The UNSC Department of Commercial Shipping, abbreviated "DCS," is an organization in the UNSC.

History[edit | edit source]

Some of their ships were attacked by the Covenant ship Minor Transgression in 2524, which led to the beginning of the Human-Covenant war.

Lieutenant Commander Jilan al-Cygni posed as a DCS employee as cover for her assignment from the Office of Naval Intelligence to investigate the disappearance of freighters from Harvest.[1]

Duties[edit | edit source]

It is responsible for maintaining the UNSC commercial fleet and regulating interstellar commerce and shipping between colony worlds.[2]

Freighter Identification Codes[edit | edit source]

Freighter Identification Codes are codes used by the UNSC to identify freighters. They are primarily used during COM transmissions.[3]

Freighter Identification Codes usually compose of a three-letter code followed by an eight- or nine-digit number. The letters correspond to the first letters of the freighter's name. If the freighter's name is only two words, the letter "X" is used as a substitute for the third letter (e.g. Contents Under Pressure would be "CUP," while Bulk Discount would be "BDX").[4] A notable exception to this is the Wholesale Price,[3] though this may be an oversight.
