The Stealth Cruiser was a Starship in the UNSC fleet [1]. Stealth Cruisers are the largest Prowler-class vessels built, the length of a UNSC Destroyer. There is only one known ship of the class in existence, the UNSC Point of No Return, due primarily to the sheer expense of manufacturing the stealth ablative coating that rendered it invisible from radar and other sensors and limited visual camouflage, and the problems incurred maintaining this ablative layer.

Although, while the Point of No Return was in service, at Station Delphi Kurt-051, along with two of his fellow Spartan-II's saw the construction cradle that was being used to construct a second ship of the same size class as Point of No Return.

Summary

The UNSC Point of No Return was constructed in parts and then assembled in deep space. It was completely radar-invisible and when the baffled engines ran below 30%, the craft was dark as interstellar space. This ship was the wartime field command and control platform for the UNSC Naval Intelligence units, specifically ONI section 3. Very few people have ever seen the ship and even less have actually been aboard this vessel.

Interior

The inside of the ship was just as mysterious, with stainless-steel walls brushed to a white reflective shield, as was most of the ship's insides. The floors oddly enough weren't the same white color as the walls, being described as metal grates. It also contained a Faraday Cage, completely sealed off from the rest of the ship, known as "the Cage", where meetings of an extremely classified nature could be conducted in absolute secrecy. It is unknown whether, if there are other ships of the class or if they possess similar chambers.
