For decades, humanity, under the leadership of the United Nations Space Command (UNSC), has been at war with an alliance of alien species, called the Covenant. The Covenant relentlessly destroys human colonies, they are motivated by the belief in a "Great Journey". This false religon is the cause of genecide of the human race. The year is now 2552, Planet Reach is the last human colony between Earth and the Covenant. If Reach is destroyed, humanity will no doubt, also fall.
Even before the humans ever made contact with the Covenant, the UNSC was already fighting another threat. Previous Facist and Communist groups as well as others opposed to UNSC law, started rebelling against the UNSC. These insurrectionists have troubled the UNSC's security for many years...
SABRE LAUNCH/RESEARCH RANGE, FARKAS LAKE, EPOSZ, PLANET REACH
FEBUARY 14, 2552, 14:45 HOURS.
On the shores of Farkas Lake...
There is a classified UNSC base...
The base is a research and launch station for a prototype space-superiority fighter...
The YSS-1000, also known as the Sabre.
The Sabre Program has been a flying rumor for years, and when there is a rumor, the insurrectionsts will look everywhere to find a program research facility...
Dr Pete Austin: Troopers, it's time for patrol!
Corporal Robert Williams: I'm on it sir.
Robert heads out for the hourly "tour" of the beach...
Robert:The beach looks clean from this angle.
Robert:Nothing visitors at the beach, as usual.
Dr:Wait! We've just lost contact with command!
Robert: I see an unidentified helicopter heading this way!
Robert:I'll go check it out.
Robert heads torwards the beach...
Meanwhile, the helicopter is already leaving...
Robert: I have a visual! It's the innies!
Dr:Until we regain connection with command, we'll have to hold out for as long as possible.
Robert: Understood sir. I'm heading back to base now.
Robert gets ready for the fight...
Private Nick Smith: I'm here.
Nick: we need to advance to those two pieces of cover.
Nick: Robert, you take that barrier
Nick:I'll take those sandbags.
Robert: On my mark... 3.2.1 Mark!
Meanwhile at the beach, the rebels have already set up a machine gun turret.
The turret begins to fire at the army troopers.
Robert watches helplessly
Nick:I'm not done yet...
Nick pulls out a grenade...
and throws it with all his might.
The grenade lands near the turret.
and the explosion destroys the turret and the operator.
Nick gasps from the pain of his wound...
...and is unaware of the rebels...
...crawling out of the lake!
Nick: Sabre control, the innies are going around through the lake, they're trying to fl-
Nick is dead.
Robert:Sabre control, we have a casualty, I'm on my own!
Dr:my technician and I will have to fight.
The technicians run for the weapons rack.
Robert: don't come outside sir, it's too dangerous, stay inside and suprise the innies when they come in!
Rebel leader: what a pathetic defense.
Robert:Watch your mouth, or it'll get blown off!
The rebel leader is hit.
The leader is dead.
Second in command:He killed our leader! For that he must be killed!
Robert takes cover to avoid the angered rebel.
Second in command: I will take care of that last trooper. All of you will go inside the facility. Show them no mercy! Then take the ship's blueprints and meet me outside for extraction.
Robert shoots again...
...and hits another rebel.
Second in command: Die!
Robert is hit in the shoulder.
he pulls out his combat knife.
...and stabs the second in command.
The other rebel heads inside the base, expecting no resistance.
...but his guess is prooved otherwise.
Robert: The innies are charging in a vehicle, we're outmatched!
Robert: He's got a rocket launcer!
Dr: We're saved! I have contact with command!
Command: All orbital denfese stations are online. We will bombard at your command, give us the coordinates and-
Robert: The coordinates are 35613-Sab-26! Fire NOW!
Command:Copy that, shoot is ago, out.
The rebel jeep is destroyed.
Command: pelicans full of marines are on their way to secure the area.
The pelicans arrive
Sarge:GoGoGo! the corps ain't paying us by the hour!
