The Battle of Tribute was a space conflict that took place over the planet Tribute in the Epsilon Eridani System.

Battle

After the Covenant glassed Reach, they also attacked the other colonies in the system, including Tribute. Corporal Taylor H. Miles was present during the evacuation of the colony, and witnessed the near total destruction of the UNSC Navy escort fleet in orbit as they protected civilian refugees where the fleet suffered 90% losses.[2]

The battle apparently lasted for some time, as the Covenant continued to blockade the planet. SPARTAN-II Team Black was sent to Verge to destroy a Beacon supplying the Covenant ships with Helium used as fuel in their reactors. They succeeded in their mission, presumably slowing down the Covenant assault.[3]
