Mission to Cleyell

The Mission to Cleyell was a UNSC mission to the colony world of Cleyell, which had recently been glassed by a fringe group of Covenant remnants sometime in 2556.  The UNSC Cascadia was sent to investigate after detecting a distress signal coming from the surface of Cleyell, and deployed a team of ODSTs, including Holly Tanaka, to look for survivors.  During the search, the team came across a group of hostile Kig-Yar, and after fighting them off, discovered a group of survivors hiding in the caves of the planet.  The team was able to rescue all survivors without taking casualties.  



These events are depicted in the comic Halo: Escalation Volume 3, which was the subject of a Halo Book Club on September 6th, 2016.
