Not much was known about the plot, but what has been revealed is that two troopers have been assigned to two asteroids floating in the centre of a ring of rocks. One trooper is a veteran of the asteroids, and has been there presumably for a while. The other is a new trooper who had just arrived at the station, and had just woken up. The veteran shows the new trooper around and explans there happens to be an interference between the two rocks. They believe it's Forerunner tech, and have been digging away at it for a little while. He also teaches the newcomer to use the equipment.
