The UNSC Magellan was a carrier in the UNSC Navy.

In 2517, Jacob Keyes was assigned to the Magellan as his first assignment prior to graduating Luna OCS Academy. Those orders were rescinded when he was sent to help Dr. Catherine Halsey study the candidates for the SPARTAN-II Program.[2]

At some point between 2525 and 2531, the Magellan's Shaw-Fujikawa Translight Engine was damaged and needed to be repaired. The procedure was extremely dangerous because such drives were not meant to be taken apart once they went active. SPARTAN Frederic-104 witnessed the repair.[3]

Trivia[edit]

The name likely comes from Ferdinand Magellan, an explorer who led a journey around the world.
