The Infinite Succor was a DSC-class support ship of the Covenant, attached to the Fleet of Particular Justice.[1] Its purpose was to provide food stores for the crews and soldiers of the fleet. It contained a large hunting preserve full of wildlife for hunting and producing live meat.

Description

The Infinite Succor had no Sangheili in its crew. The ship's complement seems to have been comprised entirely of Unggoy and Huragok, along with the numerous animals of the preserve. The commander of the ship was a single Minor Prophet, called the Minister of Etiology.

Battle on the Infinite Succor

In 2552, during the 9th Age of Reclamation, the ship was sent to Installation 04 to aid the Fleet of Particular Justice as it pursued the Halcyon-class cruiser Pillar of Autumn. The ship was in orbit above the ring when the Flood broke loose from the Halo's Flood containment facilities. The Flood repaired the crashed Covenant dropship, Brilliant Gift, and several combat forms flew the ship into the Infinite Succor's bay. The Flood quickly spread throughout the ship and infected most of the crew and the wildlife from the ship's hunting preserves.[1]

A Strike Team led by Special Operations Commander Rtas 'Vadumee and Special Operations Officer Bero 'Kusovai was sent to take care of the intruders. They originally thought the intruders were a human threat but were quickly surprised by the Flood, which managed to assimilate a Special Operations Sangheili and take the ship's security codes from him. The surviving members of 'Vadumee's squad were gradually killed. The Flood were in the process of using the bodies of the crew and preserve animals to make a Proto-Gravemind in the engineering room of the ship. They were successful in infecting the Minister of Etiology and absorbing him into the Proto-Gravemind. Eventually, 'Vadumee killed the Flood-infected Kusovai, at the cost of 'Vadumee's left mandibles.[1]

Ultimately, 'Vadumee was forced to set the Infinite Succor on a Slipspace vector for the system's star. He survived, but the rest of his team, as well as the entire crew of the ship, are assumed to be lost when it was destroyed in the star.

Trivia

The Infinite Succor was originally intended to be a part of a level that was cut from Halo 2.[2]
