* The academy treats Lasky's fighting and disobeying orders (albeit in a simulation) with uncharacteristic kid's gloves. This becomes understandable when you remember the BeautifulElite nature of the UNSC which is riddled with corruption and nepotism. The academy is for the children of the elite rather than a strict meritocracy and he's the son of a prominent Colonel. It also becomes HarsherInHindsight when you realize they're probably cutting him slack because [[spoiler: his brother was just KIA.]]

**** Considering the opening suggests that Lasky is the one remembering the events, it could be that he is simply misremembering the events slightly, such as John's rank and Kelly and Fred's armor resembling later MJOLNIR models.

*** Or this could be a film made in-universe years and years after the conflict, based on memoirs of the survivors of the squad. It would explain the inconsistencies- memories can dull and fade, and certain liberties could be taken in order to make sure the "Audience," in the UNSC would know who was who.

*** It's not stated that he's a Master Chief Petty Officer. HE just says that he wants the cadets to call him that. He may just be trying to sound badass (inasmuch as a generally unsociable super soldier would want to), or in a sense making a self-fulfilling prophecy regarding his ultimate promotion.

** Not necessarily. The Covenant bypassing orbital defenses to attack ground targets is a fairly standard tactic for them. Either that or some part of their forces engage the UNSC while others proceed straight to the planet. Given that the Spartans and the surviving cadets are able to evacuate by Pelican at the end, it's likely that the Covenant fleet has still not been able to completely destroy the UNSC space presence, or was eventually defeated by UNSC reinforcements, or just left after having eradicated the human population of the planet.

** John being a MASTER Chief Petty Officer is a continuity error - He was only Chief Petty Officer at the time of this series according to expanded universe material.

* How is John a Master Chief Petty Officer - the highest enlisted rank in the Navy - already? The Spartans are all still teenagers, so they'd be junior enlisted, or according to the books, Petty Officers.

* That Elite that was hunting the remaining cadets? Ever wonder what was being said? More then likely it went something like this...
-->Elite Minor: Leader, come in, over. (no response, Zealot decloaks)
-->Elite Minor: Leader, come in, over.
-->Elite Zealot: What is it?
-->Elite Minor: I just saw a human go in after you, he's huge!
-->Elite Zealot: That's impossible, we killed them all.
-->Vickers: HEY! (Elite turns around) GUYS RUN! (gets slashed)
-->Sullivan: VICKERS!
-->Elite Zealot: There you are! (faces the cadets) You will have the honor of dying by my blade! (EvilLaugh)
