The Battle of Diamond also called the Battle of the Diamond Point Shipyards was among the final battles fought towards the end of the Human-Covenant War, between the United Nations Space Command and the Covenant and was one of the last Covenant victories prior the Battle of Earth and the Great Schism. The battle was primarily fought around the orbital shipyard facility known as the Diamond Point Shipyards above Diamond in the Delta Pavonis System. The battle was short lived one lasting only one day with most of the fighting occurring within the first hour of the battle.

Background

Following the Covenant defeat at the Battle of Sigma Octanus IV, the Covenant managed to intercept a transmission from a UNSC frigate to fall make slipspace jump to the Diamond Point Shipyards. To the Covenant this transmission alerted them to the presence of another human base. It was not until after the Battle of Reach that this human base was located. After attaining the location of the base they deployed a Covenant Stealth Corvette, the Shadow of Judgment from the Fleet of Undying Harmony. The Shadow of Judgment confirmed the location of a UNSC base, which was later found to be an orbital shipyards complex called the Diamond Point Shipyards in the Eta Cassiopeia System. When the battle of Reach was over a UNSC Halcyon-class cruiser UNSC Warspite arrived at the shipyards and confirmed what had transpired at Reach.
