Jericho VII was a lightly populated UEG colony world located in the Lambda Serpentis system.


In 2525, the UNSC launched a counterinsurgency operation on the colony to repress the Insurrectionist presence. The SPARTAN-IIs and a force of ODSTs were each deployed in this engagement.[1][2]

During the Human-Covenant war, the planet was glassed by the Covenant via orbital bombardment in the final stages of the Battle of Jericho VII in 2535. At the end of the battle, John-117 asked Captain De Blanc for permission to watch Jericho VII being glassed. A large number of orphans from this planet enlisted for the SPARTAN-III project.


Prior to the Battle of Jericho VII, the planet had been known as the sole producer of Alt Burgundy, a fine and very expensive alcoholic beverage.[3]

Physical Aspects[]


The world contained a biosphere suitable for human life, characterized by vast green oceans and rolling plains of palm grass.


Natural satellites included four uninhabited "silver" moons.[4]
