In Halo, Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODSTs) are an elite special-forces group of the UNSCDF (United Nations Space Command Defense Force) Marine Corps, commanded by Naval Special Warfare. They are dropped into their mission areas by an HEV (Human Entry Vehicle) from low-orbit or "slipspace" drop. It's an all-volunteer outfit, and as mentioned in the book Halo: The Flood, it takes a "special kind of crazy" to join. The ODST often find themselves at odds with the rest of the UNSC Marine Corps and some view themselves as above the Marines. They're analogous to various types of special-forces personnel, such as Marine Force Recon and Navy SEALs.
Halo is a popular series of science fiction first-person shooter video games developed by Bungie Studios and published by Microsoft. The games are set in the "Halo universe"-- a science fiction universe created by Bungie Studios exclusively for the series. Halo: Combat Evolved quickly became known as the first "killer application" for Microsoft's Xbox video-game console when it was released in 2001, achieving both critical acclaim and financial success. Combat Evolved was later published on the PC and finally released for the Mac (for which it was originally developed prior to Microsoft's buying developer Bungie).
