AFTER THE COVENANT BOMBARDED A UNSC EXCAVATION SITE. COLONIAL MINERS VOLUNTEERED TO EXTRACT AN ORE NEEDED TO FORTIFY THE MASTER CHIEF'S EXOSKELETON.

INITIATING VIDEO LOG...

The camera shows glimpses of Miners running away from collapsing rocks. An alarm is going off with the miners yelling and falling. Things start to calm down with the remaining miners standing in a cavern with the helmet lights the miners are wearing lighting it up.

A miner proceeds to remove his helmet, and walks to the center of the cavern, where he proceeds to sing.

  • Miner (Singing): "Buried in the heart of an ancient moon. He always dreamed of the fight."

The camera looks at the other miners, who are watching the miner singing.

  • Miner (Singing): "Glory was won while his brothers were lost. In battles he waged in the night."

The cavern echos distant booms from the bombardment outside, while debris fall and the miners watch. The singing miner has a tear go down the right side of his face while he sings.

  • Miner (Singing): "His life blown away in the blood that he gave. An offering unrecognized."

A female miner passes a rock to another minor who proceeds to write something on the wall of the cavern.

  • Miner (Singing): "Never became what he already was, the darkness that brings on the light."

The rest of the miners start to join in on the singing.

  • Miners (Singing): "Never became what he already was, the darkness that brings on the light."

The singing becomes more intense, each time the rock hits the wall.

  • Miners (Singing): "Never became what he already was, the darkness that brings on the light."

The miners look up as the cave finally collapses showing light from outside. Leaving only the message that was written.
