UNSC Transmission 116749-09
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
United Nations Space Command Transmission 116749-09 was a restricted communiqué sent from Vice Admiral Preston J. Cole to Admiral Dale Kilkin on March 9, 2543. It contained several requests in preparation for the impending Battle of Psi Serpentis.
UNSC Transmission 116749-09 was later included within the intelligence report Historical/Psychological Analysis of Cole, Preston J., sent by Codename: SURGEON to Codename: USUAL SUSPECTS in 2552. SURGEON maintained that while seemingly innocuous, many of Cole's requests in the transmission support the contention that Cole planned to faked his own death at Psi Serpentis. For instance, the requisitioned Archer missiles and cruiser UNSC Io were likely intended to provide a smoke screen and decoy, allowing Cole to perform an in-atmosphere Slipspace jump. Similarly, the FTL manifold calculations that Cole requested might have enabled such a feat. In particular, SURGEON believed that Cole's personnel transfer request was meant to ensure he had a loyal crew to help facilitate his desertion.
