Just outta curiosity...

Why would you use up valuable resources and time making someone into a spartan, the pinacle of physical soldiering, just to have them sit on the ship spouting orders(palmer) or organising logistics(think his name is dalton)???

Its a proper waste, any bog standard human could do those jobs.

PS, palmers a -Yoink!-

Yeah I get a bit confused why Crimson’s handler is a spartan too…I suppose since spartans are so cheap and “mass produced” they can afford it? But still…

Think about her rank; Commander.

As much as I dislike her, Palmer must of worked hard to achieve the rank of Commander and thus co-ordinates the Spartan teams from the Infinity.
