: One thing I find funny is that in Marathon 2, Durandal states that he and the
: S'pht redesigned the Security Officer's weapons -- hence their new look --
: and yet in Marathon Infinity, Tycho just happens to have the exact same
: weapons for us when we work for him instead. I mean, it's obviously
: because Double Aught reused Marathon 2 resources, but I just find it funny
: that the only in-universe explanations could be that Tycho somehow stole
: them from Durandal. Or else he just made the exact same modifications in
: this timeline.
Indeed, convergent engineering? We saw in M1 that the Pfhor took an interest in studying human weapons. It seems a stretch that even with Tycho that they would engineer new ones in the same way as Tycho?
I mean obviously it's just because MI has to use the same assets as M2, but if we want to get really nerdy about it, then maybe they're the same because Durandal was working with the same Pfhor ship machinery and so he was limited to their specifications?
