|An artifact brought on-board Infinity endangers the crew.|
Artifact is the second episode in the first season of Spartan Ops.
The camera starts looking up at a Promethean Crawler, screaming at Fireteam Majestic. The camera turns around to see Majestic holding out behind cover, shooting at several Crawlers moving up towards them. DeMarco stands up and fires a shot from his battle rifle, taking out a crawler.
- Madsen: Wasn't this sector supposed to have been cleared already?
Madsen takes a shot with his sniper, taking out another crawler, while Grant ducks back around cover, reloading her DMR.
- Grant: That was the idea, yea!
Madsen takes one more, concentrated shot, taking out the last crawler. He stands up, relaxing his gun.
- Madsen: These things just pop up where ever they want to, don't they! I mean how's that even fair, hu?
Suddenly a Promethean knight teleports infront of Madsen's range and takes a shot at him with a scattershot.
- Thorne: Madsen, look out!
Madsen is his in the sholder and falls down. Suddenly four more knights apear.
- Hoya: Raah!
Hoya jumps up and over the cover with a shotgun, and pumps it ready to fight. He takes out a knight and pumps the shotgun again.
- DeMarco: Hoya! Get back to cover!
Hoya takes another shot, but doesn't notice a knight leaping onto him. The camera shows us the knight scream at Hoya from his helmets point of view. Fade to dark.
Majestics pelican flys into Infinitys hanger and lands, Palmer is already waiting. She walks around to the entrance of the Pelican, and is suprised to see Majestic team in such a state.
- Palmer: Majestic?
The team exits the pelican, Madsen first, holding his sholder, followed by Grant, then Hoya on a stretcher bed.
- Palmer: Hoya.
Hoya looks up to Palmer.
- Hoya: It' s gonna' take a lot more than this to kill me, commander.
The bed continues moving, and thorne walks past the commander followed by DeMarco, who stops, looking grumpily at Palmer.
- Palmer: Hey.
- DeMarco: Commander.
- Palmer: What happened to Hoya?
DeMarco starts talking angrily, and annoyed.
- DeMarco: HOYA happened to Hoya! If he'd followed orders, he...
- Palmer: Armor bay's waiting, team leader.
DeMarco continues walking, while Thorne, still in the hanger, watches some scientists move a strange artifact through the bay.
- Thorne: Commander Palmer, whats that?
- Palmer: Crimson team made the first grab! Whatever it is, it's got the eggheads all tingling.
Suddenly, the artifact stops floating, and drops to the ground.TO BE FINISHED
