Pillar of Autumn

The Pillar of Autumn sculpted in the round using Lego. And in plexiglass.

The Pillar of Autumn is the starship that Captain Keyes was commissioned to fly to the Covenant homeworld, with his precious cargo of SPARTAN-II supersoldiers. But things went sour at the planet Reach when the ship was forced into a battle with some Covenant forces. All of the SPARTAN-II soldiers were killed (supposedly) except one, the Master Chief, and Keyes was forced to dutifully enact the Cole Protocol, which clearly states that, if under attack by enemy forces, a ship cannot return to Earth for fear of the Covenant finding the planet. So Keyes made a random light-speed jump into space, and ended up at Halo.
