  • CAPTAIN: The Covenant has captured a high-priority package.

  • Spartans, it's your job to infiltrate enemy space and retrieve it.

  • Mission window: 10 minutes.

  • The target is equipped with a location beacon...

  • ...but you'll have to get close to read it. It's a weak signal with a short radius.

  • A stellar magnetic field is preventing the Covenant fleet...

  • ...from making a Slipspace jump.

  • You'll be flying in with EVA booster frames.

  • When you reach the Covenant fleet, find the signal, find the ship...

  • ...find a way in and grab that target.

  • The Covenant doesn't appear to realize the full value of what they've acquired.

  • And that's the way we wanna keep it.

  • Complete the extraction before they figure out what they've got.

  • All right, Spartans, you have your orders. Good luck.

  • ALL: Yes, sir.

  • MASTER CHIEF: Captain. CAPTAIN: What is it, Master Chief?

  • MASTER CHIEF: What happens if we run out of time?

  • Our only choice will be to annihilate the Covenant fleet...

  • ...the package and your entire team.

  • Is that clear enough?

  • MASTER CHIEF: I understand.

  • WOMAN [OVER PA]: Spartan team, the moment we break stealth...

  • ...commence operation.

  • Five, four, three, two, one.

  • Disable cloak. Booster frame.

  • Launch.

  • MASTER CHIEF: Incoming. Optimize mobility.

  • Plasma rounds.

  • [POWERING UP]

  • MASTER CHIEF: Scanning device is activated.

  • SOLOMON: I've got a reading.

  • KELLY: Are you sure? SOLOMON: No question.

  • Back me up, I'm going in.

  • Their shields are down.

  • The signal's coming from that cruiser.

  • KELLY: Hang on, Solomon, wait for the Chief.

  • SOLOMON: No time. I'll take my chances.

  • KELLY: All right, if we're gonna do this, let's make it fast.

  • MASTER CHIEF: Positive read from the first scan. Something's off.

  • KELLY: Hurry, Solomon.

  • SOLOMON: Gotcha.

  • [POWERING UP]

  • No.

  • - Kelly, it's a trap. KELLY: No.

  • [ALIEN CHUCKLING]

  • ALIEN 1: They took the bait. Three have perished.

  • The rest are only a matter of time.

  • We must always show our superior strength.

  • Anything less and they will exploit our weakness.

  • Weakness. You have faced these lowly creatures in battle...

  • ...while your battalion perished.

  • That tells me only one thing.

  • You have not the heart to die with honor.

  • ALIEN 2: Commander, two survivors detected.

  • KELLY: Solomon. MASTER CHIEF: Kelly, look.

  • KELLY: I'm getting multiple readings.

  • MASTER CHIEF: They're decoys. They know what we came for.

  • ARTHUR: How do we find the real signal?

  • MASTER CHIEF: They've already told us.

  • What we want is in the heart of this fleet.

  • The flagship.

  • KELLY: Syrup formation, 2 o'clock.

  • MASTER CHIEF: Ignore them. Stay on target.

  • ALIEN 2: Four enemies approaching.

  • They know.

  • Will you run away once more?

  • They will be here. I shall face them.

  • You overestimate them.

  • They cannot touch this ship.

  • THEL: I pray that you are right.

  • MASTER CHIEF: Tight formation, now.

  • Concentrate Gauss cannons on a single point.

  • FRED: Roger. KELLY: Roger.

  • FRED: Shields at maximum charge.

  • KELLY: They're still with us.

  • - I'm hit. ARTHUR: I'll hold them back.

  • I'm losing it.

  • [ARTHUR SCREAMS]

  • MASTER CHIEF: Arthur!

  • MASTER CHIEF: You've gotta eject. I got your six.

  • [KELLY GRUNTS]

  • MASTER CHIEF: You secure? KELLY: Give me the turret.

  • Now I got your six.

  • MASTER CHIEF: Let's get on with it.

