First of all, rebuild Alpha Base.  You’ll be surprised how fast they can do this in mere seconds, so you can build a Supply Pad and Barracks immediately after-wards.  The Barracks can be used to train Marines, and you need to train at least 5 to continue.

After this, build a Reactor and four Turrets - which you’ll want to upgrade to Anti-Air by selecting the Missile Launcher upgrade after you’ve installed them.  This is especially useful during the next few battles as you’re attacked by aerial crafts that drop troops.

Upgrade your Supply Pads to Heavy Supply Pads to increase the speed by which your resources get replenished.  Soon aferwards, upgrade the Station to a Fortress - increasing your slots to build additional buildings.  Build another Reactor for two in total, and have three Heavy Supply Pads.

When your Reactors are complete, build a Vehicle Depot.  Since you already have a Barracks, your base is starting to get more and more complete.  Feel free to upgrade your Reactors, increasing your tech level to 4.  Build a couple of Scorpion vehicles (4 or 5 to be safe).  You can give them the Canister Shell Ability to make them even more powerful against infantry.

Move out to the north with a large group of Scorpions and Marines, taking out the Covenant Citadel.  If you want, you can explore the west region and destroy the Covenant there to get some free reinforcements.
Explore the eastern area and deal with more Sniper Towers to complete the optional objective that requires you to kill 20 Jackal Snipers.

After destroying the Covenant Citadel, move out to the area (north)west of here and destroy the Covenant Methane Canisters to complete another optional objective.

Be sure to collect [BLACK BOX #2] located on the northwest behind a barrier, and also send a warthog scout back to Alpha Base to collect a [SKULL] just south of the base (which only shows after killing the 20 Jackal Snipers).

Now that you’ve cleared the map, head north and destroy the Detonator.
