Battle for Zeta Halo
- Main article: Battle for Zeta Halo
On December 12, 2559, Thompson was aboard the UNSC Infinity when it was ambushed by Banished forces upon arrival at Installation 07. As the Infinity fell to the Banished assault, Thompson was evacuated onboard an RLT-85 shuttlepod. Pursued by a Phantom, the shuttlepod landed against a rocky hillside in an area south of the Silent Auditorium, where the Banished deployed three anti-air artilleries. The survivors were attacked by a Banshee as they exited the shuttlepod, but they were rescued by Spartan Nina Kovan, who had just intercepted the pursuing Phantom and then destroyed the vehicle with two rounds fired from her SRS99-S7 AM sniper rifle. Kovan then instructed the survivors, including Thompson, to gather the weapons, rations, and supplies from the shuttle.
Over the next six days, Thompson and other survivors travelled across the region with Spartan Kovan. They eventually rendezvoused with another group of survivors led by Spartan Bonita Stone. On the evening of December 18, while Kovan scouted ahead, the group was resting in the middle of a forest when they were ambushed by two Jiralhanae and eight Kig-Yar, with Mosley being killed in the initial attack. While Spartan Stone traded blows with a Jiralhanae, Thompson, along with the other marines—Deleke and Kim—followed Corporal Foutty's lead to fight a second Jiralhanae, so TJ Murphy's boat crew—made up of non-combatants—can fight the weaker but more numerous Kig-Yar. The marines did not survive their fight with the Jiralhanae; the Jiralhanae first flung one marine across the air, then ripped apart the second marine, and slammed the third marine into a tree trunk. By the time Kovan returned to intervene, it was too late to save the fourth marine. After the fight, Murphy realized that Stone's motion tracker and targeting sensors were offline, and, despite Murphy's reassurance, Stone blamed herself for the deaths of the marines.
