"Theyre right behind us!" a crewman warns as he rounds the corner, blue plasma explosions lighting the smoke-filled hallway behind him. A Covenant boarding party guns down the two security crewman trying to hold them back and give chase. A marine shouts "Close the blast door!" and retreats behind a portable barricade. With a low hydraulic hum and a steady warning beep the blast door starts to close, trapping an unfortunate straggling crewman on the wrong side.
