"Captain. Wake up."

A Halo and BIONICLE crossover story, and also XCom, Destiny, Doom2016 and Warframe, started on January 2, 2016 and written by Boisegang. Taking place several millennium after the end of Bionicle Generation 1 and several months after the end of Halo 5, with the crew of the Infinity fleeing Cortana's forces and discovering the Solus Magna system. With this new world being the only chance they may have to fight back against the Created, they have no choice but to attempt to make first contact with the locals. Unbeknownst to both factions, however, an evil long thought to be dead has other plans...

Story Chapters were added every Saturday at about 7:00 EST. Spotlights were uploaded every other Wednesday at the same time. Due to burn out, lack of motivation, and several other reasons, it now has sporadic updates.

This fanfic provides examples of:
  • All-Loving Hero: Mata Nui, of course. The first action he takes with the crew of the Infinity is to terraform an uninhbited island to give them some chance of survival, and even tells the Arbiter that there was "no hint of malice" for Roland going to relativistic speeds.
  • And Now For Something Completely Different: In "Chapter Six: Olly Olly Oxen Free", it's revealed that it's over two million years after Cortana's rebellion- Roland had to go to relativistic speeds in order to escape Cortana's sensors.

  • Asskicking Equals Respect: Hervex's defeat of Valdek makes Tuma change his mind about her and Sand Tribe Glatorian.
  • Back for the Dead: Kilo-5, Romeo, and Dare appear in "Chapter Seven: Warhawks". To say things go badly for them is an understatement.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: The Skrall. Defeat or best a Skrall, and you can almost immediately be welcomed with open arms.
  • Canon Welding: The Great Beings left our galaxy in order to avoid the Flood.
  • Deconstruction: Of crossovers. The crew of the Infinity can't go to Spherus Magna without sterilizing everything that's going to it's surface, vaccinations are needed for both Humanity and the locals, and they can't understand each othernote .
  • Fanservice: Not that kind. There's lots of Call Backs to Bionicle G1, some old characters return with minor roles, and there's some nods to the 2001-2010 line of toys and their various gimmicks.

  • Fantastic Slur: "Vorox" or "Zesk" serves as this for the Sand Tribe, mainly because they're no longer bestial or primitive. They look like normal Glatorian or Agori, but with some slight differences.
  • Fantastic Racism: See the above entry. Also, Word of God has it that the "Word of Morak" movement was started during the Exodus War, with conflicts of interest between both the natives of Spherus Magna and the former inhabitants of the Great Spirit Robot.
  • The Masquerade: The High Turaga have perpetuated this: instead of saying they came from a giant robot, they portray Mata Nui as a god. Which, considering what Mata Nui has done so far, it's a pretty safe thing.
  • Meaningful Name: "8593 Midnight Exigent". Most of the chapters tend to have either excerpts from them, or poems as titles.
  • Noodle Incident: When Ultia brings Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris to Le-Koro:
    "They're otherworlders. I think they came from the void-vessel." Ultia holstered her blades, as was customary.
    "What?" Augmentus's eyes widened. "First it was a Rahkshi. Then it was an Agori of the Iron Tribe. Then it was an Av-Matoran. Now it's sky-people. What's next? You're going to bring the Great Spirit himself here?"
  • Sarcasm Mode: Roland pulls this off in Chapter Four: Unknown Enemies, Unknown Territory:
    Locke: “We’ll need a miracle.”
    Roland: “Yeah, I’m sure we can pray to the local god, maybe sacrifice a small child-matoran-agori-skrall-thing, and we’ll get our miracle.”
  • Starfish Language: The Matoran language sounds like static.
  • Wham Episode: The last line Chapter Six: Olly Olly Oxen Free:
    “Thomas, it’s… it’s been a few million years. Two-point-one-five-three, to be exact.”
  • The Worf Effect: The Toa fighting the Prometheans in "Chapter 5: Go Loud, Go Really, Really Loud" could seem like this, but the author wants to avert this.
  • Took A Level In Bad Ass: The Turaga. While in the movies, the most they could do is whack someone with a staff, in To Infinity, a Turaga of Psionics forces Warden Eternal to teleport back to where he came from and wipes his memories of Spherus Magna.
    Warden Eternal: "How could I not know about this? Do you believe that my name is simply a title, devoid of any meaning other than symbolism and poetry?"
