Then where did all the extra time go? I legitimately would like to know, as I truly have no idea how something that seemed to occur over the course of twelve days actually happened over 6 weeks.

Travel time. Covenant and Forerunner ships can move fast, but they're not instantaneous. Case in point, Regret's Carrier leaves New Mombasa on October 20th and doesn't get to Delta Halo until the first week of November. Truth, who leaves for Earth in an advanced Forerunner Dreadnought unparalleled by all other ships... still takes 5 days to get to Earth.


Well, that really puts the distances into perspective.

Dude, I haven't read any book of the series but... didn't the Ghosts of Onyx squad survive? Also Jun is MIA, that means he COULD still be alive.

I definetly have to read this novel. Shoot, you got SPARTAN-IV's, foreunner-covenant-human tech, and a whole assortment of stuff in this. But a few questions:

1: How in the hay did Engineers even get into the Micro-Dyson Sphere without being blown away by Sentinels, let alone even live in there, and how long have they been there?

2: Who is managing the SPARTAN-IV program?

3: Is Halsey probably going to be executed due to what she did during the course of the Human-Covenant war?

4: With the introduction of a surviving and fit SPARTAN-II candidate (Naomi-010), could this mean that there were plenty of other SPARTAN-II survivors as well?

tbh i was quite pissed off when i even heard of the Spartan IV's , as we still don't know much about the Orion project or the Spartan 1.1s.

Yeah, but we've got til maybe Christmas of next year so they have plenty of time to offer up further insight into those two projects so I ain't worried.

I'd love to hear more about the 1.1s as well, given that I've been waiting near 3 years for Frankie to elaborate on how ILB fits into everything.
