Again, this isn’t during the time period of the last story. This is before the actual Balto movie. This story is long.
UNSC database: We need 6 dogs to become ODST’s.
Nome: Alright, we have 6 dogs in mind, we will send them up.
UNSC database: Thank you.
Nome: Why are we using telegraphs when we have cell phones?
UNSC database: I don’t know.
“Hey, Nikki, Star, Kaltag, you’re coming with me to become ODST’s!” Steele yelled.
“You know Balto’s coming too right?” Kaltag said.
“Are you serious!?”
“Yes, so is Jenna.”
Steele howled for a call for Balto.
“Dude, get a cell phone.”
A Pelican came to pick up the dogs.
“Wait, I have to tell Ralph where I’m going,” Star said.
“No time, get in!”
“Ralph will kill me!”
“So will I if you don’t get in that Pelican!” Steele yelled.
Star stood low to the ground with his tail between his legs.
“This is the awesomest, the coolest, the sickest…” Kaltag ranted.
“This is pretty sweet!” Star interrupted.
Kaltag nailed Star just like he used to. About an hour later, they reach a Super Frigate.
Balto was trained to say no words and never to take off his helmet. Star was trained to carry a bunch of health packs and be the strongest. Kaltag was trained to be a sniper, Steele was the leader, Jenna was the official Alpha, and Nikki was the explosive expert. Balto went to sleep.
“The Navy put up a good fight, dere,” Nikki said.
“`Course they did, it’s Earth!” Star replied.
“Better late than never,” Kaltag said.
“How about you show a little respect, Kaltag!” Star said.
“I’m just saying, Star, they missed one.”
“No. They left it for us.”
The deploy siren rang.
“You know the music, time to dance!” Steele said.
Jenna was standing right next to Steele.
“Hello, beautiful!” Kaltag said.
The trio went to the weapon place.
“Replacements?” Jenna asked.
“This many years into the war? Who isn’t?”
“At least they listen.”
“To me and their not going to like what they hear.”
“Orders are orders!”
“Come on, what can be more important than that ship?”
“My orders! And Steele, call me captain! Show me where to sit.”
“What the hells kind of armor is she wearing, dere?” Nikki asked.
“Dunno, Nikki, I wasn’t looking at her armor,” Kaltag replied.
Star grabbed an SMG.
“What? It’s going to be close quarters.”
Kaltag handed Star a shotgun.
Star pushed the shotgun away. Steele and Jenna came, and Steele showed her where to sit.
“Cozy,” Kaltag said.
Steele came over.
“You gonna tell us her name?”
Steele grabbed the shotgun out of Kaltag’s hand and threw it down.
“Ms. Naval Intelligence! Our new leader, for now!”
“Oh brother, dere,” Nikki said
Steele grabbed a sniper rifle, and forced it into Kaltag’s hands.
“Check your mouths and get set for combat!”
“What am I supposed to do with this inside a Covenant ship?”
Kaltag approached Balto. He hit him with his sniper rifle.
“Wake up buttercup.”
Star pushed Kaltag out of the way.
“Relax, Balto, he doesn’t mean anything. Besides, if this is one of those times, it pays to be the strong silent type.”
Star closed the hatch to Balto’s pod and got in his own. The pods were released.
“Troopers! We are mean! Very, very mean!”
There was a smaller Frigate that was torn in half.
“I take it back, Navy got their butts kicked,” Kaltag said.
“Remember what I told you about being quiet?” Steele asked.
“Remember that as a standing order!”
“We’re tearing off on my mark!” Jenna said.
“What?” Star asked.
“We’re way off course, dere!”
“We’re headed exactly where I need to go!”
“We’re going to miss the Carrier, dere!” Nikki yelled.
“Radiation!” Star yelled.
The carrier started to move.
“Covenant set off a nuke?” Steele asked.
“No, the carrier’s going to jump! It’s a slip-space rupture!” Jenna yelled.
“EMP loosing power!” Star yelled.
“Stabilize, then pop your chutes, we’re going in hard!”
Most of the pods got sucked in. In fact, a pod that was on fire hit Balto’s pod making him go down hard.
New Mombasa city center
6 hours after drop.
Balto armed explosive bolts so he could get out of the pod. He had to fight a few Grunts and Brutes, and then he got to his destination. It was Jenna’s recon helmet. An Engineer had it then it hit a large TV in Tayari Plaza.
