in the Outer Colonies to be combined into two massive fleets under command of Admiral Cole and Admiral White while the remaining 25% of the fleet, under Admiral Whitcomb, assists in the evacuation effort and escorting the civilians to the safer Inner Colonies.

The two fleets would then engage in hit and run tactics, luring the Covenant into traps using evacuated and abandoned worlds as bait. The Outer Colonies of Arcadia, New Jerusalem, Escala III, Midgard, and Meridian are chosen to be staging areas for these fleets, in order to keep a resupplying fleet from inadvertently leading the Covenant to the Inner Colonies. Some worlds crucial to the war effort are left inhabited, and some civilians opt to disregard the evacuation orders and remain in their homes at their own risk. These worlds, now sparsely populated, would be instrumental in making the Covenant believe that nothing was amiss. Venezia was one such world where thousands opted to stay.

2540 - With the evacuation of the Outer Colonies complete, the two fleets move to begin their work, destroying as many of the Covenant as possible while delaying the enemy's march towards the Inner Colonies and buying the UNSC invaluable time. The two fleets begin to lay their traps and successfully begin to bleed the Covenant's forces by attacking supply worlds and luring fleets to abandoned worlds only to be destroyed by hidden mines and human ships numbering in the hundreds. ONI research enabled for the premature closing of Covenant slipspace portals, meaning that Human vessels could prevent Covenant ships from performing in-system jumps entirely, meaning that they wouldn't be able to bypass defenses in space, having to face them head on.

2542 - The Overlord Defense Grid above Earth is completed, consisting of over 300 Orbital Defense Platforms and a fleet of nearly 2000 of the UNSC's most advanced ships just to defend Earth alone. The defenses of the rest of the Sol system consist of another 500 ships and another 30 Super MAC ODPs over Mars and 10 over Venus, with Each Colony of the Jovian and Saturn moons defended by 20 warships and various defense stations. The defenses of Reach are expanded as well to include 90 SMACs and a fleet of 650 Warships. All of the Inner Colonies are fortified to include at least one ODP and no less than 50 ships.

2543 - At the Battle of Psi Serpentis, a system only 47.8 light years from Earth, Admiral Cole led Battle Group India, which totaled 162 ships, to engage the 2 waiting Covenant fleets numbering over 150 ships. Utilizing a previously unheard of precision in-system jump to the gas giant of Viperidae, Admiral Cole engaged the enemy. He initially split his own fleet in two to cause the Covenant to do the same, then had the 2nd half rejoin with the main fleet, enabling him to engage only one part of the Covenant fleet with all his strength. While the second Covenant group pursued, Cole managed to inflict 42 casualties on the 100 or so strong group at a loss of a third of his own ships. 12 UNSC ships were destroyed as both the Humans and Covenant forces regrouped. Losing the UNSC forces over the curvature of the planet, the Covenant swung around Viperidae, being met with an Insurrectionist led force of 55 warships, headed by none other than Cole's Innie lover, Lyrenne Castilla. Blasting through the Covenant fleet, the Insurrectionist fleet lost a quarter of its ships before jumping out of the system. Unexpectedly, another Covenant fleet totalling over 200 ships jumped into the system. The rest of the UNSC fleet disengaged, seemingly leaving Cole's flagship, the Valiant-Class Super-Heavy Cruiser Everest, which began to move into the gas giant's core. Cole proceeded to taunt the Covenant, mocking them while boasting of his triumphs, provoking them to follow him into the gas giant's magnetosphere, which would prevent them from using plasma weaponry. To cover his true masterstroke, he launched thousands of archer missiles at the Covenant. While this attack was seemingly ineffective, it concealed the launching of 105 Shiva-Class nukes, which ignited the planet's core, temporarily turning it into a brown dwarf star, engulfing his ship alongside over 300 Covenant vessels.

2546 - Research into advanced technology captured by the Covenant proves to be fruitful. Energy shields, the one thing that hampered the UNSC in space, are developed and installed on UNSC ships as fast as possible alongside many other advanced technologies.

