Part 1

The episode begins at Beachhead, a squad of ODSTs were assigned to defend the area at all costs. After suffering one casualty, the remaining four begin debtaing whether it was worth defending the area anymore. Meanwhile at a UNSC Security Outpost, a marine comes up to the commander and says that the ODST squad is pinned down. The commander decides to assist the ODSTs by ordering an orbital strike on the beachhead, hoping to soften the defenses there. Seeing the orbital strike, the ODSTs take this opportunity to move to a better defensive location. As they were traversing, the squad encounters a pair of hunters; where all four focus there fire and manage to kill one. Unfortunately, the second hunter gets to close and kills another ODST, the ODST Captain orders the rest of the squad to fall back. The marine reports to the commander, saying that the squad took another casualty and are pulling back. The commander states that they can't give any more support, and that the ODSTs are on they're own now. The three remaining ODSTs take cover, and continue to debate whether to stay and defend the beachhead, or fall back to the inner city. Then a brown figure appears on the horizon, and starts moving towards the ODSTs. One of the ODSTs sees something coming on the motion trackers, causing the other two to prepare to fire. A grunt comes up the stairway and is immediately killed, prompting the two ODSTs to look at their squadmate. Then an Elite major comes out of Active Camo, and takes out a sword. The three ODSTs attempt to scramble out of the way, but the Elite kills the ODST Captain and attempts to kill the other two. All of a sudden, Ocelot/Spartan 806, saves them in the nick of time and orders them to fall back to the city. As the ODSTs were falling back, Ocelot gave them suppressing fire, killing the remaining hunter, a couple of grunts and jackals, and finishing off a wraith with a rocket launcher.

The three make it back to the Security Outpost, where they're greeted by the commander who angrily asks about the defense of the Beachhead. Ocelot reports that the Beachhead is lost and recommends him to fall back to the inner city to survive. The commander repsonds saying that his orders is to defend the checkpoint no matter what, stating that death is just another road to victory. All of a sudden, a marine monitoring the radar yells that "it went to shit." One of the ODST's says it should be working fine, and asks what it means. The commander immediately jumps to a conclusion: "It means we've got stealth elites." An elite comes out of active camo, revealing a needler rifle pointed at the commanders head. Then a whole squad of stealth elites appear on site. The spec ops elite, orders the marines to drop their weapons and get down on the ground. The marines do as their told, and the spec ops leader tells one of the elites to check their equipment. On one of the nearby buildings, a purple figure is monitoring the situation with a sniper rifle. Everyone but Ocelot is on the ground, the spec ops leader tells him one more time to get down on the ground. Ocelot justs stands still, one of the elites comes from behind and asks permission to execute the spartan. As the elite was about to kill Ocelot, a sniper round to the head kills the spec ops. Taking advantage of the situation, Ocelot takes out his pistol and finishes the rest of the elite spec ops squad. A voice on the radio says, "Thought you might need some help here." Ocelot responds saying that a few moments earlier could've helped. Ocelot moves up toward the front of the barricde, and Whisper/Spartan 316 meets up with him. Ocelot and Whisper begin having a discussion about the situation at hand, but are interrupted by the marine commander asking if they hold this area due to an oncoming Covenant attack. They both agree to stay, and the marine commander requests for reinforcements. A couple squads of marines, along with the last two ODSTs, begin hustling toward the barricade and take defensive positions around the barricade. Ocelot and Whisper decide to flank the elites from behind hoping to trap them on both sides. As the marines wait behind the barricades, a fusion cutter is slicing the entrance in half, the marine commander tells the group to get ready. Then the slicing stops, all is quiet for a few more seconds until a plasma explosion creates a hole in the entrance. Squads of elites start rushing out into the courtyard, the marines and ODSTs begin to fire at will. At first, the elites start taking casualties, but start to find cover. As more elites start entering the courtyard, Whisper jet packs from behind and snipes a few of them before the attacking force starts focusing their attention on her. Whispers hovers near Ocelot's position and asks him for his assistance. The two spartans charge into battle inflicting many casualties on the elites. An Elite Ultra sees this, and takes out his fuel rod cannon. Ocelot sees this, and tells Whisper to get behind him while he goes into Armor Lock. The fire deflects off the shield and Ocelot breaks off after a few seconds when the elites recharge their weapons. Back at the barricades, the marines start taking some casualties as well. Ocelot and Whisper start falling back to the barricade and help support the marines from there. The fighting continues with both sides taking heavy losses, Commander Meaves then notices that an elite ultra is 'slipping around the side ' to which Ocelot goes to deal with. As he trys to ambush it from above the elite knocks him down, he trys to fight back but is smashed back into the ground by the elite. He then notices his shotgun lying on the ground, he dodges around the elite as it swipes at him, pickes up his shotgun and shots it as it charges him. He heads back to the barricade where the fighting has ended, Looking around i is clear it was a hard fough victory. They then are contacted by Nightflash who informs them that they are to return to their headquaters and asks Ocelot to trust him.

