THE LOGOS OF MICROSOFT COMES SAME AS IN THE GAME, AND THEN THE REMAINING LOGOS OF PRODUCTION HOUSES.

---------------------------------
BLANK SCREEN
CORTANA'S VOICE:
They let me pick. Did I ever tell you that? Choose whichever Spartan I wanted. You know me. I did my research. Watched as you became the soldier we needed you to be. Like the others, you were strong and swift and brave. A natural leader. But you had something they didn't, something else no one saw but me. Can you guess? Luck. ...Was I wrong?

------------------------
SCENE 1
On Screen:
Doc. Hasley (Female),
Lieutenant Keys (Male),
Few Gaurds (Male),
10-11 Boys of Age 5-7 years.

ON ERIDANUS STAR SYSTEM, ERIDANUS 2, ELYSIUM CITY
DR. HASLEY AND LIEUTENANT KEYS ARE WALKING ON BOUNDARY OF SCHOOL PLAYGROUND.

KEYS:
Doc, may I ask why we are here?

HASLEY:
Patience Lieutenant, you'll know everything… soon. (Fiddles a coin in her hand and looks into the ground)
IN PLAYGROUND BOYS ARE PLAYING KING OF THE HILL. A 6 YEAR OLD BOY STANDS ATOP PUSHING AND PUNCHING ALL THE OTHERS COMING TO CONQUER HIS POSITION.

VOICE 1:
117… 117… there's some who would like to see you. Hurry up boy.

BOY'S MURMER "you are in trouble now John, good going"
LAUGHS AND SHOUTING
BOY COMES RUNNING TO HASLEY AND KEYS

HASLEY:
Hello dear… How are you?

JOHN:
I've done nothing wrong Mam! We were just playing and…

HASLEY:
Don't worry dear I'm not here to punish you. Would you like to play a game with me? (John nods)
(Hasley takes out a coin with one has the face of a man with long hair. The other side has an eagle holding arrows.)

This is a rare coin John. Now this is how we are going to play. I'll toss it and you have to guess which side it'll turn up. Ok? If you win you can keep the coin.
(John nods and Hasley flips the coin. John's hand snaps out and grabs the coin and he yells "Eagle")
(Hasley opens his fist to see eagle shining)

JOHN:
I won! Can I keep it now?

HASLEY LOOKS AT KEYS:
Yes you can John.

HASLEY TO KEYS
I hope you recorded that. We need all the data we can gather.

KEYS
Yes Doc. But I still don't get it. Why are we here? And why is that boy so special?

HASLEY
Lieutenant. We came here to check wether 117 is suitable for the program or not. Quite frankly, there are 162 such subjects and our funding doesn't even suffice for half of them. Coin was just a simple test to see if he is in or not and I think 117 is now going to be a part of SPARTAN-II program. Be it his quick reflexes or great evaluation speed, that boy certainly has luck on his side.

KEYS PUT HIS DATAPAD IN BAG AND BOTH HEAD TOWARDS AIRLIFT FOR HAN

What does the report says DÉJÀ?
DÉJÀ
Carbide ceramic ossification, Muscular enhancement, Catalytic thyroid implant and every other experiment has been successful subjected to certain risks Doc.

HASLEY
Risks are to be taken if we want them to succeed DÉJÀ. Bring them all in and get them ready for the procedure. (Sighs) I hate to do what is to be done.

DÉJÀ
Doc, are you sure you want to go ahead with this?

HASLEY
Yes Déjà. Call Mendez too. I'll need him by my side for this.

DÉJÀ
Done Doc. I hoped there would have been any other way to lower the risks.

HASLEY
ONI HAS projected it Déjà. Massive rebellion in next twenty years. If military does not prepare itself for a drastic action all will be lost. They need SPARTANS for this. They are our only hope. A perfect pin point strike force. They can prevent a civil war.

DÉJÀ
