"Shall I completely brief you on your mission?" asked Loki as the Master Chief removed him from his helmet and locked him into an AI pedestal.
"Go ahead." he said, and he started checking his weapons.
"Yes. Well, remember at Lost Souls Reef, when that marine destroyed those two ships and tricked the Covenant into telling us everything?"
"Yes...What about it?"
"According to the information we recieved, the destroyer that we are about to fight happens to be a very important part of that attacks on Reach, Sigma OctanousIV, and hundreds of other outer colonies...And today, this one ship was responsible for the glassing of 40% of Earth's surface. We can't let it resume these actions on other planets."
The Master Chief got out of his seat and walked into the back part of the Longsword. "Tell me when I need to jump. I'll be ready."
"Sure." He heard the pilot say, and he returne back to flying the bomber.
The Chief opened a view screen on the wall opposite of him and watched as one of the cruisers surrounding the head ship release a dozen Seraph fighters.
"Longsword Tree! You need to take those out now!" The pilot barked into his mic. "Longsword One, you use your MAC Gun to take out the other cruiser so it can't release it's fighters. Now!"
He heard the other pilots approve and saw them leave the pack.
He concentrated mainly on the Longsword going for the cruiser. It dodged two of the ships plasma missles, got 200 kilometers away from it's hull, and fired its cannon.
The bottom of the fighters bow exploded, and the MAC round struck the Covenant ship.
The cruiser's hull shattered and was engulfed in flames. But it wasn't a complete victory. The Longsword shook violently and nose dived into space beyond.
It couldn't handle the shock.
He switched his gaze to the other fighter. It had three holes in it's left wing, but had already destroyed ten of the twelve Seraphs.
It fired four Archer Missles, killed the last two, and regrouped with the rest of the pack.
"Alright," the pilot directed his words at John, "We're over the MAC gun platform now. Get ready to jump when I open th hatch."
He clipped his SMGs to his gun holsters and got ready to jump.
The hatch opened, and he could see the platform below. It had holes in it frome where it was hit with torpedoes.
He sprinted towards the opened hatch, jumped, and plumeted towards the barrel of one of the guns.
He closed in on the platform fast. He saw a plasma missle split the air 20 meters in front of him, and HUDs field vision quickly tented itself to the bright light.
He continued to fall until he was a kilometer away from the giant barrel.
He strched out his arms, hoped for the best, and impacted with the gun.
He clasped his arms around the barrel and slid down towards the base of the barrel.
He continued to walk across the hull of the platform until he came to a dropoff in it's center. The hole was three hundred kilometers wide and seemed to be hollow.
he unlatched a battle rifle from his back and zoomed into the hole.
He turned on his night vision to try and get a better look.
He couldn't see a thing. He opened up a MAC Gun Platform guide on his HUD and choosed the map database.
the crease seemed to be a bay for UNSC ships to dock in when they needed repairs or needed protection. It also had a large blast door in which he could use to make his way to the guns crontrol room.
He reattached his rifle, made up his decision, and jumped.
He landed on a slanted support beam, which protected his armor of any shock when he hit the bottom. He stood up in a plasma glassed chamber and looked at the carnage made by a rougue plasma torpedoe.
Three Halcyon ships were split in two, and the opposite chamber was completely destroyed. Good thing he didn't land their, he thaught.
He walked over to the blast door, activated it it with the right code on the number pad (1337) and walked through.
This part of the platform was untouched other than some large scorch maks on its floor made by plasma missles.
"well, here I go." the Chief told himself, and started climbing a vertical power conduit to the second floor.
He stopped at the second floor and jumped off. On this floor, there was thirty dead Elites (black OPS, at that) and about seventy dead marines and Techies. He walked down the bloody corridor and into an elevator tha t took him to the control room, where he met someone that he thaught had died along time ago...Chief Mendez was seated at on of the Control Room's many stations, trying to bring on of the guns back on line...
