ONI Candidate Assessment Program

<---- Back

File 1:

B: Corporal.
D: Need a baseline image? How about a bird?
B: That'll work.
B: Name and Rank?
D: Corporal Taylor H. Miles, everyone call me Dutch.
D: z(Buck), you really need to get in my head for this?
B: Office of Naval Intelligence wants to be thorough.
D: ONI's running this?
B: Yes, ONI's running this.

File 2:

B: What led you to the ODST?
D: Honor.
B: What experience do you have with close-quarters combat?
D: Experience with close-quarters combat is extensive.
D: You've got detailed accounts on engagements for Ariel, Jericho space elevator, and Coral Asteroid belt in my file.
B: As an ODST?
D: Yeah, I've successfully engaged - you know, this should all be in my general file, Buck.
B: I need to ask. You just need to answer. So?
D: As an ODST, I've successfully engaged the enemy under various conditions, before and after orbital drop.

File 3:

B: We're looking at a textbook shipboard mission. An orbital drop to some Covenant cruiser over New Mombasa. Nothing you haven't seen before.
D: Really? Like Tribute? Like Reach?

File 4:

B: Corporal, do you feel you'll be able to operate at maximum effectiveness on this standard orbital drop mission?
D: Yes. One hundred percent, sir.
B: Thank you.

File 5:

B: So how's Gretchen?
D: She's better.
B: What do they say?
D: If it was up to her, she'd be coming on this drop - but they say she's done. Maybe something behind a desk, but I don't know.
B: Well, I don't see her typing up reports.
D: No. Me neither.

File 6:

B: You were a trucker for a while, right?
D: I try not to think that far back.
B: Can you still handle a rig?
D: It's been a while, but I guess I could.
D: You trying to tell me I'm going to have to drive a truck into that Covenant bird?
B: You will get the details of the mission at briefing.

File 7:

B: Now the fifth man on this op is going to be a rookie. Transfer from the 26th MEF.
D: Cygnus? Didn't think there were any survivors.
B: Me either.
D: He might be a little shook up. Can't we get someone else? What about Bhasin?
B: Bhasin? You haven't heard.
B: An HEV drop over Sigma. Chute panels got compromised during entry burn - he couldn't slow down.
D: Yeah, hell - a rookie - Why not? Why not?

File 8 (Class 4 clearance required):

B: You'll be headed towards Earth.
D: Earth. Ok. Now I know why ONI's involved.
B: The last time you were there?
D: A long time ago. A weekend pass. It's the last thing I did before I applied for ODST.
B: Do you understand what's at stake?
D: This is about more than some Covenant ship, isn't it?

File 9:

B: You spent some time at university, right?
D: A little. I was two years in when I got drafted. Pulled shifts on rigs to pay tuition.
B: You studied a little philosophy, religion?
D: Actually, yes. Yeah. Sort of why I went.
B: How's that?
D: I don't know - I guess at the time I had a lot of questions.
B: You ever get into the end of the world stuff?
D: Yeah, sure.
B: And?
D: Everybody's got a different take on what it's about. It kinda depends on who you're asking.
B: I'm asking you.
D: It's inevitable. Nobody can save the world, Buck.
B: Good to see you, Dutch.
