The Battle of Trace was a relatively minor battle that occurred in 2540 during the Human-Covenant War on the small Outer Colony of Trace. Trace was a world so small and insignificant it was practically forgotten by the UNSC and so had been unaffected by the war. The war would find Trace when miners on the planet uncovered a ancient Forerunner relic. When the miners accidentally activated the relic it sent a signal through space that was picked up by both the UNSC and the Covenant.

The Office of Naval Intelligence detected this signal and the UNSC sent reinforcements to Trace to secure the relic for research and in case the Covenant came looking to claim it. Sure enough, a Covenant scouting fleet had detected the signal and traced it back to the colony and promptly attacked. As the UNSC struggled to evacuate Trace the Covenant fought fiercely to claim it as in turn ONI worked from the shadows to keep it out of their hands.
