The Massacre of Troy was a Covenant attack on the UNSC colony Troy, in the Hellespont System. The UNSC Apocalypso had intercepted a Covenant transmission and was aware of the impending assault.[1] They did not want the Covenant to find out that they had cracked the communications code, so ONI operatives were sent to the surface [2], ordered to quietly evacuate as many of the population as they could.[3] The UNSC managed to save a small portion before the planet was glassed by the unopposed Covenant fleet. Few humans were aware of the evacuation, and assumed there were no survivors. Involved UNSC personnel included Lance Corporals Janet Adams and Gobi.

In order to uncover whether ONI had predicted the massacre, Colonel Herzog posed as an evacuee, forcefully evacuated by Lance Corporal Janet Adams. Adams was later killed, either in combat with the Covenant or assassinated to keep the evacuation secret.[4] Rani Sobeck attempted to contact Gobi to learn more about the cover up, but was stopped[5].
