In Response To: Maybe this is how we find the Covenant homeworld.. (Simpsons Rule)
: In FoR on page 232, it says that in addition to letting Dr. Halsley go
: through with project MJOLNIR, ONI stepped up funding for intel and
: reconassiance missions. Small stealth ships were going to be deployed and
: search remote systems where the Covenant were based. One of these ships
: could've found the Covenant homeworld...
The only reason the author mentioned those ships was to give substance to the battle of "Circumference" inside the orbital docking bay above Reach. I don't think the stealth ships ever launched, they were in dock and the cheif had to kill the computer to protect Earth.
