Jericho VII was a lightly populated human colony world located in the Lambda Serpentis system. The world contained a biosphere suitable for human life, characterized by vast green oceans and rolling plains of palm grass. Natural satellites included four silver-colored moons.[1] Jameson Locke was born on the planet.[2]

History[edit]

In 2525, SPARTAN-II's were dispatched to Jericho VII to suppress rebel factions on the planet.[3] Around the same time, Orbital Drop Shock Troopers were also sent to put down Insurrection forces and remained on Jericho VII for over 131 days.[4]

During the Human-Covenant War, Jericho VII was found and attacked by the Covenant as early as 2532.[5] The planet was glassed via orbital bombardment in the final stages of the Battle of Jericho VII in 2535. At the end of the battle, John-117 asked Captain De Blanc for permission to watch Jericho VII being glassed. A large number of orphans from this planet enlisted for the SPARTAN-III Program.

Prior to the Battle of Jericho VII, the planet had been known as the sole producer of Alt Burgundy, a fine alcoholic beverage.[6]
