Long Time Coming was a prospecting vessel in commission with the Office of Naval Intelligence. The ship had a sizeable cargo bay for prospecting equipment and a transmitter for raising a Slipbeacon.
History[edit | edit source]
Some time after the Battle of Tribute during the Human-Covenant war, this ship carried SPARTAN-II Team Black for a covert mission in a Covenant-controlled sector of space. Unfortunately, the ship was mysteriously destroyed while in Slipspace. Consequently, it transitioned back to normal space and crash landed on an unknown Moon.