Immediately after drop
“Squad, what’s your status? Steele you with me?” Jenna asked.
“Yeah, give me a sec.”
“I can’t open my door. How about yours?”
Steele fell backwards because his pod landed upside down.
“When you’re done fooling around, come and help me.”
Steele encountered some Jackals.
“More Jackals with shields!”
“Overcharged plasma pistols will take out the shields.”
Steele advanced a little further.
“Almost there, what’s wrong?”
“They spotted me.”
“Damn it no!”
Steele reached Jenna.
Steele got the hatch open but Jenna wasn’t there. An Engineer came and harassed Steele.
Kaltag sniped the Engineer. After that, he saluted. The Engineer had Jenna’s helmet, and when it exploded, the helmet flew into the TV.
“Have you seen one of those before?”
Kaltag didn’t answer.
“You got your ears on?”
Kaltag still didn’t answer.
“I see, permission to speak smart ass.”
“No, I don’t know what it was.”
“Anyway, you hear word from Nikki, Star, Balto?”
“Let’s get out of here.”
Balto walked to Uplift Reserve to examine something Star left.
Uplift Nature Reserve
30 minutes after drop
Star ran out of his pod. A few bombers passed.
“Good work boys, but I’m keeping my boots on the ground.”
Star reached a Warthog.
“Trooper, over here help us secure this vehicle.”
A few choppers came.
“Watch that chopper. Hit it head-on and it will tear us to pieces.”
Star drove through some wastelands.
“Warn the Chieftain the enemy has breached the line!” a brute yelled.
“Go to the city center and help us with the primary objective!” the colonel said.
“What is the objective, colonel?” Star asked.
“You know that covenant carrier that slipped away from the city? We need to take it down!”
“Roger that! I’m Star Tyrant reporting for duty!”
Star got in view of a space elevator. Out of nowhere, it collapsed.
“What the hell just happened?”
“The slip space rupture must have weakened the support rings.”
“All units clear the area before more debris comes in.”
“Colonel, sir! Damn it, he’s gone,” a marine said.
“Is that all you got!?” Star said to some aliens.
“Head up the hill!”
Star was still in combat.
“I hope you got return tickets, because otherwise, you’re going home in a cosmic ambulance!”
“There’s a hole in the wall, drive through!”
Star drove through. There was a large distance from hole to the ground. When he got down, he fell out of the Warthog.
“Uh, Lord? I didn’t train to be a pilot. Tell me I don’t have anymore flying to do today!”
A bomber crashed right in front of him.
“So, was that a yes or a no?”
His Warthog exploded. That meant yes.
Balto returned on route. He got to a supply cache that had a Mongoose that would transport him around easier. He had to find a Gauss turret that Nikki used.
90 minutes after drop
Nikki approached a battle zone.
“Where’s the fight, dere?”
“Take a look genius,” a marine said.
Out of nowhere, a Wraith came into the battle zone. It launched a missile but Nikki was able to dodge it.
“Sun of a gun, dere!”
“Wanna live? Get your ass out of the street!”
“Wait for me, dere!” Nikki called out to a tank.
Nikki got in the tank and drove off killing a lot of Covenant.
“Trooper, all the marines are heading to a rally point near the Naval Intelligence building. We need your help to protect it.”
“Sure, as long as I get to drive the tank, dere.”
This was not a peaceful battle.
“Trooper, head through the security door on Kizingo Boulevard! It will take us to the rally point.”
“It’s about time! I’m ready to fire!” a marine said
“Marine, wait until they’re in the kill zone!” Star yelled.
“Ghosts! They’ll see me for sure, I got to take the shot!”
“I said hold your fire! Concentrate on the Wraith at the end of the highway!”
The marine got off the turret.
“Ahh, hell, I’ll do it myself!”
There were a bunch of Banshees coming for the two ODST’s and remaining marines.
“Star, what are youse doing up dere?”
“I’m out of rockets, kill that Wraith!”
Nikki got on the top of the hill with Star.
“Ahh, crap! Watch the door!”
“Youse are going home in an ambulance, dere!” Nikki yelled.
“Me?” Star asked.
“No, the aliens, dere.”
Nikki headshot a Grunt.
“Right between the eyes!”
“Some Covenant dropped behind us, they must know this is our rally point!”
