The Battle of Installation 04 in September 2552 was a turning point in the Human-Covenant War, setting in motion events that would lead to the Great Schism and ultimately the end of the war. It began when the UNSC Pillar of Autumn, fleeing Reach along an ostensibly random trajectory, stumbled across and subsequently crash landed on an unidentified artificial ringworld: Alpha Halo. In the ensuing battle, it was revealed that the ring was part of a failsafe contingency to prevent the spread of an interstellar parasite, the Flood. If the need was dire enough, the Halo Array would sterilize the galaxy of life and deprive the Flood of its food supply. With the Flood released upon the ring and its caretaker threatening to fire the Array, it fell to John-117 to destroy the ring to stop its firing, contain the Flood outbreak, and prevent catastrophe. For this, he became a legend among the UNSC.

This galaxy is vast; its wonders and beauty are almost unfathomable. But the galaxy also hides dark secrets, some of which have lain dormant since the beginning of time itself. There is a danger in secrets, both in seeking and in knowing. Some things are meant to be hidden from view. Some mysteries defy understanding, and sometimes even the things we think we know are untrue. Some secrets should remain untouched.
