Excavation is the one hundred thirteenth issue of the series.
Master Chief explains how the artifact being unearthed by the Covenant, called the Ark, is used to activate the superweapon ringworlds known as Halos, which will wipe out all life in the galaxy, including the Covenant themselves, although they don't realize this. The Arbiter shows Oveur the partly excavated Ark. Samus says that a distraction is needed to approach the Ark. Master Chief snipes a Brute off of a Banshee, causing the craft to crash near the Ark, diverting the attention of the Covenant forces. the Writer is asked by the Future Writer to make an alliance, lying and saying that the Ark should actually be activated, not deactivated, to save the Earth.
