Thorne sits down, with Hoya standing over him.
Thorne looks up at Hoya.
Hoya and Thorne turn over to face DeMarco and Madsen.
DeMarco and Madsen laugh and bump fists while Hoya just scoffs. Grant shakes her head in mocking annoyance, then looks at Thorne.
Thorne looks down at his holoboard.
Thorne looks up to Hoya, who gestures at him to come over.
Majestic's Pelican is joined by dozens more as they approach the Infinity.
The Infinity holds position serenely above Earth as Majestic's Pelican lands at one of the hangar bay. The hatch opens and Majestic walks out, observing the deck. The shipboard AI, Roland, greets them shortly afterwards.
Roland salutes the Spartans and logs off.
As the squad gets in line, the camera turns over to show the Infinity's crew in action.
Sarah Palmer walks up to the squad.
Madsen moves, but is halted by DeMarco.
DeMarco approaches Palmer, clearing his throat.
DeMarco quickly stumbles back in line, embarrassment etched on his face.
All of Fireteam Majestic stands at attention and salutes.
Hoya chuckles as the squad is lead out of view.
Thorne looks around the bay one last time then proceeds to follow.
Infinity transits into slipspace. On the Infinity's bridge, Captain Thomas Lasky is observing a holographic map of Requiem with Roland. A Covenant fleet is occupying the path to the primary entrance portal.
Palmer walks into the bridge.
He nods to Roland, who salutes and logs off.
Palmer leans on the holo-desk and crosses her arms as Lasky looks up at her.
Lasky looks back at the map wearily.
As Palmer gives her speech, Majestic Squad prepares to be outfitted with their MJOLNIR GEN2 armor. A series of assemblers hold the armor's disparate sections, the pieces locking into place around their inner skinsuits.
The Infinity emerges from the rift and rams into the RCS cruiser, pulverizing the Covenant vessel. The bridge shakes violently as the impact registers.
A series of large hatches open beneath the Infinity.
As their magnetic clamps deactivate, multiple Strident-class heavy frigates emerge from the Infinity. They proceed to engage the Covenant fleet, all guns blazing.
The remaining cruisers release hundreds of Type-31 Seraph fighters, intent on swarming the Infinity's defenses. The human fleet retaliates with withering anti-ship fire.
A swarm of Pelicans depart the Infinity for the shield world below, dodging fire from nearby Seraphs. A squadron of F-41 Broadswords relieve the Pelicans, destroying the pursuers.
Majestic's Pelican speeds downwards, explosions trailing behind them.
The approach vector is littered with shipwrecks, forcing the Pelican into evasive maneuvers.
The Pelican successfully evade the wrecks, and proceeds into Requiem's main opening.