2547 - 4 years after the battle of Psi Serpentis, Admiral Cole reappears at Earth. Using the UNSC Io to open a slipspace portal in the atmosphere of Viperidae, Cole and his ship entered the slipspace portal, escaping the devastation. Claiming to have been trying to make his way back to Human space for 4 years, he declined to comment further, with Lord Hood supporting his decision and forbidding ONI from interrogating him (although ONI could easily go behind his back). With the morale boost from news of his survival, the SPARTANs are formally revealed to the public by ONI, becoming instant legends.

2449 - Arcadia falls, forcing the UNSC to use Midgard as their main staging area. The AI Cortana is created.

2550 - The fleets under Admiral White and Cole, having spent ten years successfully harassing the Covenant, are pulled back to Midgard where they await the looming attack. The attack came and the UNSC fleets, each once over 800 ships apiece, were now diminished to a combined strength of only 342 ships. Only half of that had been refitted with shields. Nevertheless, they are forced to face off against over three times their number. Supported by Midguard's 23 ODPs, the fleets grinded each other to scrap. Half of Midgard was invaded by the Covenant's ground forces while the UNSC fleet was reduced to 135 ships within three hours, the Covenant fleet reduced to around 300 ships and half of the ODPs were taken out by enemy fire.

The battle turns into a stalemate as the valiant defenders hold their ground. Five battles take place over the next year as the UNSC is unable to send reinforcements due to the Covenant finally launching invasion of the Inner Colonies, led by Supreme Commander Thel 'Vadamee.

Helmet cam footage of a 'Banished' raid on Carter Guard Armory gives ONI their first glimpses of Atriox.

2551 - The UNSC manages to hold the Covenant at bay, losing only two star systems and ten worlds as the bolstered defenses and improved ships manage to drive the menace off in a series of hundreds of skirmishes. Any incursions on colonial soil are defeated by the combined UNSC ground forces.

2552 - The battle of Sigma Octanus IV occurs from July 17-18, where Commander Jacob Keyes performs the Keyes Loop, using nothing but the UNSC Destroyer Iroquois he single handedly took out two destroyers and a frigate. He was promoted to Captain afterwards.

Although a tactical victory, a tracking device placed on his ship revealed the location of Reach to the Covenant, and data recovered from the planet would enable the Covenant to find Installation 04, Alpha Halo.

In preparation for Operation: RED FLAG, Captain Keyes was given command of the Halcyon-Class Light Cruiser Pillar of Autumn upon his arrival at Reach. The Pillar of Autumn had been recently refit for a second time, being equipped with experimental shielding, a state of the art power plant, and a powerful armament.

Before the operation could be undertaken, a monstrous Covenant armada of over 800 ships was detected heading towards Reach. The UNSC dug in its heels into the planet, and braced for the impending assault. The battle quickly devolved into a meat grinder. The battle lasted for weeks, as reinforcements nearly continuously poured in from both sides.

Surprisingly, the defenses manage to hold together and Reach is saved. Curiously, a Covenant assault carrier that was acting as the fleet's flagship goes on a random jump towards the middle of uncharted space away from the Inner Colonies after receiving strange signals from beneath the surface of Reach. The Pillar of Autumn chases after the ship with one of the now 32 surviving Spartan II supersoldiers, John-117.

From September 19-22, The Events of Alpha Halo transpire.

After returning to Reach, Operation: FIRST STRIKE is carried out by 10 Spartan IIs led by the Master Chief. The strike force attacks and destroys the Covenant repair and refit station Unyielding Hierophant and a fleet of 500 ships, set to be a part of the invasion force of Earth, by overloading the Unyielding Hierophant's 512 fusion reactors. While on the station, the Spartans uncover the coordinates of four heavily populated Covenant worlds. This leads to Operation: VENGEANCE. An ONI force of prowlers delivers a deadly package to each of the planets, a NOVA bomb, killing billions of Sangheilli and other Covenant species and turning four worlds into asteroid fields. This was followed up by the first UNSC invasion of a Covenant world, though it was a small moon colony, the Covenant was about to get a taste of their own medicine in genocide.

