Chief Petty Officer John-117
"3...2...1...DRO-"was the last thing I heard before waking up in the ground."Trin,got a lock on my position and relay it to the others."I ordered my suit's internal AI,they were smart,but lacked emotion and humanity,I had only seen 1 smart AI in my life and that's it.Hopefully I live long enough to see the araw when all SPARTANS have one."Chief!Chief!Were are you!?"a familiar voice cried out,I was half buried in the ground from impact,but surround indicators and all other systems were functioning."His signal is coming from over there,and what d'ya know,he's six feet under.Let's just hope it hasn't come to that yet,not on our first op."a segundo voice said.They were my team,or two of them,but I hope to see if it's madami than two.As I start trying to move,all the dirt on tuktok of me is getting pushed aside sa pamamagitan ng two SPARTANS of Alpha-Pack,and now it's time to hear the news."Chie-I mean,John,it's great you're alive man,we thought you had been buried dead,because you know...six feet under" Lux sinabi in an out of breath voice. "It's ok,we'll all make it,let's just pray the others aren't KIA or MIA." I replied to my comrades,we started moving to the objective,two black-suited pairs of MJOLNIR Mark IV armor moving in the distance,the rest of the team,and out of all the team,I was the only one with a different color...green,just like our experience in the field."Maia,any news from your end?"I asked our medic of the commlink."No sir,just recovered these three and heading to the rally point,over."she answered on the other end of the line,all we had were person-to-person comms,the rebel forces here had jammers galore."Now might be a good time to introduce the team you didn't greet before we were blown outta the sky." Maia messaged,I hadn't acknowleged all the SPARTANS,and now I know how we got down here. "SPARTAN 267,Janice,I'm the team infiltrator." a female voice buzzed over the comm. "SPARTAN 351,Sam, I'm our teams Tech-head" another voice buzzed. "You already know me,SPARTAN 295,Curt,The team's designated marksman."the last SPARTAN buzzed on the line,that was all of us,just 7 SPARTANS in Alpha-Pack,we were sinabi to get a couple new recruits if we made it,and I was going to see that through.
After 1 klick marched,we came to a stop,something wasn't right about what we heard up ahead,we had no time to get sidetracked,but we recon'd anyway. "The UNSC has found us,we shot down a cargo shuttle snooping around our radar,but no cargo in it." a rebel communicated through a VidLink,it was sold UNSC tech,but they got it working,how? "Team 2,you flank right,Curt and I will watch from the ridge,Jet you go with them,they'll need a fifth man." I ordered,we needed to see what was going on,it might be crucial to the UNSC's security. "Roger Chief,moving out,and Curt...don't hit any of us on accident,that time in basic hurt,this time I will mess you up."Jet complied.This had to be well coordinated to carry this out.But as soon as everyone was carrying out the objectives,I caught something in my HUD,a UNSC officer tag.Then it came together,a man in green came up to the rebel leader of that post and handed him credits,he paid for the secret to be kept,but it won't be that way for long,not on my watch.So I snapped a frame on him and the rebel,scans on this traitor came up in results of UNSC databases,he was a scientist who worked on prototype weaponry,he even designed the MAC kanyon of the starship in orbit,things were getting intense,and if he wanted to,he could overload it from any connection-based UNSC terminal,that wasn't going to happen,and it will not. "Curt,you have any det. rounds or gas foils?" I asked him. "Yeah,why Chief?" he asked. "We have a new target..." I answered,just then a call came in from the ship,straight from the Captain. "SPARTAN 117,you will stand down,he is a valuable member of our espionage team,we had Beta-Pack and Claw-Pack take out the jammers in order to relay this message,DO NOT OPEN FIRE,HE IS SABOTAGING THEM!" the Captain ordered,was I about to disobey orders to see if I was wrong or not?Or will I stand down and wait to see if he is who the Cap. says. "Curt,stand down,just observe,order came from the top." I ordered. "Alpha-Pack is to continue mission,our other teams will take this over." the Cap. messaged "UNSC Blue Moon,out." the transmission ended. "SPARTANS,move out!" I ordered through the comm,whatever the reason we need aespionage unit,I will never know,but when this op is done,I'll do some data digging in the databases.This is a problem for another time,in another place,so let's keep going...
Chief and the SPARTANS of Alpha-Pack
