The Enigmatic Mr. Jones
Posted By: PhilDate: 12/19/01 2:36 p.m.

While reading the Jason Jones interview, I came across this quote that I found interesting, as I'm sure many of you have...

Jason Jones writes concerning the name "Pillar of Autumn":
"But forget the name, isn't it kind of suspicious that a single human corvette had any success at all against the Covenant navy, when in every previous battle the humans mostly just got sawed in half by particle beams when they tried to stand up to the aliens? (much less disabling four of their capital ships!) Do we know anyone who can work magic in fleet engagements against odds like that?

Ow. Somebody just kicked me under the table."

So, do we know anyone like that?

From the Marathon 2 final screen:
"When Durandal returned to Sol it was not with the captured Khfiva but in a Jjaro dreadnought he called Manus Celer Dei. What he learned of the Jjaro he told no one, saying only that he had stopped by to assure that Earth did not forget him. Nor will it soon, the way he tied the Guard in knots around Pluto before folding directly into a low-Earth orbit."

Sounds like fleet engagement magic to me. Or maybe I'm just reading too much into this. Any ideas?