“Come on, we got ammo and weapons on the high ground, move it, move it!”
Some Phantoms dropped aliens and another Wraith. Star and Nikki successfully fought off all the aliens.
“You hear from Steele?”
“No, Kaltag neither, dere.”
“I guess it’s just you and me.”
“My vote, hold up and wait for backup, dere.”
“Thank God!” a marine said, “Does either of you know how to use explosives?”
“Your vote got over ruled,” Star said.
Balto continued his patrol. He found an explosive handle.
Oni Alpha Site
2 hours after drop
A few Wraiths came onto the highway that Star and Nikki were about to blow up.
“Do youse want to do this dere? Be my guest. But this isn’t a job youse want to rush.”
“Signal’s good. Arm the other detonators and pull back to me!” a cop said
“Come on tough buy, dere, we’s gotta blow this bridge.”
Star and Nikki ran to cover.
“Star, arm the other charges, dere!”
“What about those Wraiths?”
“Forget about dem, we’s have explosives to set.”
Star armed the rest of the charges. The bridge soon blew up.
“We have to keep the Covenant out of the building!”
Star and Nikki came in the building.
“We gotta blow this building!” the leader said.
“You told us to protect this building!”
“Well there’s Covenant coming in!”
Star and Nikki secured their area. They got on an elevator where a bunch of Drones started attacking them.
“Where did all these buggers come from?” Star asked.
“Their coming in through the vents!” a cop said.
“Finally, a good reason to blow this place up, dere,” Nikki said.
“We have an evac bird picking us up.”
They got into the Pelican.
“Do you know a gunnery Sergeant Steele?” the cop asked.
“Sure do’s,” Nikki said.
“We know where he is.”
“Can you take us there?” Star asked.
Nikki bumped Star.
Nikki displayed 3 fingers on his paw, he counted down to 1. After 1 he made a crank move. The building blew up as he made the crank move.
“Maybe this day isn’t so bad after all!” Star yelled.
The cops took them to Steele. Balto threw the handle into the water. He went to find a Sniper Rifle stuck on some power lines.
He recognized this Sniper Rifle. It belonged to Kaltag. It was very jacked up, and something had happened. But what?
3 hours after drop
“Clear?” Steele asked.
Kaltag was looking through his Sniper Rifle scope for Phantoms.
“Yeah, we’re good.”
“Hey Balto, you out there? Respond, that’s an order!” Steele said.
This was 3 hours before Balto became conscious.
“Give it up. Even if he isn’t dead he’s still lost in that soup. Our comms can’t do that.”
“Oh give it up, huh? What if you were down there?”
“Just saying. I’m not dead.”
“You’re a piece of work, Kaltag.”
“Welcome aboard, dere ladies!” Nikki said over the radio from a Pelican about to come, “Next stop, anywhere but here, dere.”
“Banshees on your six! Hit the deck.” Steele yelled.
“We’re loosing her! Watch out!” Star yelled.
The Pelican crashed.
“Alive or dead, we’re pulling them out, you here me! Now make some noise, I got your back. Back inside. Let‘s find that Pelican.”
“What about all those Covenant we side swept on the way up?”
“Now we get to kill them.”
“Thanks for picking such a tall building, I’m really digging all these stairs.”
“Do you ever get tired of bitching, Kaltag?”
“Do you ever get tired of busting my balls?”
They reached some Covenant.
“They haven’t seen us, pick a target, then take it down,” Steele said.
Romeo sniped a turreter.
“That did it, shoot and scoop.”
They eventually reached the Pelican.
“Pelican’s down, we lost the pilot on impact, but the rest of us are ok,” Star said.
“Not for long. Banshees inbound,” Steele said.
“Why am I not surprised.”
“Conserve ammo, this is going to be one hell of a battle.”
They fought off all of the Phantoms and Banshees from ground weaponry. But there was one Phantom that survived and was carrying a Chieftain! It struck Kaltag. But between Kaltag’s chest and the Gravity Hammer, was Kaltag’s Sniper Rifle.
It save his life, if it wasn’t for the Sniper Rifle, Kaltag would have been torn in half. Before the drop, Kaltag was complaining about carrying a sniper around. This is a good reason he had it. The Sniper Rifle was jammed on the Chieftain’s Gravity Hammer. Brutes are strong, so the Brute Chieftain got the Sniper Rifle off, and through it down.
