The UNSC Heracles was a UNSC destroyer, named after the legendary hero of Greek mythology, Heracles, commanded by Captain Maribeau Veredi, and the lead ship of Battlegroup 4.

Operational History

On October 7, 2525, The Heracles, along with the rest of Battlegroup 4, the UNSC Arabia and UNSC Vostok were sent into the Harvest system to discover why the Colonial Administration Authority had lost contact with both the colony and the scout ship Argo. It discovered the planet destroyed, the Argo missing, and a Covenant vessel in orbit. After a short battle, the Arabia and the Vostok were destroyed and the Heracles was forced to retreat. Due to the extensive damage it had taken during the battle, the Heracles took several weeks to return to Reach.[2] The ship was repaired at Reach, and later returned to reclaim Harvest as part of Admiral Preston Cole's battlefleet.

While at Harvest, it recovered a RQ-XII drone left by Jilan al-Cygni eight months earlier.[3]
