Off-topic: Flood Killer--you put in your location as "Planet Reach," but Reach was destroyed before Halo 1 even took place. This is from the last paragraph of the prologue found in Halo 1's manual:
QUOTE(Halo 1 Manual - Last Paragraph of the Prologue)
Existing SPARTAN-II soldiers are recalled to Reach for further augmentation. The plan: board a Covenant vessel with the improved SPARTAN-IIs and learn the location of the Covenant homeworld. Two days before the mission begins, Covenant forces strike Reach and annihilate the colony. The Covenant are now on Earth's doorstep. One ship, called the Pillar of Autumn, escapes with the last SPARTAN-II and makes a blind jump into deep space, hoping to lead the Covenant away from Earth.
On-Topic: Wow... saved it to my computer, I'll read it later. Geez, what person took the time to write all that?
