Super Serious AI and the Spartan

By Efrain Morales

Other / Scifi

Chapter 1: First meeting

Humanity has reached to the stars and start colonizing in the planets where humanity could live in peace despite of rebellions. However, a powerful Alien civilizations collective group called the Covenant [1]. The war began in the year 2525 when the first covenant forces attack outer colony, Harvest. But it was a Pyrrhic victory for the Covenant which they didn't know that Humanity had to resort to guerrilla warfare.

Many UNSC forces died to retaken Harvest and won very costly victories, but despite their bravery, the Covenant held the space superiority, numerical, and technology advantages against humanity. Cole Protocol made by Admiral Cole before his death to destroy all UNSC files of regards that spell doom on humanity including Earth. Humanity's last hope are the Spartan-IIs, a group of super soldiers were once designed against rebellions, began to fight back against the Covenant.

Many covenant warriors found Spartan-II [2] soldiers deadly. The Spartans were too few to turn the tide of the war as more colonies being destroyed by Covenant forces and reaching to the inner Colonial worlds. The Covenant are facing difficulty in terms of logistics despite they held the superior advantages. That wasn't until the last years of the war.

The year 2552 saw the largest battle of the war was Reach [3], the second-largest military industrial complex and the training of the Spartan program. One day, massive Covenant Armada had come and destroyed UNSC forces as they glass the planet. In the deep reaches of space, a lone ship named Pillar of Autumn [4], escaped from battlefields of Reach led by Captain Keyes of UNSC navy which caught unaware that the covenant was upon a massive circular ring Ring.

That wasn't until Convent forces attacking Pillar Autumn, Cortana and Keyes alert the crew of cyo-tubes to wake up Spartan-117 and Spartan-721 [5]. One of the figures named Master Chief [6] woke up while the other one is still sleeping. Thus begins our story of one 16 year old Spartan-II named Gold [7].

Gold is Japanese origin, messy black hair with a bang over his eye without his helmet, and the most unique feature is his eyes were in fact gold. He is not an average Spartan warrior by terms of height, but somehow unique. He stands next to Master Chief, the most famous of all Spartan-IIs ever lived and he was his idol.

However, he remains asleep in his cyo-tube. Master Chief woke up and steps out of the cyo-tube. The crew tests him if he's in good condition. "OK, the captain needs you two at the bridge now!" one of the crewmen shouted until a banging on the door.

"Oh, god. They are breaking the door! Security!" One of the crew witness Sangheili [8] breaks the down and kills him.

"We got to get out of here!" One of the Crew urges to Master Chief.

"I understand." Chief said, he went off to see Captain Keyes. The other crewman tries to wake Spartan-721 up while the firefight rages on.

"What happen? Are we home?" Gold wondered why being awoken for.

"We're attack by Covenant! What you have done in this time?"

"…eh" Gold dumbfounded that unaware of the current situation. An explosion made him wide awake. Gold has been acting strange after he was picked up in Reach. After all, he was put in a cyro-tube and didn't tell him what's going on despite of the crew's dumbfound surpise.

"So anyways the captain need you and get there before you get killed." A crewman tries to explain that the Pillar of Autumn is under attack, but it's hopeless to get him though his thick skull.

"Let's go!" Master Chief tells the young Spartan as he peeks into the room.

"As you say, Chief." Gold said as he follows Master Chief closely to the bridge. They avoid Covenant forces in the ship. Master Chief gets to Captain Keyes before Gold who is literally got lost in the ship. He stops and thinks where to go.

"Where's the bridge, again?" Gold muses when he turned the wrong way as he sees marines battling aliens. The Elites shoots at the young Spartan which he runs for his life while the other marines saved him from his death.

"Oh, you got kidding me." Gold moaned.

30 minutes later, he got there in time. He evaded all Covenant units that nearly gotten killed him by needlers, plasma pistols, and plasma rifles. He enters the bridge tiresome as the crews are trying their best while the space battle rages on despite they are losing.

"Ok, now I'm here at last." Gold wheezes to see Captain Keyes who is manually controlling the ship. Earlier, Master Chief came and took Cortana [9] to get her out of the ship due how important to the UNSC or even to humanity. Now, they left the ship with a escape pod.

"Good to see you Gold. I got an assignment for you." Keyes is glad before the ship is going down which that they lost their main cannon earlier. He has a special plan for Gold. Gold didn't like the sound of that which raises his eyebrow even though you cannot see his face due of his helmet.

"IS that involving me killed?"

"Maybe, it's just simple mission. Just protect the A.I [10] unit that I will handle you over."

"What A.I unit?" Gold asked to wonder why.

"Crystal?" Keyes ordered which Crystal [11] appears and Gold is shock to see a beautiful female A.I unit appeared before his eyes. She has two pig tails with bended end. Her eyes were crystal blue. As a A.I unit, her color is Crystal color. Strangely enough that A.I. has a physical appearance of a 16-17 year old girl. But she wears a lab coat with a skirt, pink shirt, and bike shorts underneath the skirt.

