Breaking and changing are the same thing,breaking is just to a higher degreeNo it doesn't. It changes the canon in one small place. Breaking canon would be something like the halos were actually never fired.See but it does,Johnson and chief didnt meet til 2552 but somehow met over 20 years earlier in silent storm which does in fact break previous canonNow that's just nitpicking, I didn't mention that as it has already been said in conversation between us. The bottom line is that silent Storm does not break canon.And in silent stormThe only reason given in first strike is borens syndrome. We only know of Johnson's involvement in Orion from contact harvest.They kind of say that in first strikeMasterOfWar6615 wrote:How do we know it was his Orion augmentations that made him immune to the Flood and not Borens? Augmentations didn't save Chief from that infection form in The Flood. If it were augmentations, Chief should be able to just walk through the infection forms.Halsey learns that sgt johnson was a spartan even though in first strike she apparently doesnt remember him she says borens syndrome was the reason he was immune to the flood instead of his Orion augmentations.While lore like that might not feel like a big break in canon to most, it is to me and A few others because it wasnt necessary.You didnt even need Johnson in this book.tuhin94 wrote:After a few books, I’ll be reading Silent Storm. I’m looking forward to it. I’ve seen some posts suggesting it breaks established canon and other suggesting those breaks, if there are any, are very minor. Can I get some comments regarding this? I don’t mind spoilers if they’re minor, but please do mention if there are any major plot points related to this.
