The UNSC Midsummer Night (Hull Classification Symbol FFG-209) was a United Nations Space Command Light Frigate.[1] Prior to his promotion to Captain in 2552, Lieutenant Jacob Keyes served aboard this frigate, and later transferred to the UNSC Iroquois, a UNSC destroyer.[2]

Overview

The Midsummer Night was equipped with stealth ability by ONI, in exchange for help with a special mission. The frigate had it rough from the start. During her shakedown mission of enforcing the Cole Protocol on civilian ships, some of her complement ODST's were caught in an Insurrectionist trap that resulted in over 20 Killed-in-Action and about a dozen Wounded-in-Action. From there, she gave support to ONI operatives on Charybdis IX that were trying to root out the source of some black market plasma weapons. A UNSC Pelican pilot named Jeffries lost his life to rebel rockets during this engagement.

Midsummer Night then followed an Insurrectionist ship to a structure known as the Rubble. The ship attempted to stealth its way through the Insurrectionist structure. Unfortunately, Lieutenant Badia Campbell, one of the bridge officers, was an Insurrectionist sympathizer, who wounded several officers and fatally wounded Commander Zheng before being stopped by Lieutenant Keyes. She then committed suicide with her own weapon. Before she died, Campbell sabotaged the ship and alerted the Rubble to the ship's presence. The ship was soon taken by the rebels. It is unknown how many marines and personnel died in this engagement.

Later, the ship would be taken back by Lt. Jacob Keyes with the help of the Rubble AI, Juliana, who saw the UNSC presence as the only way to save the citizens under her charge. Keyes and the surviving bridge crew would then use the ship to deploy Gray Team and its ODST’s onto the Covenant city of Redoubt and its two nearby AA guns in order to open the city to a bombardment. Several ODST’s died in the attempt, but the mission was completed.

From there on out, the ship was used to guard the habitat Exodus while it fled to the relative safety of UNSC controlled space. The ship was damaged in the effort, but was able to make it back and received repairs.

Trivia

  • The name is a reference to A Midsummer Night's Dream, a play by William Shakespeare.
  • The Night was first mentioned in Halo: The Fall of Reach when Captain Keyes was mulling the specifications of the Iroquois over in his head and recalled that she wasn't like the other ships he had served on, he then mentioned the Midsummer Night.
