The Unnamed Flood Battlecruiser was a Covenant warship that was captured and infected by the parasitic Flood, used in an attempt to infect the human homeworld of Earth.

Background

The crash site of the Flood Battlecruiser.

A former part of the Fleet of Retribution, since only dead Sangheili are found onboard, it was captured by the Flood during the Sangheili's quarantine of Installation 05 and High Charity. Setting a course for Earth, it absorbed the ship's crew and passengers to provide biomass, it crashed into Earth near Voi, Kenya as the Prophet of Truth activated the Portal, and its new parasitic passengers spread out through the city, infecting the UNSC Marine defenders and the Covenant Loyalist occupiers. Its infected crew and the newly-infected "victims" quickly spread, threatening to overrun the city of Voi and the surrounding area.

In order to prevent further Flood contamination, the ship was going to be destroyed by John-117 and the Arbiter by detonating its fusion reactors. The surviving ships in the Fleet of Retribution made that unnecessary upon their arrival, proceeding instead to glass the contaminated area, destroying the remains of the ship and halting the Flood threat.[1]
