In 2554, the Office of Naval Intelligence sent a ship to investigate the status of Installation 00 after contact with remote probes at the Installation went offline. Soon after the ship arrived, contact with it was also lost. Nearly a year later, a countdown was detected on all known Halos, spurring the UNSC to try and open the Portal at Voi again and send a ship to try and stop the countdown. The ship arrived to find that the installation's monitor started the countdown to lure humans to open the portal so he could send sentinels to Earth and harvest it for resources. UNSC forces, along with the Swords of Sanghelios, eventually managed to stop the monitor and save the Earth from destruction.
