Spartan Training Station Bombing




The Spartan Training Station Bombing was a terrorist attack on an orbital Spartan training facility by the United Rebel Front on March 29th, 2554.  The attack was carried out by a mole for the URF that had managed to get into the Spartan-IV program, Rudolf Schein, who also murdered Spartan-IV candidate Hideo Wakahisa.  The bombing was mostly thwarted due to the actions of Spartan-IV trainer Jun-A266, though Schein managed to detonate an explosive in the rec room, blowing out the viewport, and killing drill instructor Captain Marisa O'day.  Jun-A266 and Schein were both sent into space by the  decompression, though Jun was able to be rescued by Tom-B292 and Lucy-B091.  The attack and aftermath, which was witnessed by Spartan recruits Edward Buck, Kojo "Romeo" Agu, and Michael "Mickey" Crespo, played a major role in the events leading up to the Talitsa Incident.



These events are depicted in the short story Lessons Learned, from the anthology Halo: Fractures and the novel Halo: New Blood, which was the subject of a Halo Book Club on April 28th, 2015.
