In Response To: ODYSSEY and MARATHON. (Dispatcher)

: Indeed! :-)

: Also, it is interesting that the flagship of the FTL colony/ terraform ships
: is the ODYSSEY and the (flagship?) colony/ object destined for a terran
: world is the MARATHON. The affinity of these names to Greek lore
: demonstrates a purposeful naming convention. One can attibute it to
: preferences by a Bungie employee (Jason Jones?[Minotaur]), or else
: attribute it to a shared timeline. :-)

Check out those other names in the Timeline too. Some familiar ones in there. Bungie have done this before. Remember the "Tuncer Mirage Effect"?
