Battle of Cephei Prime

Almost 100 years after the fall of the Covenant and the destruction of the Flood the UNSC is back and better than ever. And the mysterious ONI Section Three somehow managed to create an army of Spartan-IVs. Nobody knows how, but they don't really care anyway. Now the UNSC is reclaiming all of its old systems including one called Cephei. This system contains only one inhabitable planet but that planet it so much like Earth that the UNSC has to do whatever it can to reclaim it.

After 2 colony ships mysteriously disappeared when sent to Cephei Prime 5 of the UNSC's most powerful ships(the UNSC Titan, UNSC Leviathon, UNSC Cyclops, UNSC Behemoth and UNSC Hammer) were sent to solve the problem. The UNSC Titan was carrying a special load to be sent to the planet's surface and kill anything that might threaten a colony. This load is called Alpha Squadron. A team of about 100 Spartan-IVs led by the last living Spartan-II(ME) who survived in cryo on Reach for 120 years. The space battle will be covered by the UNSC Titan Fleet and Omega Squadron.

Nobody knows how ONI got the research for Spartan-IVs as Dr. Halsey went missing after Spartan-IIIs. The only technological advancements are the use of Super MACs in ships, experimental plasma weapons, improved slipspace jumps and obviously improved weapons. Nothing too major because humanity has spent most of the last 100 years taking back its old systems and killing remaining pockets of Covenant. It took Humanity about two decades to rebuild Reach and another 3 decades to renew the UNSC to its original strength.

A little more backstory about the Spartans and what happened in the last century would be nice to know. For example, technological advancements? What's so different about the new Spartans from the old ones.

Beyond Redemption, my new part time job. Awesome job by Burngirl, by the way.

Like I said most of that is a mystery. Nobody knows how ONI got the research for Spartan-IVs as Dr. Halsey died(I think) after Spartan-IIIs. The only technological advancements are the use of Super MACs in ships, experimental plasma weapons, improved slipspace jumps and obviously improved weapons. Nothing too major because humanity has spent most of the last 100 years taking back its old systems and killing remaining pockets of Covenant and Flood.

Dude, Halsey didn't die. She got trapped in a slipspace pocket or something with a group of SPARTAN II's and III's. Also, the Flood were all on High Charity, which then crashed on the Ark. Chief promptly blew that to smithereens, and the very last remaining Flood were on the unfinished Halo when the Chief sent that up in smoke too, taking the Ark with it. So the idea that the UNSC continued to hunt Flood makes no sense.
Also, I doubt it would take a hundred years to wipe out the last pockets of Covenant. Without the leadership of the Prophets, the Brutes returned to a quarrelling, tribal state, and the Elites hunted down most of these within a few years of the war ending. It's all out there on either Halo Waypoint or Halopedia.

I'm sorry, but the backstory is both lacking in detail and incorrect on several points. Call me a geek, but if you're gonna do it, do it right.

EDIT: Oh, and really? SPARTAN 118? C'mon, you can do better than that.

Well sorry but the only other 2 spartans I have enough info on are a girl and a Spartan-IV. Also, the UNSC not only had to wipe out pockets of covvie resistance, they also had to rebuild their 'empire'. They did a lot. Read it again if you think I am wrong.

Saint, this is a serious topic I don't think you even read it you probably just looked at some of Darkwoods's posts and thought this was a joke.

Why would we want to capture and colonize an inhabitable planet?

Because, it is a place for humanity to put a colony. Also the definition of inhabitable - fit for habitation; "the habitable world. And lazerdragoon I might be able to find a picture that would work for your guy.

Wow. That was actually a good signup. If you seriously want to join you could be commanding the UNSC Titan in the battle over Cephei Prime if you want.



EDIT: I am going to put in ODST and captain signups if anyone is interested. ODSTs will be fighting the battle down on Cephei with Alpha Squadron.

Role: SPARTAN IV
Name/Rank: S-666 Josh "GRIMWRATH"/Sub-Lieutenant
Age: 31
Gender: Male
Primary Weapon: Dual spec-ops contraband energy swords, the ones that are red.
Secondary Weapon: Dual knives.
Personality: GRIMWRATH has felt nothing but hate for most of his life. An unintended side-effect from his SPARTAN IV augmentations, he copes with this by brutally eviscerating his enemies, however he has a sense of honor and lets his enemies have a fair chance to fight him.
Appearance: His armor is standard MARK-VII MJOLNIR ARMOR, with black primary and crimson secondary color. He has a built in black ghillie hood that he wears all the time, and his helmet has a solid black visor. He has the word "KILL" etched into both shoulder pads of his armor. He also has a UNSC "HOPPER" JUMP PACK that is also black.

Though he rarely takes off his helmet, this is his what his face looks like.

I would greatly prefer if the Rear Admiral was directly in the battle. He is a hands on kind of guy even if he doesn't have as much battle-capability as everyone else. He needs to be at the frontline or I rescind my application.
