Boomerang Company, also known as B Company, is an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper company in the UNSC Marine Corps, embedded within the 9th Shock Troops Battalion aboard the UNSC Spirit of Fire. They consider themselves to be the UNSC's most elite force of ODSTs.
Boomerang Company was present on the modified Phoenix-class colony ship on February 4, 2531 when it arrived at the Outer Colony of Harvest to fight the Covenant's Fleet of Glorious Interdiction there and, over the following weeks, witnessed the Battle for Arcadia and the Battle of the Etran Harborage. After the ship's Shaw-Fujikawa translight engine was sacrificed to destroy the Harborage, the members of the company entered cryostasis along with the rest of the crew.
Over twenty-eight years later on March 28, 2559, Boomerang and everyone else were awakened to find themselves drifting above the extragalactic Installation 00, also known as the Ark. There, the vessel's forces were forced to contend with the Banished, a heavily-armed faction of ex-Covenant that sought to control the Ark largely due to its capacity for producing Halo superweapons.
After the departure of a newly-created Halo ring put it beyond the Banished's grasp on April 2, 2559, the Mgalekgolo pair known as Colony hatched a plot which James Cutter, captain of the Spirit of Fire, had no choice but to respond to. Sunray 1-1, the lead element of Boomerang, was tasked with stopping Colony's scheme as part of Operation: SPEARBREAKER, in addition to participating in several other missions on the installation.
Known members of this unit include:
- Major Vaughan - CO of Boomerang Company and squad leader of Sunray 1-1.
- Warrant Officer Quinn
- Petty Officer Gruss
- Corporal Turpin
- Lance Corporal Sparks
- Corporal Kyla Emmett - Corporal of Lotus Squad.
