Legacy[edit]

Main article: Reintroduction
Keyships reseeding the galaxy.

After the Great Purification of 97,445 BCE, Keyships played a role in the Reintroduction of species to their homeworld.[2] One Keyship, the Anodyne Spirit, was hijacked by Mendicant Bias and would end up crash landing on the San'Shyuum homeworld of Janjur Qom.[3] This ship would be later seen as a religious artifact[4] to the species and would later become part of the Covenant's holy city of High Charity.

Numerous other Forerunner ships ended up being buried, like one under the Babd Catha Ice Shelf on Reach[5] or one buried on Installation 05.[6]
