Reactor (Halo Wars level)
This article is about the campaign level. For other uses of "Reactor", see Reactor.
After rescuing Anders, the crew of the UNSC Spirit of Fire lay out a plan to destroy the Etran Harborage and the fleet of Sojourner-class dreadnoughts contained within it to prevent the Covenant from using them. They load the reactor from the Spirit of Fire's FTL drive onto two Pelicans, intending to use them to ferry the drive to the installation's star for detonation, causing the star to go supernova and destroy the shield world. After Victor 397 and another Pelican carrying the FTL drive core are shot down by Banshees, Captain Cutter changes the task to a ground operation and UNSC ground forces are tasked with getting the core to the top of the Apex Base Site where it can be teleported to the the Apex.
After an Elephant is attached to the core, Sergeant John Forge and other UNSC forces, including the Spartans from Red Team escort them from Covenant and Flood forces to top of the long slopes leading to the Apex teleporter pad with success, allowing the reactor to be teleported to the Apex.
