UNSC Hidden Point was deployed to Netherop in 2559 as part of a larger mission conducted to the planet. It was destroyed during the ensuing battle on the planet by Tam 'Lakosee, following his activation of the Divine Hand.[9]

Production notes[edit]

During the writing of Halo: Outcasts, an early consideration was for the stealth cruiser in the story to be a reuse of UNSC Vanishing Point from Troy Denning's previous novel Halo: Silent Storm. However, this suggestion was rejected by the editors at 343 Industries and the ship renamed to UNSC Stoppage Time; Denning didn't like this revised name - leading to a second rename to Hidden Point for the final print. For the final release of the novel, a reference to the Stoppage Time name remains in Chapter 21, due to an oversight on the part of the editors.[12]

  12. ^ Twitter, Troy Dennning (@TDenningauthor): "Probably. At one point, Hidden Point had been renamed Stoppage Time after the editors didn't like the idea of reusing Vanishing Point (from Silent Storm). But I didn't like Stoppage Time as a ship name, and suggested using Hidden Point instead. Sorry we missed that correction!" (Retrieved on Aug 15, 2023) [archive]