The two spartans return to their headquarters where they meet up with Swift, who tells them that Nightflash is planning to get them off reach. Ocelot walks off angerly stating that he has to hear this from him. He then argues with Nightflash about the morality of leaving their home, Ocelot walks off again saying that Nightflash may run but he won't, followed by Whisper who says that they should do as we are told. Nightflash then discusses with Swift about why he wants to leave. Meanwhile Ocelot goes to talk with Brass about what has happened, Brass manages to talk him into joining the rest of them in leaving the planet. Nightflash then tells the rest of the team his plan. The use of a forerunner teleporter suprises Brass, who thought they were going to smuggle off in the back of some carrier and jump to the nearest colonized planet, Arcadia. To hide from ONI they plan to blow up the headquarters and seem like they all died in the explosion and colapsing of the tower.

The spartan team then arrives at the facility where they meet the CEO of the company, Blake, a friend of Nightflash, who says that they will be able to leave in a bit. The facilty is then assaulted by banshees. Nightflash tells his squad to stay in the building but they all rush out to fend off the attack, Brass then tells Nightflash that he should let go a bit so they can be more effective and then runs off to fight the banshees. They take out all but one of the banshees that escapes as Ocelot trys to board it. The spartans come back inside to find out that there is an elite strike force inbound. The spartans plan to use a bomb to sabotage the facility and stop the elites from following, giving the CEO and his workers time to escape through the mountains. Swift heads off to cover the bomb carrier, Whisper sets up on the ridge and the others ambush them as they jump down. Fighting at first favors the spartans, but they are soon over run by elites and fall back into the lab. Swift is then ambushed by a bunch of elites and the bomb carrier is killed. Nightflash orders him to leave the bomb, the spartans then head throught the teleporter and Ocelot runs out to grab the bomb. The spartans then head throught the teleporter as the bomb detonates...

Part 2

Part 2 opens with an elite strike team led by Raptor ambushing a group of marines. Raptor charges into battle stabbing one of the marines in the head and shooting another before taking cover behind a rock. He trys to chase after his target but is discouraged by the Shipmaster, allowing the target to escape. It then shows a few days later, that Nightflash teleported into the same area. Climbing onto a rock he notices the halo ring and realizes something has gone wrong. It then shows the others appearing in different areas on the ring, Swift appears in a cave, Whisper in a desert area, Brass in a rocky area, and Ocelot in a similar place to Whisper, before returning to Nightflash who trys to contact any UNSC forces in the area. As he does so a purple elite sneaks up on him, knocks him to the ground, and steals his Spartan Laser. It then runs off and is chased by Nightflash. He catches up with the elite and asks him to return his weapon which it doesn't, it is then scared off by movement and Nightflash readys his weapon at the sound. The target seen in the first part walks over the top of a ridge with a bunch of marines and comments on Nightflash's armour, he then introduces himself as Lucas Gradeur, or Archangel. He tells Nightflash to follow them back to their base. As they walk off Archangel asks Nightflash if he has seen a purple elite stating that he has a tendency of hiding and shows him watching them walk away.

