Secrets of Zanzibar: The Story Edit

Created by OuterShadowProductions, it will be a pure action series. The release of this Machinima series has not been set but a script is in production.


Set in the year 2824, The UNSC, allied with the LEP (Liberation for Earth's People), has been fighting a war with Rebels known as United Front. The Rebels show no mercy when fighting and usually capture and experiment on enemy Spartans. After the destruction of the Rebel controlled city Versun, no sightings of the rebels have been reported.

The story begins with Spartan-021's imprisonment by the UNSC for destroying Versun City with the Rebel bomb which Alpha squad was ordered to deactivate. The explosion supposedly destroyed the Rebel base where Spartan-021's brother was captured 8 years ago. Now in prison, he hears multiple gunshots and explosions, then his childhood friend arrives, Spartan-062, or know as Deth. He calls out for Snake (Spartan-021). Deth explains that a type of creature had emerged from the remains of Versun and began attacking the human race. The Rebels are nowhere to be seen and the fight for survival has begun.

Locations Edit

Versun City Edit

Once a peaceful place, then the rebels attacked, they gained control over the government building and took the city. Many civilians escaped, some were captured. Alpha squad was sent in to deactivate the bomb, which they were going to use to threaten the UNSC so they could continue their work, but instead it was activated by Snake, blowing apart most of the city, supposedly taking out the entire Rebel force and their leader, along with their testing labs. Now the creatures known as the "Swarm" or "Swarmers" roam the remains, killing anything that comes into sight. Recently they have been travelling out of the city remains into Lannerway.

Versun’s mainframe was critically damaged during the explosion. A stable connection was later restored to Lannerway, the main network point. After General Xavo was informed of this, they scanned the link. Discovering an A.I, it turned out to be the cities A.I, Clean and Sweep. Reports state it went into repair, but still remains damaged. Xavo then ordered to block any external connections thinking the united front was trying to access their mainframe to steal vital information, such as battle plans.

There was a bridge connecting Valstone to Versun city, most called it Double V Highway, however it received damage from the rebel attack and soon collapsed. This resulted in the refugees trying to escape to Versun-Fahare highway, however the United Front blocked access.




Lannerway Edit

The main city of the UNSC & LEP. This is where all the operation decisions take place and the city itself covers nearly 56 miles of land. It includes the shelter for the soldiers in the UNSC and multiple buildings for government officials. It is currently under attack by creatures which emerged from the rubble of Versun, the city near to Lannerway. The civilians here are heavily protected and most have standard Mk-6 Armour, unlike other civilians in different cities with their Mk-5.





Rockhill Town Edit

A town near the River Syon, it was completely destroyed by the United Front on New Years eve 2799. The UNSC at this point decalred war on the United Front, the LEP then followed the UNSC's actions and did the same. Rockhill was based near the desert where a supposed research facility was located, this is what the United Front tried to take over, but after years of the UNSC defending the area, now known as the Omega Research Facility, the United Front decided to retreat and attack a new location. The UNSC now use the Research facility and have created upgrades for armour and weapons.




Valstone City Edit

A City located near Versun but was under threat from the Swarmers, but was defended by the UNSC. It is one of the few cities to remain free from rebels and swarmers. However, some Rebels did manage to get into the city through it's defenses but were quickly stopped when Xavo sent in more squads, Charlie 1 was present here at the time. A rumour is that the Rebel Leader was born here, and was the supposed reason behind the attack.

The United Nations Space Command (UNSC) is the military, exploratory, and scientific agency of the United Earth Government.