"Huh? What's this? It's oddly different about this place? Where I am? And who is this guy? Crystal boot up only to see upon Spartan-II looking at her. Gold looks at her which something seems look familiar.

"So, I'm going to protect…her?"

"You are. Also she's different from any A.I units. Anyways, your mission is simple. Just keep her away from the Convent they will know everything including Earth."

"I got it."

"I know if you."

"Yeah, I got this."

"Good.", as Keyes pulls A.I chip and give it to Gold.

"Good Luck and please don't mess this up for love of humanity."

"Trust me. I just to put this in my helmet and." As Gold inserts into his helmet with a slight pinch which it didn't matter to him. Crystal enters the mind of Gold's helmet with she has command of the software data.

"Strange, your mind is a lot different from mind" Crystal wondered to see a mind of a Spartan soldier. In fact she sees software that she fixed and upgrade to the current version.

"Just don't play around my mind. So, let's go! But where to?" Gold told the A.I. which kind of weird for him to have a gal inside his head. He hopes that she can help him to fight in battles.

"What's your name?" the A.I. asked to the Spartan as Gold avoids the firefight.

"Um, the name's Gold. I'm glad to meet you." Gold replied as he grabs an assault rifle to fight the Covenant forces head on.

"Well, Gold. My name is Crystal or you could call me Crys. Wait, I did heard about you over the records of the Spartan-II program." Crystal greets herself, but Gold uninterested in the moment.

"Where's the escape pods? I need to get out of here." Gold worried that the ship will explode at any moment.

"Are you listening at all? Are you bit worried that safety of me? For Humanity at all? If you going to survive at all, at least listen to me for advice at all" Crystal sighs. That kind of ticks off Gold to hear from a A.I. unit that giving him a lecture what to do. Ever since his training, he hates lectures.

"Don't tell me you're like those super serious Gals who are serious and proper!" Gold mentally yelled at her. He fires his assault rifle against a group of grunts who gotten killed in a matter of seconds. Gold continues on as he goes deeper into the ship.

"What's worse being serious?" Crystal asked to Gold which goes out as he finds the battle wages on. He ducks and dodges the plasma fire from the Elites whom are very difficult for Gold to beat. But he was able to beat them.

"Hey, keep your head down. There are two of us in here. At least don't get shot in the head." Crystal shouted which Gold countered more grunts and their Elite officers.

"What you want me to do then?" Gold asked Crystal since she's the "Expert". He continues to fire back as he threw a grenade to a group of grunt as they had gotten killed by the blast.

"Yeah, that's what I thought. My plans always work." Gold prideful said as Crystal pouted to say.

"Liar." Crystal sighed. Gold continues to fight the Covenant forces which he has gotten lost in the ship again. Gold heads to a dead-end.

"Damn it!" Gold cursed.

"I told you." Crystal tells Gold which made him mad.

"So, where are the pods?"

"It's where all the marines are going to."

"Thank you, Captain obvious." Gold sarcastically as he went with the Marines in the pods. They go around the ship to find, but found one pod with no crew thus beginning of a long mission into the Halo. Which Gold going to get nagged by super serious A.I. and Crystal going with one reckless Spartan-II Warrior.

They were heading to a strange world where our two beings in one body are about to enter an adventure

Republic Empire: Don't worry; there will editing in the process. Don't complain about it. Just review to say where to explain the story or fix the grammar that you spotted. It's alright with me.

Update:

The story is the Alpha Edition where I have decided to fix the story around. The concept of the story is been changed where I can do. I found that many people didn't understand it due of the lack of Pokemon special knowledge. I will bring up the notes:

Covenant: Halo series' group of Alien races who bent on wiping out the human race. Armed with high-tech weaponry, they are can be deadly. They are according to their species that formed the Caste system. Go to Halo Wiki to understand the Covenant.

Spartan-II program was a Super Soldiers where Master Chief is among the last kind of the Spartan-IIs.

Reach is a major point in the story where it is a UNSC fortress world and critical to the UNSC where Fall of Reach was major deciding factor of the war.

Pillar of Autumn is a Halcyon-Class Light crusier of the UNSC navy.

The Spartan numbers which Master Chief is refer to the Bible while Spartan-721 is referred for those who don't get it is referred Gold's Birthday.

Main character of the Halo Series.

Gold is a Pokemon Special character and the main focus of the story.

Sangheili or called Elites, they are higher Caste class where they are proud warriors in the Covenant where poses a greater threat to Humanity.

Cortana is UNSC AI

In the Halo universe, AI in this story has two systems. One is dumb that covers the tedious tasks while Smart AI like Cortana are much faster and powerful than the dumb AI.

Crystal is a Pokemon Special Character.
