Long Time Coming was a prospecting vessel in commission with the Office of Naval Intelligence.[1][2] 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.[3] In 2552 her commanding officer was Captain Moreland and her primary shipboard AI was Iona.

History

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.[3]
