Were you looking for UNSC Glasgow, a ship once commanded by James Cutter?

UNSC Glasgow Kiss was a United Nations Space Command destroyer that served within Battlegroup Stalingrad during the Battle of Onyx in November 2552.


Glasgow Kiss was part of Admiral Carl Patterson's task force sent to Onyx to retrieve Dr. Catherine Halsey, the SPARTAN-IIs of Blue Team, the SPARTAN-IIIs of Gamma Company, and alleged Forerunner artifacts from the world's Sentinel constructs. During the first attack on the Covenant ships in orbit above Onyx, it moved to protect the flagship UNSC Stalingrad from enemy fire. Glasgow Kiss was subsequently destroyed by plasma meant for the flagship, although many of her crew survived in escape pods.[1]


"Glasgow kiss" is a colloquialism used in the United Kingdom for a head butt. This, in turn, stems from the Scottish city of Glasgow.
