SUMMARY

Following the Requiem Campaign, the UNSC Infinity sets off on several missions to keep the peace in the galaxy.  In the process the ship is attacked several times by insurrectionists and Covenant remnants.  In addition to putting down rebellions and fending off insurrectionist plots, the UNSC and Jul 'Mdama struggle for control over the Janus Key, which was split in half at the end of the Requiem Campaign.

Eventually Jul 'Mdama is successful in stealing the second half of the Janus Key from the Infinity, and uses it to access the Forerunner Absolute Record.  'Mdama nearly gains access to the record, but the installation's monitor deems everyone unworthy of access and destroys the Janus Key.
