Regarding the bit about Kitun 'Arach, my headcanon is that the Sangheili within the holding pen in Exuberant Witness' zoo is the same individual. The Sangheilios Guardian may have dragged the burning remains of his ship through the slipspace portal.
Also, a part of me is hoping that the mystery behind SHINOBI armor is never explained in canon... same with Void Dancer (though I have a thought that the tech in Void Dancer comes from that mysterious species in the HCEA terminals - the non-Reaper not-bears).
Quote:Loosely conceptualized by Dr. Halsey as early as 2535 CE, the Mk. VII never saw full production due to its complexity and expense. The Mk.VII featured limited energy shield shaping and an advanced nanotechnology repair suite.
So does that mean that GEN2 has this as well, if only a 'cheaper' version of such?
The Argent Moon
article is odd. It blew up with enough force to obliterate the entire Covenant fleet surrounding it, and yet there was still wreckage left over from the actual station? And:
Quote:Although the Moon’s shipboard AI was irreparably damaged when the station exploded,
The mission intel for the level implies - if not outright states - that the station AI terminated itself to comply with the UNSC's anti-Rampancy protocols, as it 'felt' itself slipping into said state, more than a month before the Kig-Yar discovered Argent Moon.
Also, that bioweapon is insanely scary. You drop that on some colony world somewhere in Sangheili (for example) space (what would be considered one of the 'inner' bands of 'Outer Colony'-equivalents), and just watch as constant travel between planets spreads it around. I am, of course, assuming that it's quite virulent, and will continue to spread even without more being added into the target environment.
Once it reaches a certain level of infection, the activation agent is released and... 24-hour (at most) depopulation across multiple systems (deployment of the agent would be incredibly easy - slipspace in, drop off a canister, slipspace out - and the agent does not need to be deployed as much as a full bioweapon would need to be, just enough to mix with the air and activate a small portion of the bioweapon - and from there, it chain-reacts with everything else that's infected). Possibly even complete eradication of local fauna, depending on if it infects animals too (I see no reason why it shouldn't).
By the way, where does one go to ask the questions that have a chance to be answered in the next Canon Fodder? Cause I have [one
Amazing fodder this week! With Argent Moon getting an article, I have to ask, why does it look like a giant battle rifle?
...how did I not see that at first?
