Those 3 astronauts

So I was watching the opening cutscence on the destiny beta again and the way they moved reminded of the Guardians. Even the way one of them held their weapon. It made me wonder could those 3 that discovered the traveller have been the first 3 Guardians. Would make a [i]little[/i] sense. Being the first to have contact with the traveller might mean the traveller might at first have a stronger bond with them (if that is possible I can onltly assume the traveller is some sort of intelligent being considering the events that transpired afterwards) I know there is probably a more obvious answer to the characters being similar like reusing character models of something but still I thinks it viable. Especially since that was [u]3 of them[/u] I dunno if this has been discussed before or if this was obvious to someone already I just hadn't thought about it til now, thoughts anyone? Cya all 9/9! Edit: I forgot that [spoiler]The ghost and by extension the guardians where the final act of the traveller[/spoiler] Thanks Remmus and Bhaal44 Who knows maybe you are one of the astronauts, Your ghost chose you after the traveller chose you originally (he did say he had been looking for you for a long time) he revives you cos the traveller dictates your [b][I]destiny[/b][/I] is much more than this. Cheezy but meh..😊 Runedabid helped my brain tick on that one Edit 2: The player, speaker and the guardian that stalks you. They seem to be the most popular speculative ideas for the astronauts

  • Wasn't the first gun we found at the start of the game the same gun that was used by the astronauts? If so how did it end up in the cosmodrome?

  • It would be cool if they had become guardians. The guardians are picked from the honored dead, after all.

    • Those astronauts to do bring up some questions. Why do they have a gun? If they need guns, why does only one person have one? Why don't they have a rover? Who sends people to Mars and makes them walk everywhere?

    • they move the same because its the same character model / character engine ;P using a different kind for a cutscene would be expensive

        • I think it's designed to make you draw connections and get familiar with the idea of a group of 3 exploring together.

        • Heck, maybe their roles in their mission as astronauts were the basis for the classes? It's interesting that some of them were armed since it shows that we knew we weren't alone before finding the traveller.

          • It's very possible. Maybe the traveler gave the three astronauts the power of light and they became the first hunter/Titan/warlock

            • It's an interesting theory. I was actually just watching the 'Mars' trailer a while ago and watching the Titan, Hunter and Warlock slowly march across Mars' surface reminded me of the opening cutscene in Destiny. At the very least it doesn't seem like it is a coincidence that there were 3 Astronauts and that there are 3 Guardian Classes.

                  The three are the legendary squad of Commander Shepard, Liara T'Soni, and Garrus Vakarian. Most iconic squad, period!!!
