Second Base


Human (Non-native)


Unified Earth Government


Second Base was a human Outer Colony of the Unified Earth Government (UEG).[1]


Human-Covenant war[edit]

Along with Green Hills, Second Base was one of two colonies glassed by the Covenant directly after Harvest in the Human-Covenant War. Initially, the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) had hoped to cover up their loss by explaining it away as a communications blackout caused by rebels. Eventually, they revealed that the UNSC was now fighting a xenocidal alien hegemony, and that Second Base and Green Hills had both been destroyed with the total loss of two million civilians between them.[2]

In January 2530, the Assembly conservatively estimated that it would take somewhere between one hundred and ten years to three hundred years to re-terraform Second Base after the Covenant glassed the world.[3]
