Battle of ReachEdit
Rho 'Barutamee was made the Shipmaster of the CSO-class supercarrier Long Night of Solace by the year 2552. This also included the Long Night of Solace to be made the flagship of the Fleet of Valiant Prudence, the scout force sent to Reach ahead of the main Covenant invasion fleet. This placed Rho as the commander of the first assault on Reach, this command was later taken over by Thel 'Vadamee when he arrived with his fleet.
The Long Night of Solace continued it's assault on the surface of Reach, where the troopers of the UNSC Army, under lead of Noble Team, destroyed the cloaking device of the supercarrier. The Fleet's vessels attacked the UNSC Army's garrisons before retreating into orbit. The Long Night of Solace was the primary target of Operation: UPPER CUT, which could only be reached via the smaller ship the Ardent Prayer loaded with a bomb
