The Skirmish at the Indra Asteroid Cluster was a skirmish between the UNSC and the Covenant Empire during the Human-Covenant war.[1]


During the battle, a UNSC sniper managed to hit a plasma round from some sort of Covenant launcher. The shot caused an explosion that destroyed any organic matter in a radius of 10 meters. A Lieutenant Hencheck then managed to steal enough Covenant armaments and other artifacts to fill a Pelican. He managed to escape before the Covenant received reinforcements.[1]


Lt. Hencheck's eventually succumbed to radiation poisoning. However, his escape helped lead to the Hencheck Findings. These findings helped the Office of Naval Intelligence understand more about the Covenant's weaponry.[1]
