Query: I wonder what their canon status is?
Query Answer: N'thro 'Sraom and Usze 'Taham confirmed active post-Covenant War. Additional details pending [cyberintrusion] of Human [frumentarii] cores.
Catalog confirmed that N'thro 'Sraom and Usze 'Tahem are still active. :)
Frumentarii is Corn in latin. I doubt that's right.

In Roman history frumentarii are the equivalent of secret service. Based on "core" it sounds like they're AI too. What the hell are they doing? Did Catalog have to access UNSC networks to gather this information?
Allow me to ponder over why I instantly thought of the Assembly after reading that...

Query: What is the status of the CAS-Class Assault Carrier Shadow of Intent?

Toa, as per the responses we have already seen I doubt it would answer a question as big as that.
Doesn't hurt to ask.
Does any one know if we every figured out what this meant?

It kinda looks like December, 18th, 2015. At least in the beginning. I am not sure... maybe a date for a novel? If the first part is a date, what is 4551 and 4821? Do those hold any significance?
I didn't expect answers to a lot of my questions. It's worth a shot.

Are you sure it's the 18th of December? According to Vociferous (granted, back in 2012) said that the Battle of Installation 00 (so the last 4 levels of Halo 3) took place on December 11, 2552. Could it be November 18, instead?

EDIT: I feel stupid for missing those dates. Still, it's weird that it reports the activity over Mars on December 18, 7 days after the Battle of Installation 00 supposed ended. Even if Vociferous' timeline is wrong, the Gravemind somehow instantly teleported to the Ark if we are reading those dates correctly.

Yeah, I just realized that, and edited my post. I feel like an idiot.

The 7 days may be important.

That said, it does feel like the date is off, perhaps another weird timey thing like in First Strike?

Its possible the time elapsed isn't tracking the travel, but how long the portal was open.

It is not certain. I provided two different interpretations. Perhaps there are other ways of reading it.

I hope so. Neither makes any sense to me, nor in relation to established events.

Query: What is the location of the Forerunner currently known as "The Librarian," full name "Chant-To-Green."
Technically, Chant-To-Green isn't the Librarian, she's the Lifeshaper (whereas other Forerunners under her command would be Lifeworkers.) Only First-Light-Weaves-Living-Song (if that's really her real name) is the Librarian.
"876621261±512 [hours]" - I'm pretty sure this describes the moment the domain disappeared ie. the moment the Array fired. Using 8765.81277 hours in a year (from Google), that gives a date of 100,004.576 years ago, accurate to about 21 days. I think before it was just a vague 'about a hundred thousand years ago'.

The following data strings are directed at the construct identified as 'Catalog'. All references to 'you', 'your' and 'yourself' are directed towards the aforementioned construct.

Huh so my date format from page 2 was correct, but it was Catalog that made the mistake. At least that incongruity has been resolved.
