- "Jensen and I have installed capture software into all of our helmets, allowing us to transmit what we saw on the battlefield to a local server."
- —Simmons in Training Daze
The Helmet Camera (also known as Helmet Cam for short) is a piece of capturing software equipment, created by Simmons and Jensen, that possess the ability to record footage on the battlefield from a soldier's visor and transfer said footage to a local server. If a nearby server is unavailable the helmet cam can be operated by an A.I.
Role in Plot[edit | edit source]
This equipment was first utilized in Training Daze, when Tucker, Simmons, Grif, and Caboose train their chosen New Republic recruits, intending to use the helmet cameras to record their training exercises to review their abilities. However, the captains and their recruits are laughed at by the rest of the rebels as Felix continuously humiliates them in the footage. Later on in Fed vs. New, it's used by Tucker and Epsilon to expose the Space Pirates' involvement in the Chorus Civil War to the Chorus armies by recording Felix's confession and transmitting the video to Armonia.
Similar technology is later used by the cameramen Jax Jonez and Frank for recording Dylan Andrews while she’s telling the news or is working one getting news stories. Much later, this technology was also used by the soldiers at Falcon Base.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Helmet cameras are currently used by more (known) characters than any other armor enhancement in the series (Tucker, Simmons, Grif, Caboose, Palomo, Jensen, Bitters, Smith, Frank, Jax, and the soldiers at Falcon Base). However, it's not the most used enhancement in terms of individuals, as many nameless Federal Army of Chorus soldiers and Space Pirates use Active Camouflage.
