In Response To: Tour of Duty - Feel the Noise (Martin)

: Interesting is the bit about Thoth – a) that (knowledge of) Durandal’s still
: being alive might have made him less helpful; and b) that he’s trying to
: help the Pfhor now. That whole balance thing really is two-sided!
: Profound, I know, but someone had to say it. And Durandal never does get a
: chance to explain that further :(. Presumably Thoth’s aiding the Pfhor
: would be in the form of telling them to get the hell off the planet, like
: he apparently told us to clear that ship for Blake’s men … perhaps balance
: is just about killing both sides in order to save both sides. But if
: that’s how it is, are there even any ships left for the Pfhor to get away
: on? Equally, that idea of balance fits with the nobody wins kind of ending
: to the final level of the game.

Now that you guys have explained the meanings behind Thoth's cryptic, poetic dialect, I'm starting to formulate a theory that it was Thoth that told Admiral Tfear to use the Trih Xeem. With both sides in position to slaughter each other, perhaps Thoth thought it best to warn the Pfhor that their only chance of survival would be to blow up the whole system and get out of there.

: This clearly speaks to our being almost done here. A somewhat convenient
: story to bring the Juggernauts back into the mix, but I guess we’ll buy
: it.

What, exactly, are the Juggernauts? For years I assumed they were aircraft with a pfhor pilot, but the death sprite of the M1 juggernaut has yellow pfhor blood oozing from the head. A mutant cyborg? There's also something greenish spilling from it's other extremities.

The M2 Juggers lack such liquids, so it looks like Bungie went the same way with the simulacrums and retconned them into pure machine.
