Imagine it's 2526 and you're a young adult
civilian in the Halo Universe who's living in
comfort and security back on Earth.
The Covenant has just become common
knowledge and Outer Colonies are falling
like dominoes in the face of this threat.
Be honest; would you enlist in the UNSC and
go fight the alien invasion on worlds that you
would have never thought about before?
Or, would you be content in the belief that
the UNSC could handle it without you and
that the fight would never reach Earth?
Maybe you'd wait until the Covenant found
the Inner Colonies before you joined up?
