I randomly had a dream where I was at a video game convention and I won a hoodie with a very cool image on it that resembled a poster.
It was a mix between Unreal Tournament with Master Chief on it, the iconic character from the Halo saga.
It features the first Halo ring discovered after the ship Pillar of Autumn escaped from planet Reach and the phrase “Spartans never die, they are just missing in action” (It is pretty famous in Halo’s books).
In Halo the alien union Covenant is on a sacred journey and well… humans are in the way.
The Spartan project (basically creating super soldiers), which was first created to fight back terrorists was then moved into fighting against the Covenant and keeping the army morale high.
Even if a Spartan died, it was never classified as K.I.A. (Killed in action), instead if was Missing in Action.
