They can go FTL, but it still takes weeks or months to get from one place to another. It's more economical to ice down part of or (if there's an AI to handle the revival) all of the crew than to bring along enough supplies for everybody to be awake during the journey.

You also don't have to worry about them going stir-crazy. Perhaps less of a problem on a capital ship like the Pillar of Autumn, but in a two-person shuttle...?

It does take time between FTL jumps(?). The Pillar of Autumn made a blind jump on Aug. 30th and arrived near Installation 04 (HALO) on September 19th. Cryogenic sleep enables the subject not to age.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

So, Microsoft hired David Fincher to direct the 2 min trailer for the release of Halo 4.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

I'm not crazy about much of the new Spartan Armor. The Chief looks good, but the new Spartans IV's don't look much like Halo to me. They seem sort of generic and if not for their weapons and a few other details, I wouldn't know they were supposed to be in the Halo universe. It's not a deal breaker, but I prefer the look of the Spartan III's from Halo Reach. Their armor had a touch more realism that the IV's seem to lack in one way or another. There was an individuality to Noble team, yet you still could clearly recognize them as Spartans.

Anyway, part 2 of Forward Unto Dawn is out today. I haven't watched it yet.

Yeah, the Spartan IV armor is ugly as sin. Hopefully that's just the default, and there will be better variants.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Episode Four is up, and man do they ratchet it up to eleven. I actually sat there with my mouth agape through the last few minutes. I want this as a continuing series of 30 minute episodes once the game comes out.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Yeah, that was pretty crazy at the end. Are any of the characters from Forward Unto Dawn in the game? I don't have an 360 so I've only played the first two games, but despite that, I really like the Halo universe, and so far I've loved Forward Unto Dawn.

The impression I get is that the guy listening to Forward Unto Dawn's distress call in the first episode intro is the adult Laski. That kind of implies that he'll be in Halo 4.

Lasky is a Commander by 2557, when Halo 4 takes place, and is the executive officer of the UNSC Infinity.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

You can freeze frame the first episode, it's written Lasky on Ty Olsson's uniform. Another freeze frame about the news of a terror attack showed the events of FUD took place in April 2526, a few months after discovering planet Harvest had been glassed by the Covenants. So it came as a surprise that the existence of both the Covenants and the Spartans were kept secret. Especially by judging the reaction from the cadets in yesterday's episode.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Harvest was glassed in October 2525. It's possible, though I'm not finding any corroboration on the Halo Nation wiki, that the public was not told about the existence of the Covenant until some time after the events of H4: FUD.

ONI unveiled the existence of SPARTAN-II supersoldiers in 2547, twenty-two years after the start of the Human-Covenant War and five years prior to the war's end. Until that point, general "knowledge" of SPARTANs was rumor and conjecture. The existence of SPARTAN-III soldiers remained classified.

And THAT ladies and gentlemen, is why we don't use space tethers to evac warzones.

Also, Blondie was SO dead it's not even funny.
