WHAT IS THE SPAR­TAN-II PRO­GRAMME?

XBox: The Official Magazine - - FEATURE -

The orig­i­nal UNSC su­per-solider pro­gramme sought out chil­dren with ex­tra­or­di­nary phys­i­cal or men­tal gifts (John-117 had both, nat­u­rally). Then the UNSC ab­ducted those chil­dren, re­placed them with clones so that no one would know, and put them through vig­or­ous train­ing un­til they could barely re­mem­ber their for­mer lives. Ouch. And we thought not get­ting Halo 2 for Christ­mas all those years ago meant we had the bad child­hood.

Ben­jamin Giraud is a jour­nal­ist who’s in­ter­viewed sev­eral peo­ple who knew Master Chief. His hunt for the truth has re­vealed some of the more hor­ri­fy­ing as­pects of the SPAR­TAN-II pro­gram, in­clud­ing said cloning and ab­duc­tion of chil­dren. Those who want to know more would be best to start with his work. Fur­ther Lis­ten­ing: Giraud’s nosey in­ves­ti­ga­tions are all chron­i­cled on the Hunt the Truth pod­cast.
