Number of episodes:
Logan and Gus is set in a alternate version of the Halo Universe, likely around the 2080s or 90s. Abandoned by the military on a strange island, Logan and his best friend Gus have lived and guarded the base, unaware of the fact that the military left them to rot. Not too far across the ocean, Fortitude City, set in Reach (After restoration in the 2080's) stands. They use the market in the city to buy arms and supplies and other requirments to survive. One day, when Logan recieves a message from an unknown french man named Boe, they get prepared to find him.
Episode 1: "The Message"Edit
Logan approaches the island base after returning from Fortitude City. He stops at the base, as the gate appears to be closed. Gus, however, initially does not open it, cautiously confirming that Logan is himself, and Logan scolds him due to his lack of common sense. Logan drives through, and throws a tantrum at another gate, as he scratches the warthog, showing that he has an intrest in vehicles. He proceeds to park. Shortly after, Gus approaches him while he is reading a message on their computer. As it is in french, Logan initialy had to figure it out, while Gus poorly translated it. After figuring out it was from a man named Boe, Logan seems to remember the name, repeating it over and over.
Episode 2: "Gained the Lead"Edit
Logan again enters the base from the outside, only to find Gus fiddling with the SAM site. Gus confirms that the Boe Logan though was the messanger, was actuley not; Gus called him Irish due to him speaking spanish, another sign of Gus' stupidity. Logan sighs, and decides to go fix up the "jeep", stating they may need it soon. Gus, a little while later, approaches Logan saying he found the correct Boe. Logan assumes he is over reacting, and sighs and doesn't take it too seriously. Then Gus reminds Logan of Lieutenant Jackson, a fellow trooper that was KIA when another person named Boe killed him. They investigate the body, rotted after years of sitting in a corner, and uncover a note. Logan then begins to walk away, and when Gus questions, Logan tells him to get some close quarters weapons, as they are going after Boe. In the armoury, Logan explains that his weapon choices are CQC, compared to Gus' Spartan Laser and Flamethrower. After a short dispute, Logan torches Gus. Gus, however, is unharmed and Logan just did it to prove a point.
Episode 3: "Road Trip"Edit
Logan and Gus drive down the beach of Fortitude City, appearing to have just emerged from the ocean. They pull in to an "Armour and Arms" weapon store, and Gus goes inside. Logan, waiting in the warthog, notices someone, and sees a man in the distance staring. Gus, in the meantime, buys a rocket launcher and returns to the jeep. Logan scolds him, calling Gus' weapon choice "very overkill". They then depart for Azod, Reach, stating that it is not a short trip. The man looks over them again, while Logan and Gus drive away unoticing.
Series switches to Halo: Reach.
Driving through a UNSC spacecraft graveyard site, they park inside a facility and begin to scout the area for any guards. Logan cuts through the interior of the main area, while Gus goes around the outside. They rendezvous in the building, and Gus wants to scout ahead. Logan follows him to a doorway. Gus begins to enter, but Logan jokes about the rocket launcher being to powerful at close range, but Gus says "It'll work." He enters, and quickly says to Logan that there is a guard. Logan proceeds to assassinate him/her.
Episode 4: "Blast Off"Edit
Logan and Gus stand infront of Boe. They appear to be in the room after the guard, and that "room" happens to be a lanch facility for spacecraft. Boe greets them in a polite, evil kind of way, but Logan and Gus don't take it friendly. They warn him that they are armed, but Boe pleads that they not wage violence, as he only wanted to talk to Logan. Gus is sent to wander the facility, and Logan follows Boe. They have a fairly lengthy chat, and Boe reveals he only sent the Letter in french as a cover for a classified reason. He also admits to the murder of Lt. Jackson, stating that he wasn't as good as Logan or Gus. He and Logan walk into a corrider facing the spacecraft, as he explains the Logan a task he wants him to perform. Logan says Boe is crazy, and that he wouldn't steal from a military space station. Boe threatens Logan with firearms, forcing Logan to get in the spacecraft and fly away.
Episode 5: "Grand Theft Military"Edit
Boe is in a communication room inside his facility, and he is trying to contact Logan, who is up in the space station. They finaly connect, and Boe begins giving instructions to Logan. Logan finds a guard, and after almost giving away that he was an intruder, shoots the guard, killing it. Boe tells Logan not to worry, as Gus enters the room with Boe and demands to know where Logan is. Boe explains where Logan is to Gus, and his task. Meanwhile, Logan, taking a shorter route to the artifact Boe wants him to steal, and completes a jump to a platform area. He gets distracted at an amazing view of the orbit of Reach, and Boe snaps at him to get moving. He continues into another room, intended to be a room leading to the artifact, but the stairwell is blocked. Logan then moves over to another stairwell bringing him to the entrance to the artifact. He meets a guard, and disguises his voice, claiming to be "the new guy". After a failed attempt getting in, he exits the station onto a platform. He tries again, this time he threatens the guard in normal voice. After a moment, Logan finally shoots the guard. He continues to the artifact, appearing as a moniter with an A.I. possessing it. The A.I. obviously was not finished, due to a hardly understandable sentence. Logan and Gus help Boe capture the A.I., and Logan takes the artifact. He is ready to leave, but another guard confronts him asking if he'd seen the artifact. Logan gets in a small fight, eventuley shooting the guard, but starts to leave, as guards are about to appear. On the ground, Gus is furious at Boe. Boe encorages Gus to shoot him, but Gus does not respond, as Boe stated that if he shot him, Gus would die first, being at the facility.

Jackson, he started to partially watch over them. He established a small base in a UNSC shipping yard in Aszod, and created a small guard to defend it. He took over a spacecraft launch site, and turned that into the main database and structure. He then started performing ilegal actions, such as killing Lt. Jackson and stealing millions worth of cR. He waited for a little while before finding out a device that would process his rampancy, and called upon Logan and Gus. He confronted Logan, and sent him to obtain the object. He usually carries an assault rifle and a magnum pistol. He never ranked in the UNSC, being an AI unit.
