The creators of the series claim that they can please both fans of the game and drama lovers with their project.
The 26th century became apotheotic in a fierce war in which earthly forces lose the religious union of alien civilizations. Mankind is struggling to survive, but aliens are stronger than the United Nations Space Command. There is only one hope for salvation - this is the development of the SPARTAN-2 project. The project is aimed at creating people of increased strength who will be able to engage in a battle with alien invaders ...
Earthlings lose the battle, despite all the efforts of the Spartans. The planet is destroyed. Only one spaceship called the Column of Autumn survived, and on it the last representative of the Spartans - John-117. Perhaps the surviving ship will be able to turn the tide of history, because John finds a mysterious alien artifact - Halo, which is a world-ring.
