In Response To: Some questions about Halo 3's campaign (RyanTheHeretic)
: -Floodgate: why does the ship choose to crash into Voi? Why doesn't it try to
: go through the Portal?
First, simple plot reasons. Chief's gotta fight the Flood, and this avoids having him load up in a Pelican and head away from the Ark just to deal with the Flood and come right back. Second, the ship was beat to hell and could have honestly crash-landed next to the Ark just because it was trying its best to make the Ark. Thirdly, see everyone's theories on deeper reasons.
: -Floodgate: why does the ship have a clean cut hole leading to the storage
Clean? Semantics aside, plot reasons. Chief could find a way to blow a hole if he needed one, but that would ruin the drama of Chief marching in and picking her up directly. You can think deeper if you want, but it's not necessary.
: -Floodgate: Cortana uses a data storage device... how the heck did that get
Who says they didn't? Cortana had been talking to Gravemind since the end of Halo 2, maybe he intended for some information to leak out. Plus, individual Flood are dumb. I doubt many of them would even recognize what a storage device it, let alone what could be in one. It was more of a matter of Cortana hiding the device from Gravemind's direct knowledge, if it was snuck on at all.
: -Floodgate: how did the Elites know that there was a storage device on that
Did they? I thought they just cared about cleaning up the Flood. Haven't played it in a while. Plus, the Covenant are pretty advanced when it comes to scanning for AI constructs, you don't necessarily have to go any deeper than that. The Covenant probably still did thorough scans for AI constructs on all ships from their time fighting the Humans. Not to mention the possibilities generated by the terminal text, and so forth.
: -Floodgate/The Ark: how does Cortana know that "On the other side of the
She's been talking to Gravemind, and she's absorbed data from at least 2 separate Halo installations. It's more surprising that she didn't know more than she did- shows how good the Forerunners and Gravemind are at compartmentalizing infomation. And Gravemind knew virtually all the details about the Ark- see the terminal text. Cortana could have picked up how much he wanted to get to the Ark just from troop movements.
: -The Ark/Covenant: what is the Sentinel's priority task?
Building a new Alpha Halo. This is also why 343GS acts so surprised and intrigued all of a sudden- he patched into the computer, and the readout said "Oh hey, it's you- your new home will be ready soon. Please allow 4-6 weeks for shipping."
: -Halo: how do Flood dispersal pods drop from the sky?
The Flood have infected many, many worlds before. I'm sure they have their methods. There's no reason to believe they can't for example combine into gigantic pod-slinging forms off-camera. Aside from saying "plot reasons" again, I don't know this one directly.
: -Halo: how does Johnson's Warthog get to where it is? He would have had to
Because Sgt f'n Johnson drove it there. That's why. Oh, the ramps are backward? Back in his day, soldiers didn't NEED ramps to jump Warhogs over a gap. If they *really* needed ramp, they'd get a marine to kneil down and provide one. I have no idea, really.