Meanwhile, Brass explores his surroundings and finds both a large covenant barricade and a group of ODST's, he is then attacked and chased by the elites and follows the ODST's into a cave that they are living in. They then angrily yell at him asking "What were you doing standing out there like that!?!?" Brass then asks what planet they are on to which one of them replies that they aren't on a planet. The scene then moves to Swift who trys to contact the others but is unable to do so. He begins to explore the area and finds a crashed pelican, he runs up and ask what is happening before going and finding the pilot has suffered spinal damage as a result of the crash, he then uses his Drop Shield to heal the damage, much to the suprise of the assembled marines. Swift then introduces himself to the man in charge who invites him inside. Swift then looks up and notices a bunch of marines standing on a hill in the distance, when he asks about it the commander just says that "They won't dare to tangle with us." As this is happening Whisper looks around the area she appeared in which turns out to be a military base. She meets the two leaders who then begin to have a discussion where she is constantly interrupted, she then jets up to them and asks if anyone else has teleported in. They then invite her inside so they can talk back at their base.

The shot then returns to Nightflash who has now arrived at Archangel's base, and he explains their situation, that they are trapped in a canyon with the elites in front and an ocean behind them, rendering them trapped. Nightflash then explains how he ended up here and asks Archangel how he got here. The next few shots move between characters who are each explaining to their respective spartan. They each tell the same story. They arrived while chasing a Covenant corvette, they followed it only to be attacked at it's destination by another corvette. They then abandon ship and land multiple drop sites around the ring. They also reveal that the ship, the UNSC Midsummer Night, is still working and is hidden from the elites by use of a stealth generator somewhere over the ring. Each explain their current problems with Brass's ODST's trapped by the local elites, Whisper's marines a long way from anyone else, and Swifts base fighting with each other. And all had no contact with the others since they landed on Halo.

The shot goes to Swift with the marine commander introducing himself as Memphis, and tells him about a forerunner A.I they "discovered." Memphis explains that they are going to use the A.I to build weapons that they can use against the covenenat and that these weapons woud be more effective than their current weapon set. Meanwhile, Whisper chats with the commander and his aide, and they are than attacked by a group of stealth elites, who slaughter some of the marines before leaving. The commander and his aide comment on the fact that the elites didn't kill them all but merely appeared to be searching for something, As they head back inside Whisper jumps into a warthog and chases after them. As this is happening Nightflash and Archangel continue to talk about his squad and Nightflash expresses his concern about them.

The shot then goes to Ocelot who is wandering around. Suddenly, a wraith's plasma lob appears over the ridge which Ocelot deflects with armor lock before he runs up and shotguns the gunner. The driver, presumably in rage, chases him into a nearby cave where he, too, is shot. Ocelot then advances forward toward a massive Covenant Spire. He is then surrounded by stealth elites including the yellow zealot seen at the beginning of the part.

Part 3A

The epside begins at the spire last seen a the end of the last. The camera follows an elite ultra to the top of the spire where he meets Raptor, the zealot from part 2, the ultra tell him that he is to go and watch the imprisoned Ocelot, Raptor comments on the pointlessness of the task stating it is more fit for minors or ultra's causeing the other elite to growl at him. Raptor moves down to Ocelot and strikes up a conversation with him saying that he wanted to die with honour the two have a short conversation with Ocelot agreing with him about wanting to die with honour. The scene then moves to Swift who is walking throught the garage area of the base he appeared at as he does one of the marines, who was fixing a guass hog, walks up to him and tells him to leave, Swift asks what he is talking about and leaves the garage. He goes outside to try and get in contact with the rest of the squad. As he does another marine tells him that he wouldn't be able to contact them as they were to far up in the moutains. He tells him that were they are is safe, aside from the threat of each other. He then asks about the A.I but the other marine comes back and there is an argument between the two that ends up with Mark punching the red marine and Swift punching the blue marine who runs back to the base. The other gets back up and introduces himself as Scope and invites Swift to talk to the leader of red base.

The scene moves to Nightflash who is beginnig given a 'tour' by Archangel. Nightflash then asks why the two corvettes haven't killed them. Archangel then tells him that after damaging Midsummer Night one of the corvttes destoryed the other with elites still inside and that the one that is still standing hasn't involved itself in anyway. As he is telling him this he suddenly starts looking around stating that Fido is listening. As he looks around Fido jumps down behind him and hands Nightflash his lazer before running off. Nightflash asks about Fido and Archangel just says that he comes by to 'help out'. As Archangel walks off to the blockade Nightflash comments on not remebering his lazer begin so heavy. As they walk off the camera switches to a HUd of an unknown character. The HUD lasts a few seconds and identifys Archangel as a target.

