During the Fall of Reach, a large battle in space over Reach took place on August 30th encompassing numerous ships from both sides of the battle.[1][2]

Background[edit]

HYPODERMIC[edit]

Main article: Operation: HYPODERMIC

The UNSC Circumference was a part of Operation: HYPODERMIC.[3] Due to the secrecy of the operation, the Circumference was struck from the computers of Reach Gamma Station.[4] Covenant intrusion software detected this oversight and deployed forces to the Station.[5]

Gamma Station[edit]

John, James, and Linda en route to Gamma Station.

In order to effectively tackle both problems, John-117 split his SPARTAN-IIs into two groups. Three SPARTAN-IIs (himself, Linda-058, and James-005) were to be deployed to the station to scrub the data on the Circumference.[5]

When the three SPARTANs arrived at the space station, the docking bay doors were sealed and the station was not spinning.[6]

Later actions[edit]

At some point after the mission, a Paris-class heavy frigate and an SDV-class heavy corvette battled each other near the station.[7]
