Forward Unto Dawn, Episode 1: Review Part 6 TO BED. (SPOILERS)

Spoilers abound in this review, not just for the show, but for Halo 4 as well. You’ve been warned.

In part six (and the final part) of my review of episode 1, I take a look at the end of a long day for Hastati Squad and Cadet Lasky.

A one-point perspective shot of the cleared out hallway of the barracks.

Shutting down for the night.

Lasky sitting at his table as his day is about to set.

A sparsely decorated (or would one say “Spartan”) barracks room, Lasky sits down for bed.

This is the only shot I touched up in Photoshop so it was more clearly visable. The text reads:

Through Knowledge, Victory
Thorugh Unity, Peace, Honor, Valor, Allegiance. Today
Tomorrow, Forever, Together
We Rise. Together We Prevail.
Forward Unto Dawn
From Earth, For Earth. Honor
Valor, Allegiance, Excellence
Today. Tomorrow. Forever.
Together We Rise. Together We
Prevail. Forward Unto Dawn.
From Earth, For Earth. Honor
Valor, Allegiance, Excellence

The italicized text is shown, but is a repeat of previous lines and it’s assumed it repeats more text in the engraving.

Lasky’s game of chess awaits it’s next move by his brother.

Something appears on the screen. What is this?

Wait, now the screen is clear? What is happening?

A small light dot appears in the sky.

It’s dropping in fast!

It’s broken through the clouds!!

It’s turned red. Is that my spider-sense tingling?

Is it changing direction?

OMG it is!

What or who could this be?

Stay tuned next week for episode 2!

About Sal

Well, I’ve been toying with the idea of a new blog for awhile now. My wife has wanted me to do this for several months. So I decided, why not? I’ve got tons of experience with Halo gaming and collecting. I think I have something to offer to the greater Halo fan community. So I’m starting this blog. Posts along the way will be about tips and tricks in the games as well as collecting. I’ll also repost interesting articles from official sites, such as, or fan sites such as A note about HaloCollectors. I’m a staff writer there, as well as global moderator and the official Mega Bloks reviewer for that site. As far as the games go, I’ve played Halo 3 since it came out until Reach was released. I loved Halo3: ODST and though it was underrated by many. I love Halo Reach and am already an Inheritor, having attained that rank in July, 2011. I know many of the tips and tricks on how to boost commendations in Campaign and Firefight. And yes in Matchmaking, but I prefer to go about those correctly and not cheat the system. As I develop this blog, I hope to help gamers who want advice on the games, as well as any collectors with regards to where to find collectibles as well as deals, coupons and so on. You can also follow me on Twitter at:!/HaloFanForLife or Facebook at: These are both new as well, so there isn’t much if anything at those page for the moment. However there will be and each of these three outlets will have similar information, though not the same, so be sure to follow them all. Welcome to my blog and I hope you’ll come back again and again. -Sal

  1. I watched the video 3 times before reading your reviews and I still was surprised about some of the intricacies I missed. Thanks for doing such an amazing job breaking down each component of the video and I look forward to your reviews of the next 4 episodes.

    • Here’s something else you may have missed, listen to Sullivan after they’ve come back from the training mission. He talks about coded transmissions and being close to cracking them. If he’s not a future ONI operative then I don’t know what is.
