[[spoiler:While the affair did happen and Milt views it as a betrayal of an agent he respected, in a {{subversion}} his former boss states that the decision was made higher up the chain of command and the affair had nothing to do with it.]]

* In the ''{{Halo}}'' novelization, the ''Fall of Reach'', Ensign William Lovell's record states that he had an affair with a Ms. Gerov, whom Captain Jacob Keyes, viewing Lovell's career service vitae, suspects to be the daughter of Rear Admiral Gerov. Interesting in the fact that, while Lovell turns out to be a very competent navigational officer, it is suggested that he may have made advances on her ''on purpose'', because Lovell has gotten so shaken up from the war that he deliberately had himself demoted to be rotated anywhere ''but'' the frontlines.
