Sublime Transcendence was a Covenant supercarrier, the flagship of the Combined Fleet of Righteous Purpose. It was commanded by Imperial Admiral Xytan 'Jar Wattinree.

Design[edit]

Decks[edit]

  • Storage subdeck K: This was a dimly-lit storage deck staffed by a tribe of Unggoy crewmen.[1]
  • Storage Sector Three: This was a sector that Huragok only used as it was filled with active plasma conduits.[1]
  • M deck: This was a deck on the supercarrier.[1]

Operational history[edit]

In August 2552 the ship picked up a NOVA Bomb along with some mining equipment from Reach, implying that either it was present at the Fall of Reach or it had visited the planet afterward.

A few months later, during the Great Schism, the carrier and its fleet were at Joyous Exultation along with as many other Sangheili-controlled ships as could be found. They met to plan a strike against the Jiralhanae and to decide what to do about the Flood, then later the humans.

Destruction[edit]

The ship, most of its fleet, and the planet's moon were all destroyed when one of the Unggoy on board, Kwassass, inadvertently triggered a voice cue in a databox, thereby arming the NOVA bomb: after playing a message by Admiral Whitcomb, the detonation was caused by a group of Huragok, who reinserted the databox inside the bomb itself, despite Kwassass's efforts to prevent them from doing so after realizing the threat.[2]
