In Response To: Re: Escalation #5... *SP* (TDSpiral)

: I was really looking forward to reading it, until that plot twist happened.
: The bad guy is Captain Cutter's son? What the hell? That just seemed kind
: of lazy and way too convenient, to be honest. And if you're going to do
: the whole "getting revenge for my parent" storyline, why not use
: his daughter instead? She's actually been established; this dude just
: comes from nowhere. Also, I'm not sure if we're actually going to even see
: the Spirit of Fire at this point.

: The parts on the Sangheili colony were neat. Oddly enough I'm enjoying the
: Lasky-Petra side-story more than the actual Spirit of Fire plot line;
: which I really wasn't expecting. Although I wish they depicted the
: Covenant wearing more casual clothes rather than armor. Maybe I'm just in
: a nitpicky mood this morning :P

I didn't care how they showed the Sangheili as beer-swilling drunkards. They're alien. Make them alien. Don't just make them tall, salamander-skinned humans.

I also was under the impression that without the Covenant, the Elites were still an honor-bound race. Something about a drawn energy sword was to end in its use? There were 3, and only 1 Elite died. What about the others?

The story's ok, but there are still elements that bug me.
