The UNSC Do You Feel Lucky? was a destroyer in the UNSC Navy.

Background[edit]

It was attacked by the forces from the Covenant ship Retribution's Thunder near Charybdis IX.[1] It was boarded by Sangheili and Unggoy, whom were led by Thel 'Vadamee. 'Vadamee was under orders from the Prophets to search and seize any navigational data from the ship. Upon finding that the humans had already destroyed the ship's computers, 'Vadamee and his Sangheili left and destroyed the ship.

Trivia[edit]

The ship was likely named for the 1971 crime thriller Dirty Harry, in which the protagonist of the film, Harry Calahan, threatens a thug with a .44 Magnum revolver. He informs the thug that he cannot recall if he fired 5 or 6 of the 6-shooter's bullets before cocking the weapon and asks the thug, "Do you feel lucky, punk?" Given the fact it was a destroyer, its heavy weapons and armor payload would have been befitting of the name.
