The Battle of October 10 was an engagement between Battle Group Rhino of the UNSC Navy's Third Fleet and an unidentified force.[1]


On October 10, 2552, Battle Group Rhino detected twelve unidentified large vessels close to Saturn's moon of Enceladus, broadcasting outdated civilian IFF codes. When the Battle Group approached, eleven of the vessels made unauthorized slipspace jumps out of the Sol system.[1]


Pursuant to standing orders to engage vessels not positively identified as friendly, Battle Group Rhino moved to engage the remaining ship. The UNSC Totem Lake reportedly suffered multiple hull breaches and was raided by boarding parties. The ship was then lost with all hands. The battle group disengaged and regrouped at Phase Line Alpha above Enceladus.[1] 


Vice Admiral Williams requested to reengage the ship, but was denied by Fleet Admiral Harper. On October 17, 2552, Captain W. Murray compiled a report on the battle containing 82 files.[1]