2553 - A small fleet of Covenant ships led by the High Prophet of Regret jumps into the Sol system with the hopes of activating the portal to Installation 00, the Ark. The Battle of Earth begins. The Covenant force is slaughtered by the Home Fleet and the Overlord Defense Grid with minimal losses.

However Truth's ship managed to slip through the defense and land forces in the city of New Mombasa. The Battle of Mombasa takes place as Regret flees via an atmospheric jump, causing widespread damage to the city and destroying its orbital elevator. The frigate In Amber Clad commanded by Miranda Keyes manages to give chase.

The events of Delta Halo transpire and the Covenant Civil War, otherwise known as the Great Schism, breaks out.

The second stage of the Battle of Earth takes place when Covenant Loyalist forces launch an all out attack on the Human homeworld. The battle rages on as the UNSC holds the Covenant at bay. The defenses of the Sol System and Earth prove to be nearly unbreakable, though casualties are high on both sides. During this time the Covenant Separatists, led by the Sangheilli, form an alliance with Humanity while battles rage across Covenant and ex-Covenant space. The Prophet of Truth, having evacuated the Covenant capitol city ship of High Charity via the Forerunner Dreadnought, and armed with the code obtained from Delta Halo and Regret, heads to the Earth.

The battle continues to transpire into its third stage as Truth and a fleet of 40 Covenant capital ships penetrate the defensive lines over Earth by using the Dreadnaught as a shield to reach the surface of Africa. There the small fleet, under constant attack from UNSC forces, vaporize Lake Victoria and excavate a gargantuan Forerunner facility that acts as a portal to the Ark, the control station to fire all of the Halos at once. Truth and his fleet slip through the portal as the Sangheilli and Humans give chase. Truth is defeated, as is the Gravemind and the Flood. When the Master Chief, Miranda Keyes, Sergeant Johnson, and Arbiter Thel 'Vadam activate the rebuilt Alpha Halo and escape using the UNSC Frigate Forward Unto Dawn through the portal.

The Human Covenant War came to an end, leaving the UNSC as well as the Sangheilli and other Separatists victorious, though pockets of Loyalist resistance remained. Several San'Shyuum survived the destruction of High Charity, and are thought to have gone looking for their homeworld, Janjur Qom. The 28 year long war cost Humanity 27 billion civilian casualties, hundreds of millions of UNSCDF personnel, and 451 colonies.

2554 - The UEG signed a defensive pact with the Sangheilli and began to terraform and settle the scarred Outer Colonies once again, and repopulate the colonies left unscathed but evacuated. WIth the majority of the Inner Colonies intact, this process is swift. A cure for AI-rampancy is also found.

2556 - The Great Schism continues on as Sangheilli fleets engage the Loyalists in short border skirmishes. The Sangheilli, believed to have lost the technical expertise to create new ships and technology thanks to the Prophets, proves that the opposite is correct, and begin to design and manufacture their own weapons and equipment. Though the peace and alliance between the Sangheilli and the Humans is still set in stone, many Humans begin to keep an eye on their decades old enemy turned friend as a result of their military expansion.

2557 – The UNSC stumble upon the Forerunner shield world of "Requiem." It is here that they awaken the Ur-Didact and his army of Prometheans, Forerunner warriors converted into digital intelligences. The UNSC Infinity and its Spartan IVs get their first real field test. UNSC forces battle against the Prometheans on Requiem for months, eventually forcing the Didact to withdraw far away from known space, and crushing Jul 'Mdama's Covenant Remnant forces, though Jul escaped and is most likely recuperating his losses somewhere in the galaxy.

