What’s the size of the UNSC Cradle?
GRIM: The standardized dimensions of a UNSC cradle are approximately 38 x 22 x 33 inches in order to accommodate nearly every new recruit. Standard-issue UNSC cradles feature a robust, utilitarian – but attractive – design, with arched head and beveled footboards, and are equipped with a bunk pad featuring a non-toxic protective coating. Recommended for use with new recruits up to 20 lbs or until the newbie can roll from side to side or do push-ups on their own.

How exactly did Hamish Beamish end up at Corbulo Academy?
FRANK: Upon finding that his Cryochamber had failed during an automated shuttle transit to Corbulo (there was no fear of Covenant interception in those days), Hamish had to stay warm by burning human hair, which he shaved off the other cadet candidates)and consuming their toenail clippings for protein. By the time he arrived at Corbulo, he was too old and emaciated to enroll as a “proper” cadet and instead found himself with the job of Janitor, and in fact one of only five human Janitors in the colonies, a job usually done by robots.
What is the current state of 'pop culture' in the UNSC (e.g Trends, Music, Video Games, Movies etc) and could you provide some examples?
FRANK: Everything is dubstep. Everything. Games, music, clothes, cars. Dubstep. And of course classical music, including great works by One Direction and the fat one out of 'N Sync.
Is there any particular reason for why Quadwings are so abundant on so many Forerunner installations?
FRANK: They are basically space pigeons, or flying rats. All they do is breed, poop and fly slowly around. Their only known skill is the ability to predict human marksmen and turn just exactly as you were about to shoot them.
Are there any previously unrevealed weapons in the Halo: The Master Chief Collection?
FRANK: Yes, the Halo 1 pistol is actually in Halo 2. There’s a huge crate of them in the Halo 2 Hang ‘Em High successor, Tombstone. It was an ubertroll. (This one is actually true. – Frankie)