There was at least a mile distance from the aerial platform to the ground, but the Sniper Rifle got caught on the power lines. The Chieftain was about to finish Kaltag off when Steele jumped on him. Steele stabbed the Chieftain in the neck with his knife. Nikki helped to get the Chieftain down. Star, with one melee, finished of the Chieftain. The Chieftain’s carcass was crushing Steele.
“Get this thing off of me!” Steele ordered.
Steele got to Kaltag
“Not good!” Kaltag answered.
“We’s are going to get you out of here, dere,” Nikki said.
“Not by air, we’re not,” Star said.
“That’s alright, I know another way.”
Balto tried to get the Sniper Rifle to shoot. It was screwed. He threw it on the ground. He got back in his Mongoose, then went to a foam canister. The foam canister helped heal Kaltag so he could walk easier. Kaltag also has a punctured lung, so the foam helps fill in the puncture.
5 hours after drop
“Steele youse have to see this, dere.”
Their route was flooded.
“This means we’re screwed, right?”
A Phantom came in. Everyone got out of it, so it was parked. Even when it’s parked, a Phantom still hovers.
“Not yet, we‘re gonna steal that ride. It’s landing! Nikki you’re with me!”
“Steele, I can fly a Pelican, dere, but a Phantoms? It’s been years since I’ve even took a simulation, dere.”
“Well let’s see what you remember, Trooper. Move!”
“Steele, more of those floating squids! (Referring to Engineers) Should we’s smoke dem, dere?”
“They’re between us and that Phantom, what do you think?”
Steele took a parked Banshee.
“Nikki, go up that lift, and steal that Phantom!”
“Here goes nothin.”
Star was supporting Kaltag while Steele was protecting Nikki in a Banshee.
“Cabin secure, dere, I’s think.”
Nikki picked up Kaltag and Star. Kaltag got up and walked into the beam as if he wasn’t even hurt.
“All set back dere?”
“Yeah, Kaltag, let’s man these turrets.”
A few shade turrets were firing at the stolen Phantom. There was a security door Steele had to get. A few Banshees came out.
“Banshees in the tunnel!” Star yelled.
“That’s where we’s are headed dere!”
“Take them out!” Kaltag said to Steele.
They came through the gate and killed a Wraith. There was another security door. This one they passed right through, but Steele did have to shoot down a Phantom.
“Go back home to Planet Jackass!” Star yelled.
“Another locked door, hit the over ride.”
“Damn, door’s jammed, must have lost power, I’ll go in on foot and try to gain connection.”
Steele successfully got it open.
“I got some bad news.”
“What you really are going to make us walk out of this city?” Kaltag asked.
“We got a scarab tank ahead of us.”
“This is the best mission ever!”
A scarab, despite it being a vehicle, has a mind of its own. Steele destroyed it.
They opened the next security door to the exit.
“Holy shit, we hit the squid jackpot!” Kaltag yelled.
“Star clear, this is going to be one hell of a chain reaction!”
Steele destroyed the generators. Both of the flying crafts got out alive. Nikki turned on the beam of the Phantom. Steele ejected out of the Banshee, then got put in.
“Keep her steady, Nikki. You doing ok?”
“Just glad we didn’t go with the first plan,” Kaltag replied, “Look at those tunnels, if they’re not flooded, they’re probably packed with buggers. I wouldn’t go down there even if you ordered me to.”
Steele had a flashback about Jenna.
“Nikki turn around, and then find a place to set us down.”
“What! Why, dere!?”
“I lost something! Now I know where to find her.”
Nikki turned around. Meanwhile, Balto checked to see if there was anything left. He saw a Phantom pass by, and it was allied. He knew he had to got to their location fast. But he heard a radio call from Jenna.
“Hello, this is Jenna, can anyone hear me I’m…” It was dropped.
Screw trying to get out of here, I’m going to save Jenna. Balto thought. There was a Chieftain, but instead of a Gravity Hammer, it had a Rocket Launcher.
He got to an elevator, or the shaft. The door opened but there was no elevator. Balto backed up a step or so, then he jumped onto the shaft rope. When he got down, there was another message from Jenna.
“Can anyone hear me? I’m on sublevel 9 and I’m low on ammo…” It was dropped again.
