The UNSC Bellerophon was a Charon-class light frigate that served during the Insurrection. It was later captured by insurrectionists and was renamed the Bellicose.

Background[edit]

In the first years of the 26th century, the Bellicose was thrice engaged by the UNSC Gorgon, which was commanded by the legendary Captain Preston Cole. The Bellicose escaped twice and on the last occasion fought to a draw. On January 2, 2504, the ship's crew faked their own deaths by falling into the gravity well of a gas giant during the Battle of Theta Ursae Majoris and escaped by executing the first-known in-atmosphere slipspace transition.

The Bellicose resurfaced during the Human-Covenant War at the battles of 18 Scorpii and Psi Serpentis under an independent flag. There, the crew of the Bellicose, captained by Lyrenne Castilla, Cole's former wife, saved the latter's forces from Covenant attack.[2]
