In Response To: Marathon Infinity: the Story: Prologue (Philtron)

: The level ends with a terminal of white text similar to Thothís in M2, but I
: do not believe this is Thoth, since he very likely has not been activated
: in this timeline. The login icon is similar to Sípht-Durandalís, but I
: donít think is it either; Sípht-Durandal does not demonstrate the ability
: or knowledge of traveling to other timelines anywhere in this game. Mostly
: likely this is non-diegetic narration.

I think writing this off as non-diegetic is a bit asinine. We've had non-diegetic terminals in M1 and M2: the credits terminals where the bungie staff left some comments. These are obvious easter eggs. Then there's the text scrawls at the end of each game for narration. I think if they were going for non-diegetic narration (like the intermission screens between episodes of ID software's games), they would have put that on the chapter screen, not a terminal.

I believe there is some presence on the ship that comes in contact with you when you find the terminal, like a Jjarro AI.

: Another thing of note: Durandal suggests that if the main character can get
: onto Tychoís ship then the main character might be able to escape the
: chaos. In the very next level this turns out to be true, just not in the
: literal way Durandal intended. The main character does board Tycho's ship
: and does escape the chaos, but he does so by traveling to a reality where
: he is already in Tycho's custody and the W'rkncacnter hasn't been released
: yet. Some clever wordplay/levelplay by Double Aught, here.

Yeah, first time playing, my natural thought, seeing tycho's name on a terminal, is we got on his ship, sans time travel. Then you read what he says, then go to lh'owon on the next map with the star still alive and things get confusing.