Balto saw he was on sublevel 7. He had to get to sublevel 9, and rescue Jenna. There were a few dead Grunts on the ground. He had a few battles, and he reached a cop that helped him.
“Do it now!”
“There is a block, expect delays,” a screen said
“But I’m going to dye any minute!”
Balto cleared every Covenant around.
“Thanks trooper, they almost had me done! Go down to the next level, my crew is stacked.”
Balto got the door open.
Balto and the cop fought off the Drones. They got to another door so they could get to sublevel 9. When Balto got down, a whole swarm of Drones appeared. In fact the cop got trapped up-top and soon died.
“Drones, on your level! Oh no, they’re up here too! No, AHHHHHH!”
Balto could not believe these events. This was at least 8 hours after their drop. Balto eventually reached another Chieftain. This one didn’t have a Gravity Hammer or Rocket Launcher. It had a detached plasma turret. He fought off the Chieftain and all the Brutes.
“Steele, I’m not sure if you can hear me, but, I’m sorry. I should have told you more about this mission and what’s going on,” Jenna said over the radio.
He eventually got to a locked door. Knock before entry, he thought. Jenna opened the door with her pistol to Balto’s head.
“Oh, it’s you. I thought… What was your name again?”
They heard something, either a Drone or an Engineer.
“Get in, now! Follow me. Some idiots blew a building with the elevator shaft.”
Star and Nikki, Balto thought.
“See that? That’s the Superintendent, it powers the whole city, we need to secure it. The problem is, there only one way in, through the hive.”
A Drone hive. This will be fun. Balto thought.
“It wouldn’t be good going alone. I knew I need backup. You’re here, luckily. You’ve been here all night fighting on the surface?”
Balto nodded his head.
“If you spent that time in your pod, you must know your stuff. Show me.”
I can’t let the same thing happen to Jenna as that poor officer.
They reached the drone hive. They had one massive Drone battle, but they made it. But, there was a Chieftain with other Brutes.
“Open this door, demon!”
“You will pay for your incidents!”
Balto and Jenna fought off the Brutes. When they got through, they were scanned. Balto wanted to fire at an incoming creature. He knew it was an Engineer.
“Hold your fire!”
The Engineer named Virgil came to them.
“We’ve seen them before, we’ve never gotten this close. The best we can tell, they’re prisoners, or slaves, either way, they don’t like the Covenant any more than we do. I spotted this one in the tunnels. This thing is smarter than any human, any living being on the planet. This ones holds Superintendent’s data and information. Everything we want to know about the Covenant, this knows.”
There were Brutes appearing everywhere.
“Damn, the Drones must have set the alarm! The Brutes will kill this every chance they get. We got to move!”
They saw an ODST. Jenna’s face widened.
“Jenna? Where the hell are you?”
“Data center, we’re coming out.”
“What ever you do, don’t shoot anything pink!”
Balto got down to Steele with Jenna and Virgil trailing behind them.
“Good to see you.”
“Virgil, open the door.”
“With this alien protecting us, feel free to fill me in when ever.”
“Not now, Steele.”
They got to a locked door.
“Damn, it’s locked,”
“Don’t worry, we have a key.”
“I’ve seen hundreds of these things today, why is this one so important?”
“It knows things. Hey you didn’t kill any of these did you?”
“No, maybe one or two.”
“How was I supposed to know?”
They reached an elevator. Steele took off his helmet.
“Whew, Lord, that thing stinks! Kinda reminds me of my…”
Jenna punched Steele. Jenna could tell she punched him hard, because she could feel pain on her paw.
“What was that for?”
“Abandoning the mission!”
“What mission, my crew was scattered…”
Jenna pinned Steele to the wall. He was expecting another punch, but he got a nice long kiss.
“For coming back.”
Lucky ass, Balto thought in his head.
Virgil could read Balto’s mind. He let out a purr. Is he gay? Balto thought again. Virgil looked away.
“Thank you,” Jenna said.
“You did good, Balto, no doubt,” Steele said.
They got out of the elevator. It was already daylight.
“There’s a watch tower, we can’t advance!”
Balto and Steele cleared out the area.
“Where are we going exactly?”
“Waterfront Highway, fastest way out of the city.”
Virgil was going slow.
“Can’t that thing move any faster?”
“All the gunfire, it’s frightened.”
“Do you want me to give it a push?”