  • FRED: Gauss cannon charge, 85 percent.

  • KELLY: They're advancing position.

  • FRED: Ninety-one percent.

  • [ALARM BEEPING]

  • MASTER CHIEF: There it is.

  • Launch all missiles.

  • Gauss cannon, fire.

  • FRED: This thing's toast.

  • MASTER CHIEF: Then let them have it.

  • [ALIENS SNARLING]

  • [ALL GROWLING]

  • FRED: Looks like this is the right ship.

  • KELLY: We got three minutes. MASTER CHIEF: Let's sprint this.

  • Don't fall behind.

  • KELLY: Copy that. FRED: Copy that.

  • MASTER CHIEF: Go.

  • [ALIENS SCREECHING]

  • [ALIENS GRUNTING]

  • ALIEN 2: Three units passing Sector 25.

  • Stop them. Seal all hatches.

  • MASTER CHIEF: Fred. FRED: I got it.

  • ALIEN 2: The enemy is advancing. - No.

  • Where is the major?

  • [THEL GRUNTING]

  • FRED: Go. I got this.

  • All right, the great journey ends here.

  • KELLY: Fred. MASTER CHIEF: Focus on the mission.

  • We get the target.

  • ALIEN 2: Commander, they're getting closer.

  • Getting closer, are they?

  • Not for long.

  • KELLY: Chief.

  • Break off the entire block.

  • ALIEN 2: But, commander, our brothers have...

  • ALIEN 1: Silence.

  • Let them die with honor.

  • KELLY: Chief.

  • Go get her.

  • MASTER CHIEF: Kelly.

  • Kelly.

  • MASTER CHIEF: Dr. Halsey.

  • John.

  • - It's you? - Yes. I'm here to take you back.

  • - Sleep well, doctor? HALSEY: No thanks to their driving, yes.

  • MASTER CHIEF: You seem to be in one piece.

  • Maybe your luck has rubbed off on me.

  • MASTER CHIEF: We make our own luck...

  • ...but I'll always be there when you need me.

  • Don't make a girl a promise if you know you can't keep it.

  • - Still, thank you. - Sure.

  • - Dr. Halsey... HALSEY: It's not a proper rescue...

  • ...until you get us out of here, right?

  • MASTER CHIEF: Agreed. We need to move fast.

  • [BOTH GRUNTING]

  • [ALARM WAILING]

  • HALSEY: John, wait.

  • MASTER CHIEF: We're out of time. THEL: What? No.

  • ALIEN 2: We're clear of the magnetic interference.

  • Stand by for Slipspace jump.

  • They're trapped in Delta section.

  • Separate the moment we jump.

  • ALIEN 2: But what of the major and his group?

  • No matter.

  • He is already shamed.

  • His only path now is death or arbiter.

  • THEL: I had him.

  • Commander, you fool.

  • A thousand hells await you!

  • MASTER CHIEF: They're scuttling the ship.

  • And us with it.

  • But we make our own luck, remember?

  • MASTER CHIEF: What are you suggesting?

  • HALSEY: What else? We improvise.

  • MASTER CHIEF: Doctor, we've got company.

  • Can't you do anything?

  • Can't this bucket go any faster?

  • What's happening?

  • FRED [OVER RADIO]: Cutting it a little close, aren't we?

  • MASTER CHIEF: Fred.

  • KELLY: Doctor, are you all right?

  • Yes, I'm fine.

  • FRED: These Covenant rigs fly like rocks. It took us a bit to get rolling.

  • KELLY: Incoming.

  • HALSEY: What? CAPTAIN: Welcome back, Spartans.

  • HALSEY: You really are lucky. You know that.

  • MASTER CHIEF: Not lucky enough.

  • We lost two Spartans today.

  • Solomon and Arthur.

  • And that Elite we encountered, he was strong.

  • I have to be stronger.

  • HALSEY: We all have to be stronger.

  • Something tells me this is just the beginning.

  • [ENGLISH SDH]
