Chief, can you hear me?
When l was born seven years ago,
l already possessed the entire sum
lt took me almost two hoursto process
and understand all that information.
But l can't be surewhich memories are
mine or even what'strue, what's real. . .
l've discovered a great deal more information since then.
For an A.l., l've lived a very long time. . .
But now, after seven human years,
l have finally come to understand your role,
your place in the universe
and how you came to be here.
The eons of human evolution,
invention, aspiration, and war.
The oldest, most enduring of human practices.
A great civilization existed in this universe.
Like all great civilizations, they faced
a sudden and dire turn of events.
Athreat to their primacy from outside.
Something they never expected, never prepared for.
A deeply alien threat they called simply, 'The Flood''.
An unstoppable force, an unquenchable thirst.
lt devoured everything it touched.
At first, their technology, their courage
seemed like it might prevail.
But they waited too long to see
the threat, to join the fight.
The Flood had spread too far and too wide.
lt fed on intelligent life and in doing so,
became ever more intelligent itself.
The Flood was unique.
lt used their very strength against them.
They were, the Forerunners.
The Forerunnerswere a wise,
highly intelligent, noble people,
and with a belief in justice, in peace,
they bravely faced the adversary.
l can only guess some of this.
Fill in the gaps.
But it was an impossible fight.
Realizing defeat was inevitable,
the Forerunners made a decision to destroy everything.
lronically, they did this in order to preserve life,
to create a future for you, yet unborn,
knowing they themselveswould not survive.
ln a desperate attempt to ensure that
they would be the last victims,
they built a secret weapon of terrifying power.
lt wascalled ''Halo.''
An array of weapons scattered throughout the Galaxy.
lts effect would spread throughout
known space, destroying the Flood
and every thinking creature in the Galaxy.
You see, the Flood fed on sentient speciesto survive.
The devicewould destroy the infection and itsfood supply.
Athousand other planswere tried and failed.
Thiswasthe last resort...
And finally, it was over in an instant.
Every intelligent life form left in
the galaxy was obliterated.
But from the ashes of apparent defeat, a victory.
The Forerunners had catalogued, stored and protected
population samplesfrom the Halo effect.
ONA, embryos, even living specimens.
ln order to repopulate, restore the Galaxy.
Once the Galaxy wascleansed of Flood,
the threat sterilized, they repopulated worlds.
Rebuilt that which they had torn down and reseeded life.
But the Forerunnersthemselveswere gone forever.
This destruction, thisconflagration,
wastheir gift to you and their sacrifice.
They left you to reclaim your world,
to rebuild it with your own hands.
By sacrificing themselves.
lt seemed that life had finally found its peace.
Peace settled on the Galaxy.
But it would be a fleeting peace.
For the great sacrificewas in vain.
The end of onewar did not signal an end to all wars.
lt is a great irony, that the nature of war always
revealsthe true nature of thosewho fight.
And from their earliest days humanity began to fight.
War, after war.
lt swarmed over the Earth and therewas no ending in sight.
ln the midst of the desire to shed blood
