Slip Termination, Preventable

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

Slip Termination, Preventable (or STP for short) is a Shaw-Fujikawa Translight Engine failure classification.[1] STP usually results from poor drive maintenance.[1]

It was due to a slip termination that the freighter Horn of Plenty was attacked by the Covenant missionary vessel Minor Transgression. This was one of the events that started the Human-Covenant War.[1]

Some human freighter captains have their own way of translating the acronym: "Screwing The Pooch."[1]
