"INCOMING CONTACT, UNKNOWN CLASSIFICATION!"
Remember Reach is a Microsoft marketing campaign for Halo: Reach. The campaign is centered around the website, www.rememberreach.com, where users can create a "light monument" of Noble Team composed of thousands of points of light and generated by a real robotic arm. The monument is constructed by special camera equipment which captures and composites the movements and light pulses from the robotic arm, which visitors can see in action on the website. Each user may guide the robotic arm to their chosen coordinates, adding their contribution to the light sculpture which is set to be completed on September 14, 2010.
In addition, the campaign will feature several live-action shorts by the director Noam Murro, who also directed the Birth of a Spartan teaser. The videos will show glimpses of what life on Reach was like before the Covenant invasion. The first video in the campaign, Patrol, was first shown on August 17, 2010 during GamesCom 2010. The promotional site was also launched in the same day, and is set to open fully on August 23, 2010.
Commander Carter S529
Birthplace: Duraban, Biko
If not for his leadership on reach, all would have been lost.
An everlasting testament to fortitude, defiant in the face of adversity.
Born of unbreakable will, it was he who led Noble in its finest hour.
Courageously guiding them to victory, no matter how high the cost.
In recognition of this, his steadiest resolution, we honour him as commander of Noble.