A giant shockwave comes to the Humans and their allies. A Forerunner, The Librarian, revealed that the Humans are the rightful "Reclaimers" of the old Forerunner Empire and the Mantle of Responsibility. This revelation is accompanied by the location of key Forerunner planets, including their advanced shipyards via the Janus key. The advanced shipyards would greatly enhance the UNSC's ability to rearm themselves. However, trying to gain access to Forerunner designs have resulted in failure, time and time again, but that doesn't stop the UNSC from attempting to reverse engineer Forerunner technology.

Though facing severe opposition internally, the truth about the galaxy is revealed to the general public to stir up unity between Humanity, as the rightful Reclaimers of the Forerunner Empire.

2558 - The construction of the GUARDIAN Early Warning Sensor Net, first begun in 2555, is completed. This wall of sensors placed on the edge of UNSC space allowed humanity to have early warning of any activity near the "border" of Human space.

2560 (Early) - The UNSC is quickly recovering from the war, when GUARDIAN Sensor 231 detects an anomaly on the very edge of its range. Upon closer review it is discovered that the anomaly is a ship, albeit of an unknown design. An ONI prowler is sent to investigate. When the Prowler Night Owl arrives at the location, it is found to be a ruined hulk of a derelict warship. Upon further investigation it is found to be a ship that is run mostly by robots, most of them armed. However, the few organic beings that appear to be the controllers of the ship are of a species unknown to the UNSC or Covenant Separatists. As the AIs of ONI decrypt the computer banks of the ship, the UNSC learns that these beings are actually extragalactic, originally from the Andromeda Galaxy. The ship belongs to a faction named the Confederacy of Independent Systems, involved in a war with a large interstellar power, calling itself the Galactic Republic. What is even more shocking is the fact that the Andromeda Galaxy seems to be heavily populated by Humans as well. It is further uncovered that the CIS warship came to the Milky Way through a spacetime distortion, linking the two galaxies together (or at least making FTL travel significantly faster). The source of these distortions is unknown.

The UNSC sends out clandestine teams to explore Andromeda and gather information. They discover the history of the Andromeda Galaxy, the Jedi, the Republic, and the war, called the Clone War, which appears to have broken out only years ago. The UNSC inexplicably learns that, though it is small, its comparatively highly developed colonies, along with a large, well trained, well equipped and experienced military, only coupled with the large defenses built as a result of the Covenant War, would be a major power in the Galaxy.

However, as the likelihood of the UEG being discovered by the CIS or Galactic Republic grows, ONI decides to reveal their findings about the state of Andromeda to the public.

Once again, the UEG is massively shocked by this revelation coming from ONI. Immediately discussions and debates rise up. People question if they should make their presence known to the galaxy. The last thing they want is another war, even if they're prepared for it. There is also wonder stemming from the question of how the Andromeda Humans ended up there.

The speculation is soon squashed when the existence of the UEG is revealed, when a Republic cruiser with a Jedi Knight, named Anakin Skywalker, onboard jumps out of the spacetime anomaly into one of the systems where a GUARDIAN station is, apparently in search of the very ship the UNSC found.

Great confusion is stirred up when they speak a form of English, initially assumed to be from translation software, but is pushed to the side.

The UEG is forced to initiate contact. UEG ambassadors make formal contact with the Republic, though exact locations of most UEG planets are withheld. Limited trade is allowed between the Milky Way and Andromeda through heavily defended checkpoints and the installation of trade transponders on merchant vessels. If a ship was found outside a designated system or had no transponder, it would automatically be intercepted or destroyed by UEG military forces.

The Republic (after seeing that the UEG is a well organized power and witnessing the UNSC fleet that made contact) immediately try to coerce the UNSC into joining them in their war against the CIS. To the surprise of the Chancellor and the Jedi, they adamantly refuse to get involved.

The presence of a great power operating from another galaxy stirs up great interest (and fear) in the Andromeda Galaxy. In order to distinguish themselves from the Andromeda Humans, the Milky Way Humans begin to call themselves Terrans, after the Latin word for Earth, Terra. Trinkets of antiquated Terran technology begin to appear across the galaxy, being subsequently analyzed and dissected by the Republic and CIS alike.