“Just trying to help.”
They eventually got to the entrance of the highway.
“When did this happen?” Jenna asked pointing at a Frigate.
“They started showing up last night,” Steele replied.
“And you waited until now to tell me?”
“Oh, I’m sorry, I was a little busy making sure perfume here didn’t take a round and blow us all up!”
Virgil flew away, out of sight from Steele.
“Steele, why are you always thinking with a gun?”
“Me? What about you? Oh, so big on ONI streets, couldn’t give a guy a yes or no answer.”
“That’s not fair!”
“You got that right!”
“I never thought I’d see you again.”
“Well here I am!”
Another Frigate appeared.
“We need to move. Were you too busy to plan out our exit?”
“I stole a Phantom, and hid it down by the shipyards. But I only have room for two.”
Steele used a Warthog to get to the place.
“So that things going to have to sit in your lap.”
Steele was pointing to where he though Virgil was.
“The Engineer! where did it go?”
Virgil was in an Elephant that Steele and Jenna didn’t notice. Balto saw Virgil go in, but he was trained to say no words.
“Keep me covered,” Jenna said going into the elephant.
“Take the wheel Balto, I’ll turret.”
Jenna went crazy at the wheel of the elephant.
“Uhh driver? Pick a lane.”
“It’s a little crowded in here. The Engineer is doing something with the control circuits. Oww, watch where you put that.”
They drove a distance. An over shield appeared on the elephant.
“Whoa, what just happened?”
“The Engineer found a way to put over shields on the outer plating.”
They drove a little further.
Another Frigate passed overhead. Before long, Phantoms appeared.
“So may Frigates!”
There was a crashed Phantom.
“Hey, a Gauss Hog! This things beat up, change vehicles!”
There was a scarab coming.
“Scarab! Must have dropped from one of the Cruisers. Just keep driving, it hasn’t spotted us!”
“How the hell did you make it down this highway in one piece?”
“There wasn’t this much Covenant last night.”
“Scorpion tank! We need the extra firepower.”
The two switched from Hog to tank.
“Assault Carrier, 10 o’clock eye. Look at the size of that thing!”
It was the one that the ODST’s were originally going to attack. It’s larger than any other Frigate of the Covenant. They got a little further.
“It’s charging its expatiation beam!”
“But the thick side is on the other side of the city.”
The beam was activated.
“NO! There going to burn this city following the entire earth! Those Covenant bastards!”
“We just have to focus on getting the Engineer out of here.”
“Right, ok. Mickey, change of plans, you’re coming to us!”
“The sky is a little dere.”
“Just do it. What ever you do, watch out for that Carrier!”
They got further.
“Scarab! Look out, this one’s onto us!”
The Scarab shot it’s beam onto the elephant.
“We’re going too fast, I can’t stop!”
“Jenna, talk to me!”
“The asset, it’s ok.”
“Screw the alien, what about you?”
“This garbage truck has had it!”
“There’s a park north side of the highway. Jenna, stay here, Balto, help me secure the building.”
Balto accidentally fired his gravity hammer, and hit Steele.
“What the hell!”
That also alarmed the grunts.
“Nikki what your ETA?”
“I had to’s reroute dere, the whole damn city’s on fire.”
“Trooper, I have a tear one asset that’s wanted dead by the Covenant! Floor it!” Jenna said.
“Hostile Phantoms coming in!”
“Wraiths on the highway!”
“That’s not good!”
They managed to fight off all the aliens.
“Good work, Nikki! Park and pick us up!
Star came out.
“Is that thing safe?”
“As long as it doesn’t get hit.”
The Frigate came. Jenna tried to get the Virgil into the Phantom.
“Come on damn it, move!”
Jenna looked at Steele.
Steele helped get Virgil into the Phantom. Nikki flew away just in time.
“What can I say? It was one hell of a night.”
Star, Balto and Steele got into the Phantom. Balto and Steele got Kaltag off the turret.
“We went through hell for that?” Kaltag asked.
“It knows things.”
“I wasn’t talking about the alien.”
“Nikki, I’m sending you a co-pilot.”
“Come on, I don’t want one of those things in here!”
“It won’t bite, and unlike you, it knows what to do to keep those cruisers off our tail.”
Nikki flew to base. After that, they all went home. Jenna help save the world from the Covenant.
The events of the last story take place next story.
