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

: 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.

The Nar originated from the warped mind of Rob McLees. I'm guessing the Nebulons do too. Not only did Rob steer Marathon 2 in a different artistic direction it appears he attempted to inject his own style of humour into the story.

Cheers
