Alpha Corvi, also named Alchiba, is a yellow-white star located 49 light years from the Sol system. It is the fifth-brightest star in the constellation Corvus.[1]

History[edit]

At some point before the twenty-sixth century, Humanity colonized the planetary system, establishing a precarious colony on Alpha Corvi II. At some point, the planet became embroiled in the Insurrection, and was a major stronghold for the United Rebel Front. During the Human-Covenant War, the Master Chief and Blue Team were deployed by the UNSC to Alpha Corvi II to halt the Covenant's efforts to uncover something hidden below the planet's surface.[2] With the aid of the local rebel movement Blue Team succeeded in their mission, but the UNSC was unable to stop the Covenant fleet from smashing through the planet's defenses. The UNSC was soon after forced to abandon the colony and with it the entire Alpha Corvi system.[3]
