Long Time Coming
Long Time Coming was a prospecting vessel in commission with the Office of Naval Intelligence. The ship had a sizeable cargo bay for prospecting equipment and a transmitter for raising a Slipbeacon. It was registered to the colony world Oasis VI as a cover. In 2552 her commanding officer was Captain Moreland and her primary shipboard AI was Iona.
In 2552, Long Time Coming was commissioned by the Office of Naval Intelligence to carry SPARTAN-II Team Black in a covert mission in a Covenant-controlled sector of space. Unfortunately, the ship was destroyed by Line Installation 1-4's defenses while in slipspace. Consequently, it transitioned back to normal space and crash landed on an unidentified moon.