Their discoveries lead the intelligence communities of both factions to presume that the UNSC would be a minor player in the galactic community militarily speaking, with biases against the projectile weapons Terrans held dear. Culturally however, Terran media became vastly popular with Andromedans. Terran music became its own genre, the Holonet soon became filled with dozens of channels dedicated to broadcasting Terran shows and films (with a tremendous financial kickback to the Terran companies).

ONI Operatives are once again dispatched across Andromeda, this time under orders to discover the dirty laundry of the Clone War, which many Terrans found despicable due to the Republic's use of Clones being seen as nothing more than slavery (although it was quite ironic considering the origins of the SPARTAN II/III Projects that were classified).

The UNSC eventually discover that the entire Clone War was nothing more than a very complex conspiracy supported by ex-Jedi and what are believed to be high ranking members of the Republic government, though their identities are unknown (their true intentions remaining unknown as well). This information immediately becomes classified. The UEG slowly begins to isolate itself from the intergalactic community, not going out of its way for diplomatic missions, visits, etc. As the Clone War rages on, the CIS begins to slowly deteriorate and many elements of the CIS call to the UEG for aid. The UNSC begins to provide humanitarian aid to the CIS. This leads to the creation of great tension between the UEG and the Republic. The UEG begins to secretly provide intelligence to the beleaguered CIS, and prepares for war.

2560 (Late) - The Terran/Republic War begins, when a Venator-Class Star Destroyer apart of an arriving invasion fleet fires on a UNSC frigate escorting a freighter over a CIS world. The Venator believed the Terrans to be assisting the defense forces of the planet, and were subsequently treated as hostile. The Venator managed to destroy the unshielded freighter, but was heavily damaged in the ensuing response from the UNSC frigate. The UNSC ship proceeded to jump out of the system.

2561 - Present

UNSC Equipment

MA6D Assault Rifle - First trialed in 2431, this rifle shares many looks with the older, more conventional MA5 rifle series and is around the same dimensions too. However the overall appearance is where the similarities end. The weapon has a unique design that Misriah spent years designing. The barrel is lined with electromagnetic coils, but uses conventional cartridges and conventional firing methods, wherein a hammer strikes the firing pin; the firing pin strikes the primer and so on. If the firing computer is functioning properly, the electromagnetic coils will further accelerate the projectile as it moves along the barrel. If not, it functions as a regular rifle. When in working order, the accuracy and muzzle velocity is dramatic, with an accurate range of over 1000 yards and a muzzle velocity in excess of 2440 m/s. All rifles come standard with flip up iron sights and a detachable holographic red dot sight atop the ammo counter. The ammo counter houses the fire control systems necessary to properly time the coils and a miniaturized targeting computer able to interface with standard UNSC smart-link hardware, making the red dot largely redundant and reserved for emergencies. This weapon is known to be able to drain or penetrate standard Sangheili Energy shields in 4 to 6 hits. The major drawback to the design is the complicated electronics fitted into the rifle. While UNSC personnel are trained how to perform field diagnostics, the rifle's electronics suite would have to be repaired by a technician or replaced altogether. A malfunction of this sort would not hinder the rifle's inherent ability to fire however as it still has the conventional firing mechanism as a backup. The rifle can be chambered for a multitude of calibers, just as its MA5 predecessor.

M99 Stanchion II Gauss Rifle - The original M99 Stanchion Gauss rifle was a sniper/anti-material rifle that served throughout the 2400's and into the Covenant War. However the UNSC realized that it needed a weapon halfway between the range/power of the original Stanchion and the MA6. Gauss technology was in use long before 2538 when this weapon was introduced, but the Stanchion II was an innovative design. Helped along with technology reverse engineered from captured Covenant weapons, the M100 is a fully contained coil rifle that is only 4 feet long, compared to the nearly 7 foot long M99. Though it sacrifices fire rate for power, the weapon's 5.4mm tungsten slugs can take out almost anything on the battlefield in as little as one hit with its muzzle velocity of 6,300 m/s. The M100 standard capacity magazine holds 10 slugs. The M100 looks like a smaller M99 Stanchion. The battery of the weapon is contained in a small magazine-like pack attached to the front of the weapon in the trigger guard which gives enough power for 1000 fully charged shots, after which the battery can be simply ejected like a magazine and replaced with a new battery. The weapon comes with a 1-4x24 magnification scope with full thermal and night vision capabilities.

