In Response To: Re: Durandal & Rubicon (Forrest of B.org)

: Rubicon seems to pretty much ignore the existence of Infinity, except
: thematically with the dream levels. It follows directly after Marathon 2,
: with no concept of a W'rkncacnter release, the collapse of Lh'owon's sun,
: the merger of Thoth and Durandal, any of that. It's as if Infinity never
: happened.

: The majority opinion here, thanks to the explanation of Mark Levin during the
: original Volunteers series, is that the events of Marathon Infinity
: "fixed" all timelines and Marathon 2 continued on exactly as it
: would have had Infinity never mentioned any W'rkncacnter release, and all
: the effects that took place to fix that - basically, people here seem to
: believe that in the final "one true timeline", Infinity didn't
: happen. I have serious issues with that, both literary-artistically and
: temporal-mechanically, and think it's better to say that Rubicon has some
: serious issues with the foundation of it's story, than to say that one of
: the original Marathon trilogy effectively never happened.

I don't see anything wrong with it, what are your qualms?
