> The most
> interesting part is the right side, which gives a summary of
> Halo's background. As near as I can make it out:

> About Halo: Halo is a sci-fi action game of epic battl,
> exploration, and discovery. Players wage a high-tech guerilla
> war, on foot, in vehicles, in the air and beneath the surface of
> an alien ring construct. working sometimes in concert with other
> AI characters, but more often alone, you must improvise to
> survive your fight against an overwhelming and heavily armed
> alien force.

> The Story:

> Hundreds of years from now, Earth's fledgling planetary empire
> has been drawn into a merciless war with a consortium of alien
> races known as the Covenant. Covenant technology is far beyond
> that of Earth, and the humans are losing. Whole planets are
> being destroyed. Billions have died. It's only a matter of time
> before the Covenant find Earth, and destroy it.

> The most recent human planet to be discovered iby the Covenant
> fleet is Reach, population 700 million. The Covenant annihilate
> it utterly. A single human corvette escapes the battle. In a
> desperate attempt to lead the Covenant away from Earth, the ship
> charts a course for a distant unexplored system.

> In a move that baffles the Commander and her crew, the entire
> Covenant fleet gives chase.

> When the humans arrive at their destination, they find an alien
> artifact of enormous size in orbit between a gas giant and its
> moon. They have found HALO, a ring ten thousand kilometers in
> diameter, with a breathable atmosphere. On its inner surface,
> HALO has oceans, continents, varied climatic zones. It's a
> habitat.

> The Covenant destroy the human ship in a battle near HALO, but a
> portion of the human crew escapes to land in scattered groups on
> the surface of the ring. One of the marines, more skilled than
> the rest, starts a guerilla war against the Covenant, trying to
> stop them from learning the secrets of HALO.

> This marine is you. The game begins.

> __________________________

> Well now we know what Reach is, in the HBC Transmissions...

> One marine, more skilled than the rest? That sounds familiar ;)
