History[edit]

Main article: Battle of Sargasso

In 2546, Gamma-Six, under the command of Sergeant Pham, was sent to the town of Belisk on Sargasso during the Covenant's attack on the planet to protect Lethbridge Industrial's latest military-grade munitions manufactured for the Office of Naval Intelligence. While Gamma-Six protected the facility, ONI tasked another ODST squad, Alpha-Nine with retrieving the facility's research data before the Covenant did.[1] Unbeknownst to Gamma-Six, ONI had intended for the squad to serve as a mere distraction to allow Alpha-Nine to recover the data. As Alpha-Nine completed their mission and prepared to leave Belisk, the squad's leader, Edward Buck, overheard Lance Corporal Sarah Palmer of Gamma-Six questioning Command about their lack of extraction. Palmer had taken control of the remainder of her squad after Pham's death. Command informed Palmer that the amount of hostiles at her position made extraction infeasible, and ordered for her to retreat to a safer location. As two Type-26 Banshees assaulted her position, Buck ignored his orders and led his squad to rescue Palmer and Gamma-Six. By the time Alpha-Nine arrived, Palmer was the last remaining member of her squad. Together, the ODSTs eliminated the Jiralhanae, Kig-Yar, Unggoy and Banshees assaulting their position and returned to base in a civilian truck.[2]
