|Pondering the connections to Marathon in Halo|
|Posted By: Harry <firstname.lastname@example.org>||Date: 10/18/01 8:25 a.m.|
Ever since the Marathon logo was discovered in the Halo logo way way back people have been coming up with theories and speculations about the connection to Marathon in Halo. What I myself now think is that we won't see very direct connections to the Marathon universe as we know it.
We have the Marathon logo, its meaning being described to "represent a world within a world... Marathon the spaceship being build inside a hollowed asteroid." (J. Reginald Dujour, taken from Marathon's Story). But in Halo the logo is taken away from the representation in a way, and made to be the logo of the human confederation (or the UESC).
Then we have the AI, Cortana. Cortana is an essential part for the humans, as shown in the recent movies. If the Covenant acquire her, they will find out about all the human military tactics and Earth. So here the AI is not only a part of the ship, controlling doors or the flight path. We had AI's in Marathon and they all had duties in and around the Marathon.
Lastly, I feel that somehow we won't see any Pfhor, or Jjaro (it would be cool if they built the Halo but oh well). We won't see anything relating to the S'pht or their 11 clans. All I think we'll see is how the humans are under the Marathon logo.
Sorry for my incoherance. I'm off to wake up a little more.
