Admiral Cole in Halo 5/6

Admiral Cole supposed died at the Battle of Psi Serpentis. But, there was a chance that he escaped via a last-second slipspace jump. How would you feel if he showed up in Halo 5 or 6? I think, if it worked well with the story, it'd be a fantastic nod to the classic Halo lore, and really help tie in the old with the new. Only if they made it work, though. Anything half-assed would just be a disappointment.

  • No, that would ruin the ending of the story.

  • I'd rather he stay "retired". He definitely deserves the rest. However, if Nylund comes back to write him (and more Halo stuff) I might be okay with it.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] agent wash282 I can actually see that happening (maybe not with Cole leading). With the temporary destruction of the Covenant rebels could easily get old covy, unsc, and forerunner tech (from covy stockpiles before and during the war) on the black market. So rebel groups might have a chance. I just hope we don't end up with a Stalin or Castro running things. It would have to be someone who could really set things straight and get an effective government up and running. [/quote]Honestly, most of the innies pissed enough to fight seem to be terrorists or anarchists. Anyone willing to nuke cities and destroy civilian targets to prove a point is the definition of a terrorist.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Wolverfrog If Cole returned, he'd be in danger of execution for desertion in a time of war. It was a selfish thing he did, even if completely understandable. But they wouldn't have had SURGEON hypothesise him as still alive if he wasn't going to play a part in the universe at some point in the future. He'll be living on a farm somewhere, enjoying retirement with his wife on a distant outer colony world. I don't think he'd willingly leave that unless something disastrous happened. I'd love there to be a twist with his colony rebelling in the new insurrection, and UNSC retaliation destroying his home and family. He'd take up the role of Admiral again, but for the insurrectionist revolution rather than for the UNSC. And honestly, at some point in the future of the universe I can see the insurrectionists being portrayed as the good guys. Not the terrorists, but ones who just want an end to the UNSC/UEG's tight grip. Especially with ONI becoming ever more scrupulous, and the UNSC adopting Forerunner technology which will make them more formidable than ever and thus, more able to domineer the galaxy. It's time for a revolution. [/quote]So basically the UNSC is going to become the new GE and the inssurectionists the alliance, i like it.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Chester Duncan [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] GhostLink2401 I'd rather see Lord Hood return. [/quote] I'd rather not after the 180 he did in TTW.[/quote] Honestly, I wouldn't mind seeing the series take a turn of its own. Maybe focus a part of 5 or 6 on Chief rooting out the corruption in the UNSC, and getting -blam!- back on track. Maybe a book.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] GhostLink2401 I'd rather see Lord Hood return. [/quote] It'd also be nice if we could see our buddy Arbiter again. Honestly it sounds like the Elites that hate humanity outweigh the ones that want peace. I smell an exodus.

  • I'm pretty such that Cole died, not in the battle but of old age.
