New Alexandria Starport
During the Fall of Reach, the starport came under attack by Covenant forces. During the Siege of New Alexandria, an SDV-class heavy corvette took position over the starport and began to bombard nearby buildings, including the Traxus Tower. Later in the siege, Sergeant Major Duvall requested immediate airstrike on the corvette from UNSC Stalwart Dawn to allow multiple civilian transports flee from the planet. Despite orders to not leave the starport, 6 Echo 2—one of the civilian transports launching from the starport—took off but was destroyed by the corvette over the city. Thanks to the efforts of one SPARTAN-III commando, two M95 Lance missile batteries were activated to cripple the corvette, allowing the remaining three transports to successfully evacuate, ferrying thousands of survivors off of Reach.
