The UNSC Minotaur was a UNSC destroyer during the Human-Covenant war.

Operation History Edit

Battle of Reach Edit

Main article: Fall of Reach

During the battle of Reach, a Covenant ship fired a needle-thin lance of energy at the Minotaur's aft on A deck, burning a ten-meter wide hole through the ship, destroying the reactor, and finally exiting on the H deck near the engines; cutting the ship in half and destroying it completely in a matter of seconds.[1][2]


  • The Minotaur is likely named in reference to the mythological creature of the same name. The Minotaur was a half-man, half-bull creature that lived in the labyrinth beneath the palace of the king of Crete and devoured anyone who entered its lair.
