Pillar of Autumn
The Pillar of Autumn is the starship that Captain Keyes was commissioned to fly to the Covenant homeworld, with his precious cargo of SPARTAN-II supersoldiers. But things went sour at the planet Reach when the ship was forced into a battle with some Covenant forces. All of the SPARTAN-II soldiers were killed (supposedly) except one, the Master Chief, and Keyes was forced to dutifully enact the Cole Protocol, which clearly states that, if under attack by enemy forces, a ship cannot return to Earth for fear of the Covenant finding the planet. So Keyes made a random light-speed jump into space, and ended up at Halo.
