Featured Article: Battle of Installation 04
H2A-AlphaHaloDestruction.jpg

The Battle of Installation 04, also known as the Halo Event, was a series of skirmishes between the United Nations Space Command, the Covenant, and the Flood on the surface of Alpha Halo, a Forerunner megastructure orbiting the gas giant Threshold. It marked the turning point of the Human-Covenant War, starting a series of events that would lead to the destabilization of the Covenant, the reawakening of Forerunner artifacts, a resurgent invasion by the Flood, and eventually humanity's rescue from extinction.

In the year 2552, the fleeing cruiser Pillar of Autumn discovered the ancient structure, abandoned for millennia. Pursued by alien starships, a battle ensued between humans and the Covenant for control over the Halo, until their conflicts freed an ancient parasite that sought to escape the ring.
