- "Defend the Trebia, escape Reach."
- ―Level description
Lieutenant Ho and his squad have escaped Reach on the UNSC Trebia, but this is short-lived as the Covenant has boarded the ship and are attempting a take over. After fighting their way to the hangar and destroying the Covenant boarding craft, the squad must fight off a Covenant counter-attack before eliminating the rest of the Covenant on the ship. With all of the Covenant boarders dead, the ship enters Slipspace and retreats as Reach is glassed.
Not Out Yet
(Boarding craft lack on to the UNSC Trebia. Covenant infantry begin to swarm out and engage the marines and naval crewmen. The ship's commander opens up a line to Lt. Ho's location)
Captain Watson: Lt. Ho, I want you and your squad to take back the main hangar bay. We need the Covenant outta this ship before we can activate the Cole Protocol and make the jump.
2nd Lt. Ho: Affirmative sir.
Objective: Re-take Hangar

Unknown Marine: 1st Squad, Alpha Company, 33rd Marines, at your service sir. There's a flame pack over here, we can probably use it to take down those boarding craft

(Gunshots echo throughout the ship as the remaining Covenant fight the marines)
Captain Watson: Good job on the hangar boys. What's left of the Covenant is attempted to make a break. I fear that they're trying to reach the command centre. We'll try to hold em off, but we're not sure for how much longer. I need you guys back up here ASAP to deal with what's left.
Private First Class James Fitzergald: Just like huntin rabbits, eh boys?
