The name Random Slipspace Trajectory alludes to the Cole Protocol, which stipulates that, when retreating from the Covenant, UNSC ships must enter Slipstream space with randomized vectors not directed towards any human worlds. The UNSC Pillar of Autumn was originally intended to make a random slipspace jump following its retreat following the Fall of Reach, but Cortana surreptitiously guided the ship to the Soell system and, ultimately, to Installation 04 instead.
