The Insurrection of Far Isle was a brief rebellious outburst on the colony Far Isle.

BattleEdit

in 2492, a massive rebellion had taken place on Far Isle. In response, the UNSC used Nuclear weapons to end it. Following their bombardment, they declared code word Bandersnatch to signal radiological disaster.[1]

AftermathEdit

The colony's total destruction is often cited by Rebels as the cause for their fighting. The destruction of Far Isle was arguably the cause of the Insurrection.[2]

TriviaEdit

  • Admiral Osman believed that the destruction of the colony was rebel propaganda until she saw the report on it.[3]
