In Response To: Tour of Duty - All Roads Lead To Sol... (PerseusSpartacus)

It's an odd choice on Bungie's part that Durandal's terminal gives sequel-baiting, yet the ending text outright informs us the outcome of everything. Phoenix/TGI, Rubicon, Trojan, Red, and Evil all happened thousands of years before the final event in this text crawl.

For an alien species name, Nebulon is very un-marathonish. All other alien words look as if they were transcribed from tongues that human speech is incapable of replicating. Nebulon is just goofy and reeks of stock sci-fi cliches (I swear there's one buzz lightyear character called Crash Nebula. No wait, that was fairly oddparents). Did Jason Jones just decide to drop the realistic, lovecraftian pretense and get silly with them? What with the Nar and the big floaty things kicking their butts. Their design in the Tfear terminal looks cool, though. Makes me wish someone with artistic endurance would make a scenario with Nar, Nebulons, and Vylae.
