How did Infinity reach Requiem?

At the end of the Ark in Halo 3, the cartographer shows that the Ark is outside of the Milky Way's rim. From the end of Halo 3, Requiem appears to be close to the Ark. How did Infinity get there?

  • Infinity has a Forerunner slipspace drive, which means they can travel far faster than any other Human or Covenant ship. [Edited on 12.29.2012 1:39 PM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] TheSpiderChief As far as I am aware Requiem is not close to the Ark. Don't forget that around 2 years have passed.[/quote] 4+ actually. And the Dawn was dropped out of slipspace who knows where, so there is that as well.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Nocbl2 I think we should all recall that the Didact and Chakas were both at Installation 03, along with the Composer. Would it be that surprising for the information of Requiem to be stored with other relevant materials and data, and/or the Forerunners leaving behind something from a blown up ship?[/quote] You mean in Primordium, right? I thought that was Installation 07? Also, both halves of FuD made it through the portal. It's just that only the front half made it to Earth. Requiem isn't necessarily close to the Ark. Remember, that a Halo was activated. They were far enough away to not be killed. And they drifted for 4 years form wherever the portal dropped them off.

  • I think its either 343 not thinking or that information on the composer was not erased due to forerunners not thinking or not having time.

  • Requiem is far from the ark. If it were close to the ark requiem wouldve been destroyed or at least the explosion from the ark and the incomplete halo ring wouldve damaged the planet somehow.

  • 1) I think you mean the Dawn 2) It went through the slipspace portal, but Medicant Bias diverted the Chief's half to Requiem. Otherwise, Infinity got to Requiem because of coordinates found at Halo .03, combined with Cortana's distress signal. ^^Requiem was just another military installation; the only thing that made it unique was the Didact was there. It didn't warrent the security of a Halo. While they likely did have access denial when it came to the Flood, they're all gone now. So there'd be less restrictions for average joes. Besides, Librarian [i] wanted[/i] Didact to be found, by humans at least, so they could learn from him and him from us. It's just that his hatred got so deep he ignored his Mantle.
