In the heat of the Created Conflict, an ONI Agent is tasked with the risky mission relaying crucial information to the Master Chief through closely monitored space. There is a complication however: Every seven hours, her memory resets. With the help of a shipboard AI named Oliver, she must complete her mission while learning more about both herself and the Chief through the UNSC archives.
