true; but with three bullet holes in his visor, no shields and limited oxygen supply in his armor, he isn't going to last very long without any means of propulsion.
remember newton's law: an object in motion, stays in motion, until an object of equal force disrupts its motion.
so if chief is adrift in space, he won't be able to move much faster than a crawl if that's the speed he was going at when his half of the dawn 'sploded. unless, he comes across wreckage, and uses that as a impromptu booster.
Hmm gues you are right! In my head this happened when Chief was chilling in an pelican when suddenly they got suprised by a Covie dropship ( Halo CE somewhere in that timeline ) The Autumn is crashed and there are not a lot of pelicans out there so yeah like you said he is kinda lost XD
actually, scratch what i said prior. i'd imagine if this were halo 4 (which i'm going to say it is, because of the hand armor chief has on) that dropship probably wouldn't be the covenant 'storm', but an allied version of the covenant that heard chief's distress call. still, after his experience, i'd probably take my chances with space. even though the covies on that dropship could be allies, i don't think i'd want to stay with them for any extended length of time (which would be the case, as dropships can't get to slip-space without piggybacking inside a supercarrier, or something like it) when i had to fight them for......what, three, four years? especially since chief survived reach, and reach was when the covenant were the most ruthless. i'd imagine chief would be looking for some payback.
also, would NOT want to see what constitutes as 'food' on a covie supercarrier. or the state of the mess hall.
meh, doesn't matter too much. people can bend the story around the screenshot however they wish. it's the beauty of fanfiction.
thanks, just going off of facts. i mean, if you were killing the covenant for four years, and had to stay on a supercarrier with them the entire way back to earth, would YOU be calm about it? because i wouldn't. i'd be constantly looking over my shoulder to make sure an elite wasn't trying to stick an energy dagger in my back.
oh god, lost in space. even a spartan would be terrified of that. because if you have nothing to propel you anywhere, it's just a waiting game until your oxygen runs out, and you suffocate to death. terrible way to go, but hey, the covenant are evil fuckers.
tell me about it. i would go through the seven stages of death (denial, bargaining, acceptance, etc.) before i died, for sure. plus there's also space debris you have to watch out for, and i don't know about you, but suffocating seems a lot tamer a fate than getting sliced in half by a shorn off piece of metal from a pelican wing. that would be quicker, sure, but you'd be experiencing that pain for the rest of eternity. forced to relive it over, and over again. i'd rather suffocate. at least then you get to stay whole.
yep, stupid aliens. just goes to show religion destroys all. hell it almost destroyed humanity when the flood was released. the only reason it didn't was because of chief, and even then, he had alot of trouble with it. no chief, we'd all be screwed up the bum with a hot iron rod.
Not really. It was more survival of the most Adaptive. Hell, Humanity was probably decades or more away from having energy shield tech and laser/directed energy weapons, but because of the war with the Covenant humanity was backed into a corner and forced to come up with something new. That's how they came up with the Spartan Laser and Shields for the Spartans and some smaller vehicles. While the Covenant didn't really change at all because of their superiority complex their advanced technology gave them.
Actually, funny thing is, we wasn't the rush that got the UNSC that technology, but the Covenant itself, as the Spartan's shield technology was actually studied off of the technology used in the portable shields carried by Jackals.
