The Battle of XI Boötis A was a major battle in the early years of the Human-Covenant War. The UNSC fleet, consisting of seventy ships, engaged eight enemy warships, destroying the enemy force but losing a total of thirty ships in the process.[1] Although the UNSC lost nearly half their ships, it is still considered one of the few human naval victories of the war.