AA-22 Automatic Shotgun - Adopted by the UNSC Marine Corps in 2500 to deal with urban combat and boarding actions against the growing Insurrection, the AA-22 delivers devastating close range firepower. As the name suggests, this weapon is the distant offspring of the vaunted AA-12 Automatic Shotgun. Similar to the M45 Shotgun or M90 CAWS, the AA-22 can be chambered for 8, 10, or 12 gauge shells. A standard magazine holds 10 12 gauge shells or 30 from a drum magazine and fires at a rate of 300 rounds a minute.

MGS-953 Squad Light Machine Gun (SAW) - A typical UNSC Marine Corps squad of 10 men carries two MGS-953 SAWs, and the fire superiority this gives them makes Hunters second guess charging into battle. It can be fed ammunition from a belt or magazine. The standard configuration is a 150 round belt contained within a box attached onto the weapon, the SAW capable of spitting them out at a rate of up to 1000 rounds a minute at an accurate range of 350 yards and with a velocity of 1000 meters a second. This weapon's purpose is to lay suppressive fire very fast.

M56 Armor - The latest in personal UNSC armor technology introduced in 2556, the M56 can trace its roots to the Future Force Warrior systems and Mechanical exoskeletons employed by the United States in the 21st century.

Using reactive carbon nanotubes built into the arms, back, and leg pieces of the BDU the M-51 suit allows for the wearer to carry far more weight into combat, run at bursts of up to 20 mph in full gear, and lift three times their bodyweight. The armored plates, made up of carbon ceramics and titanium alloy, are highly resistant to small arms fire up to 12.7mm and can withstand up to 4 direct hits from Sangheili plasma rifles. Marines also carry an attachable rebreather and mask for limited EVA operations or in case of emergency decompression on a ship.

The M56 exo-suit carries an onboard shield generator which is capable of taking dozens of hits from energy weapons. ODSTs use an M56 variant, the M57, which is more durable, and allows the user to fall from high orbit and survive, but with the likely chance of ending up with severe injuries. Since it is a relatively new design, only a few active units have received this special armor. Many units still use the older BDUs consisting of the M52B armor and CH252 helmet augmented with personal shielding.

Miscellaneous – The UNSC has many old weapon systems still in service with rear line, garrison, and even newly activated units, such as the M6 Magnum series, the M7 SMG, and the M90 shotgun among others.

UNSC Vehicles

M20 Combat Vehicle 'Warthog' - Introduced in 2500, the upgrade of the older M12 Warthog, the M20 has a more powerful engine, stronger armor, and a rear-mounted M41 LAAG. It also has multiple variants, such as a troop transport, a command center, and an ambulance, but mainly functions as a fast reconnaissance vehicle. It is equipped with a small shield generator that can protect it from threats long enough for the M20 to withdraw.

M38 APC 'Panda' - Rolled off the assembly line in 2530, The 8-wheeled M38 armored personnel carrier ferries troops to and from the battlefield. It can protect against all small arms fire and can take multiple hits from directed energy weapons. It has a 25mm autocannon mounted on its roof. It has proved to be a versatile weapons platform, being used for multiple roles, such as anti-air, logistics, and as a mortar carrier. It is equipped with composite armor plating and a shield generator that enhances its capacity in dealing with mines, shrapnel, etc. An active defense system also defeats mortar rounds, rockets, and even tank shells.

M43 IFV 'Boar' - Pressed into service alongside the Recluse, the tracked M43 IFV keeps troops protected and carries them to the frontline, and supports the infantry in combat. It was designed to keep up with the M1000 Recluse MBT, which it is easily capable of. It is armed with a 30mm autocannon, a 40mm grenade launcher, and an ATGM launcher. It is equipped with a shield generator that aids in protecting against all battlefield threats alongside its composite plating. It is fitted with the same ADS as the M38.