Thel moves in to retreive him but is knocked uncoscience by Ocelot who steals his sword as he trys to escape Raptor knocks him down. when Ocelot asks if he has to go back to the cell Raptor relys that they need to talk. The shot goes to Swift who is in the red side where he meets Memphis. Swift asks why Memphis wanted to see him. Memphis answers that he wants to get the A.I from the blues so that they can have a look at it. Swift declines saying he needs to find his squad, Memphis then tells him that the whole ring world is Forunner and that if the A.I is to then it may be very helpful. Meanwhile Brass and the ODST's have a look at the outpost. Brass says that his first plan of charaging in wouldn't work but says he has something else. He sends a hologram in that is quickly picked off. as this is happening Nightflash and Archangel move toward the barricade. Nightflash moves out to get a better look but one of the turrets begins to shoot at him. He dogdes the shots and fires his laser. To his suprise it is green and signifiantly more powerful, however the elite sommon two ghosts and a revenenat that chases the two back to the base. Meanwhile at the blue base Swift looks at the A.I as he does Al walks up to him telling him he heard what happened with make and that he had been talking the reds.

As al works into a monalogue. The power suddenly goes off. As he runs off the A.I comes online and talks to Swift. Meanwhile Al is working on getting the power on. When the power comes on he tells Swift he doesn't want him near the A.I or the reds to which Swift states that he'll just be somewhere inbetween.

The shot then moves to Ocelot and Raptor who are sword training. Raptor then tells Ocelot that an elites most vauable posession is his honour as it can't be replaced once lost, which he has. He vows that he will one day finish his mission but will not have his honour back.

As they continue training two minors watch them and run off back to spire to tell Firelight. Meanwhile there is still fighting at the canyon. As the elite vehicles move in the marines appear and a vehicle fight breaks out. In the end the elites are driven back by a group of marines all armed with rockets. As Nightflash moves back to the base Archangel asks him not to do that again. Nightflash say that he wanted to understand what they were dealing with and saying that the would need more of his squad.

Then King came in, Angie tells King how is day was and he said it was typical and he went to bed. Nightflash was training on an arena while lots of obstacles move around and he completes it in 2 mins and 18 seconds, which makes his score 9784, which puts him close to tier 3 which is Blue and also gives him a chance to be reassigned to a squad by using `THE ROLL OF CHANCE`. King, Roxanne and Mythic were training while they heard about Nightflash being assigned to a squad. Nighflash sees three doors which have; Front Lines, Recon and Veichles.

Nightflash gets knocked out by a wraith, then it takes out Swift. Brass tells his droid `TK-421` to fire behind them, Nightflash and Swift thinks that is risky and plain stupid.

The battle begins with Brass gettin take down by Mythic but Swift gets him, the spinny thing signals a grid which makes Nightflash go in the trenches but Swift gets knocked out.

Part 9


Nightflash-Spartan 617 (Team/Squad Leader)

  • Voice Actor: Arbiter 617

  • Armor Ability: SPRINT.
  • Visor Colour: Gold

Nightflash, or David, is the squad leader of Spartan Dispatch Unit Kilo (later on called the Argonauts thanks to Brass). Nightflash is very conservative when it comes to fighting with the team, and wants to make sure that all of his squadmates would live to fight another day. In the beginning of the series, he recalls his squad into a building to discuss plans on leaving Reach. News of this surprised the squad at first, but they eventually agreed to help fight for other colonies. They decided to meet up with David's friend Blake, CEO of Trident Industries.

Swift-Spartan 213 (Shotgunner, Support Specialist)


Swift or less commonly known as Clyde is a brave, loyal and resourceful member of Dispatch Unit Kilo. Despite being considered the 'newbie' by the more experienced Ocelot, during the events of part five Ocelot admitted that Swift had proved to him that he could trust Swift's skill and considered him as one of the squad. He has shown he will stop at nothing to help those he cares for and if Whisper had not persuaded him otherwise he was intending to assault a elite out-post and the small army's worth of troops stationed at it to rescue the foreunner AI 'Combat'.

Swift has a sister named Cassie that was killed by the Covenant prior to the series. He tries to end any conversations about her, leaving most of her past and their relationship in the dark.

