Operational history[edit]

Battle for Zeta Halo[edit]

Main article: Battle for Zeta Halo

In late May of 2560, the Ghost of Gbraakon captured Pelican Echo 216 in its stasis beam shortly after Fernando Esparza rescued Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 from where he has been floating in space for six months. As the Pelican was pulled into the Banished warship's interior, the Master Chief jumped out and made his way aboard with the intention of disabling the ship's stasis beam and freeing the Pelican.[3]

Fighting his way through the Ghost of Gbraakon, the Master Chief eventually made his way to the bridge, where he attempted to deactivate the stasis beam. However, he discovered that the system was locked down and that he couldn't disable it without performing a hack into the nearby terminals, which he was unable to do, lacking the skills or an AI companion to help him. Instead, the Master Chief decided to destroy the Ghost of Gbraakon by taking out the two cooling manifolds to the engines, which caused them to overheat. Fighting through more Banished forces, the Master Chief managed to take out the pipes before firing the engines, instantly causing them to overload and the ship began to explode. War Chief Escharum contacted the vessel, demanding to know what's going on, only to be amused to discover that the Master Chief was still alive and responsible. Escharum told him to destroy the ship if he must, but that the Banished would still defeat him in the end. As the ship exploded around him, the Master Chief raced back to the hangar bay where Echo 216, now freed of the stasis beam, was thrown into space when the hangar's security barrier went down. The Master Chief was knocked into space, where the Pelican collected him soon afterwards.[3]

During that time, Escharum and Tremonius watched a hologram of the Ghost of Gbraakon being wracked by explosions as Tremonius was furious about this turn of events as the Master Chief was supposed to be dead, but Escharum felt invigorated instead.[6]
