In Response To: Maybe this is how we find the Covenant homeworld.. (Simpsons Rule)
: In FoR on page 232, it says that in addition to letting Dr. Halsley go
: through with project MJOLNIR, ONI stepped up funding for intel and
: reconassiance missions. Small stealth ships were going to be deployed and
: search remote systems where the Covenant were based. One of these ships
: could've found the Covenant homeworld...
Good idea. Of course, the ONI (speculatively) already knows something or other about Halo- they defended Sigma Octanus like it was the nextstep to Earth. As soon as they heard of those rocks, they got real excited. My guess is that with your litle speculation, we can fill n the tiny gap of knowledge about how the Chied does take the fight to thae Covenant.
