Baleful lights shone on the tactical display of the Marathon's bridge, and the acrid smell of burning electronics filled the air. The crew valiantly fought to keep the damaged ship together as fresh Covenant forces appeared on long-range scans. The battle group had managed to fight free of Covenant forces on their tail, but more alien ships were on an intercept course. Luckily, a detachment of UNSC ships was moving to cut off the new Covenant threat. With the fate of Reach hanging in the balance, everyone hoped their mysterious cargo was worth the loss of lives.

Scenario Five: Into the fire is the fifth campaign scenario for Halo: Fleet Battles.


To protect the artefact from capture, Admiral Stanforth was forced to vector in reinforcements to stop the pursuing Covenant squadrons. The resulting battle was evenly matched, but every ship that the UNSC lost was irreplaceable, while Rho 'Barutamee's forces seemed to inch ever closer to claiming whatever prize they sought on Reach's surface. Time was running out.
