"So then the Covenant fleet really starts to tear into the orbital defenses. It's getting ugly up there. Major skirmishes with the Second, Seventh, and Sixteenth Fleets."
Sergeant Laura "Smokes" Tanner[1]

The Seventh Fleet is an organization of the UNSC Navy. Serving in the front lines of the Human-Covenant War in late 2552, the fleet was recalled to defend Earth after the Covenant invasion.[2] One of the fleet's Charon-class light frigates, UNSC Chioglossa, was destroyed in the initial stages of the Covenant's attack on Mombasa on October 20.[3] On November 3, the fleet was engaged in major skirmishes with Covenant vessels in Earth orbit in conjunction with the Second and Sixteenth Fleets.[1]

On November 17, three Seventh Fleet frigates led by Commander Miranda Keyes (with the Forward Unto Dawn as the flagship)[2] engaged the Prophet of Truth's Forerunner Keyship as he attempted to use the vessel to activate the portal structure buried near Voi, Kenya.[4] As Truth's fleet fled through the now active portal, the Dawn traveled with the Sangheili Fleet of Retribution to the Forerunner Ark installation,[5][6] leading to the destruction of the Covenant and the end of the war.[7]
