* The Franchise/{{Halo}} universe features a number of symbolic planet names, the most prominent being Reach (the first extrasolar human colony) and Harvest (an extremely fertile agricultural colony). Others include Tribute, Circumstance, Tantalus, Threshold, Basis, and Onyx. Also pretty much any Covenant colony such as Weeping Shadows of Sorrow, the prison planet. Listed here because these planets are featured more prominently in the Halo novels than Halo games.
