|Some interesting questions and notes from the book|
|Posted By: Skeletor <firstname.lastname@example.org>||Date: 11/7/01 12:59 a.m.|
I read Halo Fall of Reach last night. I'm always looking for similarities and/or oddities between Halo and Marathon, so I took a few notes I'd like to share with you.
Warning: there are some spoilers ahead (for the book, not the game).
Quote from page 23, while they are observing the first possible Spartan at play:
This reminds me of a portion of the Marathon manual:
Quote from page 238:
Marathon-class cruiser?? Is this just a memorial slapped into the story as a sort of joke for the Marathon fans? Or does it actually have anything to do with Marathon?
Quote from page 273:
and from page 290:
Although It never mentions the other AI being initialized, (up until Cortana is ported to John-117's Mjolnir armor she had been in control of the PoA) In the fourth Cortana letter the source of a message is "BW-AI aboard (?) PoA".
Quote from page 235:
Hmmm......Sounds like the description of rampant AI to me. Anyways, Cortana's description of the "BW-AI" would then make sense if "BW" was a "dumb" AI.
I'd also like to note that there seems to be a difference between the word "Mjolnir" in Marathon and Halo.
I'd also like to rant about some other things which has been eating away at my mind recently. I hoped the book would explain some of these things, unfortunately it has not:
WHY in god's name does Captain Keyes wear a Marathon logo on his right-breast?!?!??
Halo seems to be using names, logos, technology, etc. from Marathon, but they're being implemented in different scenarios. Finding the key to link them together is turning out to be a very puzzling challenge indeed (I'm starting to doubt there is a connection, although I still have hope).
Okay I'm done.
