Harvest was a UEG Agriculture World. The colony was the seventeenth to be settled, and the most remote at the time of its founding. It was founded by the UNSC Skidbladnir. Located in the Epsilon Indi system, the planet had the unfortunate distinction of being the first human planet discovered and destroyed by the Covenant. After disastrous First Piala War, the planet was subsequently glassed by the Covenant during the First Battle of Harvest, but most of its population managed to escape in freighters.
