The Unyielding Hierophant was a Covenant refit and resupply station, and also served as a base of operations for staging Covenant fleets prior to battle. The first known detection of the Unyielding Hierophant was by the crew of the Gettysburg-Ascendant Justice in September 2552, following the Battle of Installation 04 and the Massacre at Eridanus Secundus. After discovering that the Covenant had discovered the location of Earth and was amassing a fleet for an attack, Spartan-II Blue Team along with a fragment of Cortana infiltrated the Unyielding Hierophant, overloaded the station’s reactors, and destroyed the entire vessel along with nearly five-hundred additional Covenant warships in the vicinity.
