In Response To: Re: More Halo backstory details (Tynskel)

: Counteract this argument with facts:
1. FTL drives. The poem mentions nothing
: about FTL drives in the 26th century. What it states are the Marines and
: their stasis chambers during the 26th century.

I'm not just talking about the poem but all the halo information we have. I mean wasn't there something about the pillar of autumn dropping out of hyperspace somewhere (maybe not)

: 2.Teleporters: teleporters, from my understanding, use a substantial amount
: of power that are only used in emergencies. If you notice, the teleporter
: in Marathon was a technology that the humans did have, but they had it for
: the Marathon only. If you also note, it was short ranged and it was on the
: Marathon only (that we know of). The Marathon was a colony ship, not a
: dropship. The dropships have no where the power generation to use
: teleporters, or the humans would be using energy weapons for those things.

If teleporters are only used for emergencies then why were escape pods used to get everyone off the PoA and not telepoters. A spaceship blowing up sounds like an emergency.

: 3. the energy weapons: Ah yes, why don't the humans have fusion weapons? Well
: if you remember those weapons were very unstable and rare weapons. I can't
: remember where in Marathon it says this, but it does. The humans,
: obviously, on a small ship don't have the facilities to build such a
: weapon. Also, because the weapon was unstable, only a few were made, and
: still need major improvements on the technology.

If energy weapons are so unstable then why is that all that the Covenant use?
