- "Faces are for wannabes. I’m not a surrogate human."
- — BB
Black Box, or BB for short, was a "Smart" AI construct built by ONI to accompany the ex-Spartan, Captain Serin Osman on her mission to sow discord throughout the remaining Sangheili population after the Great Schism.
As with other smart AI's, BB was capable and also tasked with running the operations of the UNSC Port Stanley. He was capable of controlling the entire ship without the need for a human interaction.
BB had the opinion that it is not a good idea to get too invested in humans, fearing that he may "end up like Cortana" and as such in his early days held a very formal, sometimes verging on cynical relationship with the crew members of the Port Stanley.
- Other than Cortana, Black Box was the only other A.I known to have interfaced with a Spartan through the Neural pathways found in their armour. He teamed up with Naomi-010 to assist on the raid of the Piety.
- On more than one occasion, Black Box showed that he was willing to be as ruthless as necessary to fulfill the mission. At one point after rescuing "Mr. Muir", the last survivor of a glassed world, Black Box prepared to jetison Muir into space purely on the basis of "He's asking too many questions". He referred to the procedure as "Airlock Diplomacy" and was only dissuaded when Osman intervenes.
- Black Box was planning on persuading Dr. Phillips to donate his brain to the A.I. program before passing away.
- He made a comment that seems to suggest that the MA5B is of less quality then the MA5C.
- It is quite ironic that this A.I's name is Black Box yet his avatar is blue.
