What did they say to each other, and what did it mean? I completely missed it.


Here the ending on YouTube:

The exchange between Cortana and Keys is the beginning of Halo: Combat Evolved! Cortana plots a random hyperspace jump to lose the covenant and by chance discover the first halo ring. The story then continues with you playing as Spartan – 117 in the first Halo game.

  • But I though "The Package" that Noble 6 delivered was the info that helped them find the first halo ring. – Mike Cole Jan 10 '11 at 21:39
  • A fragment of Cortana was the package, the fragment noble 6 carried was used to analyse the glyphs etc. This fragment was then re-united with the remainder of cortana on the pillar of autumn. Cortana had no information of the location of the ring, the rings discovery was a complete accident. – Harpal Jan 10 '11 at 22:08
  • So then what was so important about the package? What fragment of Cortana was that? Dude, I'm so lost. – Mike Cole Jan 10 '11 at 23:25
  • Cortana had information regarding the forerunner technology, thats why she knew so much about the first halo ring. Heres a couple of links regarding the ending: bungie.net/Forums/… and boards.ign.com/xbox_360_general_board/b8266/195862448/… – Harpal Jan 11 '11 at 13:33
  • The jump wasn't random. She used coordinates that were found in Forerunner ruins found by the Covenant on some planet. I forgot exactly what planet. – fent Apr 19 '11 at 10:54
