UNSC Sagan Blue (hull classification symbol FS-803) was a Gladius-class corvette in service with the UNSC Navy.

Trivia[edit]

Early in the development of Halo: Warfleet – An Illustrated Guide to the Spacecraft of Halo, the UNSC Sagan Blue was called the Carl Sagan, after Carl Sagan, a famous American astronomer and science popularizer.[3] The ship's final name may be a reference to Pale Blue Dot, a photograph taken at Sagan's request by the Voyager 1 space probe in which Earth appears as a tiny dot against the vastness of space. Sagan additionally supplied reflective commentary on the photograph and its implications for Earth, humanity and the cosmos.
