The UNSC (Explained)

The UNSC was formed in the 22th century as a military/exploratory/scientific agency by The Unified Earth Government (basically the government of the future). It mainly serves as an overseer of United Nations military operations on land and/or in space. The UNSC defeated rebels in the Interplanetary War and other battles/wars, including the conflict on Mars. The organization also fought off Insurrectionists, the group of rebels, prior to the Human-Covenant War. They wanted independence from the government, and used lethal force as a means of freedom. The UNSC initiated the Spartan I program to help aid them in their war, and also later on they created the Spartan II program to help fend off even more Insurrectionists. However, their position in the war would soon be changed when the Covenant started attacking humanity, and the Spartan II goals were shifted from attacking rebels, to defending humanity from the alien species. The UNSC continues to exist in the Halo Universe and administrates almost all of the events the humans dish out, and is responsible for many famous happenings, such as the colonization of other planets because of Earth’s overpopulation, funding/creating the Spartan I/II/III programs (and presumably the Spartan IIII program which will appear in Halo 4).

Current Events

The UNSC is a protagonist in the Halo video games, novels, and comic books. They issue troopers to battle against enemies, whether they be Covenant or Rebels. They are shown in Halo 4, most notably the Foward Unto Dawn and Infinity Frigates, as well as Commander Lasky and his UNSC companions, which ally with Master Chief (most of the time) to help do battle with the Covenant and Forerunners alike.