Swift is one of the few spartans who opposes the opinion that spartans only follow orders and regularly argues with the marine Mark, who believes all spartans are the same and cannot think for themselves. Throughout the events of part six he opposed the conventional spartan way and also showed a remarkable level of devotion to his friends and despite knowing Nightflash for less than a day was willing to follow his lead and damage several security droids deployed to supress Brass and Mythic.

When he saw his friends die like Mark and Brass, he goes on a rampage which he can't control. He tries to kill everything even his own teammates, his A.I. can't stop his rampage from going

He regularly uses his signature catch phrase "I am Swift like a moa..." with some modification to suit the situation e.g. "I'm Swift like a moa in mating season" or "I'm Swift like a moa hunting for breakfast".

  • Armor: Helmet-Mark V, Right Shoulder-Recon, Left Shoulder-ODST, Chest-HP/Parafoil

  • Visor Colour: Gold

Ocelot-Spartan 806 (Grenadier, Assault Specialist)


Ocelot is the hardened war vetran of Dispatch Unit Kilo who has "been in more battles than you (a room full of marines) can name" and is one of the most deadly characters in the ROTS universe. Origonally a member of the first generation of spartans, Ocelot is the gruff and impatient yet brave and loyal member of dispatch Unit Kilo who believes in honour above all else. Though initially weary of those who he does not trust he is fiercely loyal to those who have his respect. He has shown however that he is gulable and can be easily manipulated as Sev was able to exploit his honour to gain his support and trust and he lowered his guard enough for Raptor to strike him from behind.

He has also admitted in part six that he was in love with Casey, Swift's sister, and that it had deeply effected him when she died and this possibly led to his closed off and moody personality. The only character so far in the series to have shown an ability to relate too Ocelot is Raptor and the friendship that stemmed from this conection led to a change in the mood of Ocelot and allowing him to become more open and even share in some of the squad's jokes.

  • Voice Actor: TTU Gunslinger
  • Armor: Helmet-EVA/CMN, Right Shoulder-Recon, Left Shoulder-Commando, Chest-UA/Multi-Threat
  • Colors: Brown primary, Ice secondary
  • Weapons: DMR, Grenade Launcher, Rocket Launcher, Shotgun, Energy Sword, Fuel Rod Gun
  • Armor Ability: ARMOR LOCK
  • Visor Colour: Black
  • Status: Killed

Whisper-Spartan 316 (Sniper)


Whipser is the voice of reason in Dispatch Unit Kilo and has been a long time friend of her fellow first generation spartan Ocelot. Maria is the smart and caring member of her squad and her level head and steady aim has saved the team's skins on many occassions. Relied on both physically and mentally by her squad, she balances both her deadly skill and her good judgment to decide what is best for her squad, especially with the hot heads like Swift, Ocelot and Brass charging in guns blazing.

Whisper has been shown to be cool and collected at all times and the only time where she was unable too act or think was when she was confronted by Ryan's affection, leading too her to become flustered. She was killed by Elites after volunteering to stay back and give them cover.

  • Armor: Helmet-Recon UA/HUL[3], Right Shoulder-Jump Jets, Left Shoulder-Recon, Chest-Default
  • Colors: Purple primary, Gold secondary

  • Armor Ability: JET PACK
  • Visor Colour: Silver
  • Status: Killed

Brass-Spartan 024 (Heavy Weapons Specialist)


The sharp tongued and layed back member of Dispatch Unit Kilo or 'The Argonauts' as Brass nicknamed them, Romero is always keen to crack a joke or too intoduce Sam (his turret) to his enimies. Romero didn't always have the layed back attitude he displays now, during his spartan training with Swift and Nightflash he was completely devoted to working and obtaining 'gold'. This all work and no play attitude disappeared after the death of the Actuarium where he was banned from obtaining gold.

He has shown to be abnoxious and insensitive at times but generally he has shown to be a moral boosting member of Dispatch Unit Kilo and is a stark contrast to the moody and depressing comments of Ocelot.

Nightflash, wanting see an example, asks Darknal to give a demonstration. The simulation begins again, this time Darknal is fighting alone against two banshees and three ghosts. With quick and decisive actions, Darknal manages to take out the training droids at ease using two rockets, and even throwing a land mine.