M1000 MBT 'Recluse' - Based on the venerable Scorpion, the Recluse was introduced in 2531 and became the most powerful MBT ever created by modern Humanity. The Recluse is armed with a 125mm cannon, two 12.7mm machine guns, and two 25mm light anti-air guns, or LAAGs, mounted on the side of the turret. Unlike its predecessors, its turret is mounted in the middle of the tank like contemporary 20th and 21st century designs. While the Scorpion is favored by Marine Expeditionary Forces, the Recluse is an absolute brawler selected by the Army, with a crew of a gunner, commander, and driver. The armor is far thicker than the Scorpion, and its effectiveness is further increased by its angled plating. The titanium alloy armor and composite Chobham plates can withstand numerous hits from Hunter assault cannons and several direct hits from a Wraith, as well as dozens of hits from conventional cannon shells. It is additionally fitted with the same ADS as the M38. The far sleeker tank uses a fusion reactor to power the beast to speeds up to 60 mph.

Miscellaneous – Miscellaneous UNSC vehicles include the Mongoose, and the dozen or so types of trucks used for transportation and logistics.

UNSC Aircraft

FS-837 Starfighter 'Falken' - Adopted after the war in 2553, the Falken is a giant leap forward in fighter technology. Under half the size of the Longsword at a wingspan of 31 meters, the Falken is faster and far more maneuverable. The most revolutionary concept utilized by some variants of the Falken is a fully enclosed cockpit, opting to utilize view screens (designated the COFFIN system) to give the pilot a 360 degree view at all times. The fighter has a long danger nose and a swept forward wing design. Two large omnidirectional thrust capable engines allow the Falken to flip over and spin on its axis for better angles of attack during dogfights, a deadly advantage. Also having two inward swept tailfins and two canards in front of the wing, the Falken is just as maneuverable and nimble in a dogfight in atmosphere as in space. It is armed with two 50mm cannons and a pulse laser. It can also store 20 missiles internally, with many more being mountable on weapon hardpoints on the wings and on its belly. The Falken serves as a deadly augmentation to the Sabre and Broadsword fighters.

Miscellaneous – The UNSC operates multiple miscellaneous aircraft, such as the old AV-14 Hornet, to the newer AV-49 Wasp.

UNSC Starships

Andraste-Class Frigate - The Andraste-Class Frigate is the result of the gradual evolution of UNSC warships through the Human-Covenant War. Fazed into service alongside older frigate classes as early as 2548, and gradually replacing them, the Andraste has a powerful anti-fighter armament for screening larger vessels. Though having the overall classic look and profile of UNSC frigates, the Andraste looks less skeletal, looking a little more bulky due to an extra meter of armor and more weapons.

Warlock-Class Heavy Cruiser - Before the plans for the Warlock had even been drafted up, by 2542 it had become apparent that the Marathon-Class that preceded the Warlock was no doubt very powerful, just not powerful enough. Though the UNSC could build Marathons at the various shipyards at Reach, Earth, Mars and about a dozen other Inner Colonies at a pace of about 80 a year in total, they needed a ship that was more efficient and could easily be adapted to take on the new technologies the UNSC had in development.

As such, in 2554, the Warlock-Class was born.

At a length of 3484 meters and armed with the most advanced weapons the UNSC has at its disposal, these ships are a force to be reckoned with.

Medusa-Class Battleship - The design for these powerful ships were conceived in the first years of the Human-Covenant War. After being rolled out in 2538, the Medusa proved formidable in battle, being able to go toe to toe with Covenant ships. Although seeing little action in the ongoing war against Covenant holdouts, whenever it arrives on scene, it inspires its allies and strikes terror in its enemies. Its mere presence often decided the outcome in skirmishes against Covenant forces and Insurrectionists.
