Manassas was a metropolitan city in Alfold on the human colony world of Reach.[1] Manassas was one of the three largest cities on Reach, the other two being Ezhtergom and Quezon.[2]


During the Fall of Reach, ODST Air Assault units were sent to pester Covenant troops in the mountains beyond the city's limits.[3] Also, one of the planet's civilian evacuation stations was located in Manassas, but was apparently destroyed by the Covenant.[4]



Manassas held its own spaceport.[5] There was as well, one space elevator in the city.[6]



Intersystem News had an office in the city.[1]
